Megan Hilty 2. Orfeh—21% Immoral pleasures? She played a stripper in The Great American Trailer Park Musical. Business smarts? She seemed to do pretty well running The Hair Affair in Legally Blonde. Obviously, it’s a natural fit for her to play the owner of a brothel down south. Plus, just imagine those riffs. Star Files As soon as we heard the news that Rob Ashford was bringing The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas back to Broadway, we were, a) doing the sidestep with excitement and b) wrapping our casting director minds around who would be the perfect Mona. The role landed Carlin Glynn a Tony Award back in 1979, so whoever takes on Mona now has some big cowboy boots to fill. So, who do you want to see run the Chicken Ranch? The votes are in, and here’s what you had to say! 3. Kristin Chenoweth—19% Maybe not everything is bigger in Texas. Kristin Chenoweth certainly has the spunk, but it’d also be interesting to see the Tony winner take on a role that’s also no-nonsense. We’ve heard her coloratura soprano and her classic Broadway belt. Now it’s time for Cheno to bring her proven country chops to the Great White Way! 1. Megan Hilty—27% Hmm…Megan Hilty in a role Dolly Parton has played on screen. Has that ever been done before? Oh, right. Sure, she’s a bit younger than the part is traditionally portrayed, but this Smashing starlet would bring a welcomed youthful energy to Mona, and as she’s proven in several roles, has both the camp factor and dramatic flair to bring some life to that “Little Bitty Pissant Country Place.” View Comments Kristin Chenoweth
