Split Personality

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.

Duos, Trios and Teams: ‘Next-Generation’ Mother-Daughter Leppert Duo Debuts

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!
