Dylan Godwin, 35, is the face of Christmas. Well, actually faces. As the star of the Alley Theatre’s one-man show, Fully Committed, the Tyler, Texas area native plays 40 characters, all jockeying for a hard-to-get holiday table at a trendy Manhattan eatery. “One of the hardest things I’ve ever had to do,” admits the still-new company member. “I can’t think about it too much or I get hives.” The lanky thesp is a self-described “Dick Van Dyke type” whose grandma still asks when he’s going to do Mary Poppins, and he got his first break when he was cast in a tour of Fiddler on the Roof while still in college at Sam Houston. Can you spot two other fun facts (and one fib) about him here?


1. This isn’t his first one-man show. He staged a one-kid Three Little Pigs on his Tyler, Texas-area ranch at age eight.

2. His favorite childhood pets included an emu named Friedrich.

3. He divides time between Houston and Mexico City, where his BF’s family has lived for generations.

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. Working with our customers to provide loan payment deferrals and PPP loans through the SBA Payroll Protection Program (Veritex Bank provided over $400 million to 2,100 clients in Round 1) became the immediate priority. 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.
