About the Show
Generals is improv duo Antoine McKay (Empire, Patriot, Sense8) and Christy Bonstell (Shameless, Chicago Med, APB). Each week they host one performer from the acting world (Steppenwolf, Goodman, Jeff Award Winners…) to join them and perform their favorite General audition monologues. They then improvise off of that material. This Reader Recommended show combines the best of both worlds into one high-energy, big-hearted joyfest.
“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. “–Chicago Reader.
