When the name Melinda McCrary appears on a program, you go see what she's in and savor her presence. McCrary, whom local theatergoers have known for a while now, just plain doesn't appear often enough onstage. So when she starred in not one but two plays in Kansas City Actors Theatre's Pinter Project, we were there to applaud, and McCrary did not disappoint. As Meg, a perky but dim British boardinghouse operator in The Birthday Party, she was stellar (and earned gushing critical notices). In The Lover, McCrary took on a radically different role, and her chemistry with her co-star, Mark Robbins, wowed the audience. It's clear that Kansas City theater buffs are in love with McCrary. Now if only she would give us more of what we want.
