Rated 4.0

The bawdy tale of the Chicken Ranch, a small-town brothel with a statewide reputation, gets wild when a TV reporter (Bob Baxter, who also directs) shines his light on Miss Mona’s (the outstanding Ruth Phillips) operation. The sheriff (Michael Maples) can’t help much, and chaos ensues—complete with high-steppin’ choreography by Darryl Stroh. A bit naive about literal prostitution and completely honest about political prostitution, language and innuendo make this show inappropriate for young children, but great fun for everyone else. F, Sa 8pm; Su 2pm. Through 7/31. $15-$22. Runaway Stage Productions at the 24th Street Theatre, 2791 24th St.; (916) 207-1226;
