Jason Chanos, Fully Committed

When Jason Chanos last made an impression in a Kansas City production, it was as the lovestruck title character in the Heart of America Shakespeare Festival's Romeo and Juliet. In the Unicorn's one-man show Fully Committed, however, Chanos received his pass into adulthood from director Mark Robbins. Chanos would have been fine simply playing the beleaguered reservations agent for a hot New York restaurant, yet he also played every caller and most of the eatery's staff. Whether he was embodying men or women, straights or gays, Jews or Presbyterians, his sweat was our reward.
