Tinguely Fountain in Fribourg, Germany
Today we continue to pave the way to the upcoming open-house events in Houston's Theater and Museum Districts. We learn about two ground-breaking and rarely-seen fountains on display at the Menil Collection. And, Gene Bartholomew stops in to talk about the hit musicals that the Broadway in Houston series has planned for next season . . .
