Ruffled, racy and sexy-sheer spring fashion steals the spotlight at The Gordy, Stages Repertory Theatre’s fabulous new $35 million setup a block south of its former Montrose location. Here, a warehouse with bunker-thick concrete walls that once inconspicuously housed storage and restoration facilities for the MFA has become a vibrant, state-of-the-art production facility with three separate stages, 608 seats and 70,000 total square feet. Silence your phones, unwrap all candy, and let’s get on with the show!

AN INTERVIEW WITH Jon Heine President of Houston Market, Veritex Community Bank

What were your biggest challenges of 2020? Without question the biggest challenge was pivoting from the playbook we had to begin 2020 in order to quickly address the immediate needs of our clients, colleagues and communities.

This involved a Herculean effort from over 120 of our colleagues in various departments of the Bank who raised their hand to assist not because of an opportunity, but out of obligation to the communities we serve.
