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!

Clare Leppert and Clementine, the Cavachon. Leigh Leppert and Benny, the Bernedoodle.

HOW DID YOU come together as a team? This fall, we are celebrating the introduction of an exciting real estate collaboration between Clare Leppert, longtime Houston Realtor®, and daughter Leigh Leppert. Clare shared a 20+ year real estate partnership with her mother, Bette Carpenter, until Bette’s death in 2016. Having worked solo for several years, Clare in 2021 was awarded Houston Business Journal’s No. 2 Luxury Realtor® in Houston. Leigh, who has been working in marketing for the past decade, has always shared a passion for real estate and watched Clare successfully balance family and career. We are excited to re-create the next generation of a mother-daughter duo at Compass!
