Call Me Ann is a rock opera about Texas Governor Ann Richards, and tells the story of her life and influence. The story spans from Ann Richards' Waco roots to her time as a housewife turned County Commissioner, through to her election as Governor in 1990 and past her 1994 re-election defeat that set the stage for George W. Bush's election as Governor and then President.

In addition to the politics and history, learn about Ann's life as she raised 4 kids, led legendary parties in Austin in the 1970s before getting both sober and divorced in the 1980s, and managed to keep her sense of humor and style as she became a national face of Texas. Molly Ivins, George W. Bush, Karl Rove all appear as characters, and are backed by a full rock band playing original music.
