The Confessions of Davy Crockett
Davy Crockett is coming to San Antonio for 4 performances only at the Josephine Theatre. Friday, March 6 at 7:30pm; Saturday at 2:00pm and 7:30pm; and Sunday at 2:00pm.
March 6 marks the anniversary of the fall of the Alamo 184 years ago. This event rose quickly to national and international fame due in no small part to the death of the already legendary David Crockett who had only been in Texas for two months. The man is myth, hero, and legend all wrapped up into one genuine person. His accomplishments as a hunter, frontiersman, humorist, Indian fighter and a politician are well documented, but here, the night before Davy will set off for Texas, his friends gather in a Memphis tavern to hear his stories and homespun wisdom one last time. He stands alone on stage to share with us his curious journey through adventures with bears and Indians and war and politicians and the love of his life. He tells us of his allure for the untamed West. He shares his sorrows, his pains, his triumphs, his delights, and reveals what drove him from Tennessee to Texas and his final destiny. And in the humanity of the man, we find his simple heroism.
