Kicking off their 25th season this week, Jump-Start will officially change its name to “The Sterling Houston Theatre” in honor of their gone but never forgotten creative director. In 2005, Sterling Houston delved into revisionist history by writing the witty, musical melodrama High Yellow Rose. The all female cast gets the pleasure of satirizing military machismo in the forms of Santa Anna and Sam Houston, while accentuating the role of one of the Texas Revolution’s coolest and most controversial characters — Emily Morgan. $16, 3pm, Jump-Start Theatre, 108 Blue Star, San Antonio, (210) 227-5867, jump-start.org
