Where's the Bull? Cast Members From Urban Cowboy Musical Stop By HMNS Texas Exhibit

They certainly dressed the part. Clad in cowboy hats, shorts and flip-flops, members of the cast of Urban Cowboy the musical, which opens at Miller Outdoor Theatre tomorrow, stopped by the Houston Museum of Natural Science Wednesday morning to have a gander at some Texas treasures. On hand were the famous cannon and "Come and Take It" flag from the Battle of Gonzales, an original Bowie knife, clothes worn by General Santa Anna and native American artifacts.
