In this episode of "Unwrap Your Candies Now," Ernie Manouse gets an inside look at A Chorus Line and what it's like to cast and stage this Broadway classic with Megan Larche Dominick, Theatre Under The Stars' Associate Artistic Director / Director of New Works. TUTS presents the Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize-winning musical that portrays the life of a Broadway dancer, September 10 – 22 at The Hobby Center.

Then, Catherine Lu chats with Bradly Brown, curator of the San Jacinto College South Campus Gallery, whose latest exhibit is Golf Coast. The interactive art installation is a mini-golf course modeled on seven Houston bayous, complete with the city's freeways, landmarks and other local details surrounding it – and built mostly from recycled materials. Brown talks about the making of, and thinking behind, Golf Coast, on view and ready for play August 26 – September 27.
