Superior Donuts

Closed January 1, 2010

Superior Donuts, a gentle comedy that unfolds like an extended episode of a 1970s sitcom, is a warm bath of a play that will leave Broadway audiences with satisfied smiles rather than rattled nerves.

Charles Isherwood, New York Times

Why See Superior Donuts?

Pulitzer Prize winner Tracy Letts (August: Osage County) follows up with an affectionate paean to Chicago and the redemptive power of friendship.

The passive Arthur Przybyszewski owns a decrepit donut shop in the Uptown neighborhood of Chicago. The dynamic Franco Wicks, a black teenager who is his only employee, wants to improve the place.
