    Carol Hall, who helped turn an unlikely inspiration into one of the biggest Broadway hits of the 1970s when she wrote the music and lyrics for The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas , died Thursday at her home in Manhattan. She was 82. Hall, a 1954 graduate of Highland Park High School, was enjoying moderate success as a singer and songwriter when, developing an idea first hatched during a dinner party conversation, she, Peter Masterson and Larry L. King created Best Little Whorehouse , a comedy based on an article King had written in 1974 for Playboy .
