Reader Review

Myself and Antoine McKay, whom you may have seen on Fox's "Empire" get to improvise with each other each week. And we just got a fantastic review!

 

Generals 

When: Through 2/21: Sun 8 PM 
Price: $8
Hosted by Antoine McKay and Christy Bonstell, this one-hour set is a uniquely theatrical Annoyance production featuring improv inspired by special guest stage actors. Three-time Jeff Award winner Aaron Todd Douglas (Congo Square Theatre Company, Goodman Theatre) kicked things off with an Othello monologue on the night I attended, which “’twas passing strange” and cleverly turned on its head in McKay and Bonstell’s successive bits as a dimwitted monk and progressive nun. The duo’s most interesting talent, made clear after Douglas’s second monologue, from August Wilson's Seven Guitars, is their ability to blend comedy and drama on the fly. One minute a doomed southern couple mourns their relationship that never was; the next, a seedy man in tight pants places a blackjack bet with Pringles. —Marissa Oberlander

Shameless

I got to play a homeless woman on Shameless. It was a fantastic experience.

When I'm not doing that, you can find me writing, performing, teaching and hosting for Second City Works, iO Theater or Dave & Co.
