BEST ACTOR IN A DRAMA (1999)

For years Janasz has been one of the Guthrie's most underappreciated players, probably because he disappears so far into his characters that we forget there's a man underneath. This quiet depth was evident in his performances as the sputteringly proper Jack Worthing in The Importance of Being Earnest, the dotty cuckold in A Month in the Country, and the loquacious dilettante in Molly Sweeney. His steady presence is one of the reasons we go back to the Guthrie--and his absence is one of the reasons we frown on Dowling's quest to attract ever more imported actors.
