Crank Collective Presents a Texas History Operetta

Arts Eclectic feature on "Alamo Aftermath"

This November, Crank Collective will debut the second of three Texas history musicals. "Alamo Aftermath: A Texas Revolution Operetta" tells the story of Jose Antonio Menchaca in the time between the Alamo and the battle of San Jacinto.

Before people started mispronouncing his name when referring to a street in south Austin, Menchaca was a soldier in the Texas Revolution, a mayor pro tem of San Antonio, and a crusader for the rights of Tejano veterans.
