The Newest Play By Tracy Letts Titled Superior Donuts Opens On Broadway Starring Michael Mckean In A Light-Hearted Comedy That Is Funny And Touching

Tracy Lett's Newest Play "Superior Donuts" Opens On Broadway

Superior Donuts Broadway Show

Pulitzer Prize winner Tracy Letts' newest play is nothing like his two best-known works, the creepy psychological thriller Bug and the epic family drama August: Osage County. In Superior Donuts, Arthur Przybyszewski (Michael McKean), the proprietor of a dilapidated Chicago donut shop, hires a clever young black man from the neighborhood named Franco Wicks to help out - and gets a lot more than he bargained for.

Unlike those other plays, Superior Donuts is a surprisingly conventional comedy about a man with a painful past who finds that an unexpected friendship is what he needs to finally move forward with his life. It is a solid effort, both funny and touching, with notable performances from Jon Michael Hill as Franco and Yasen Peyankov as the Russian business owner who wants to buy Arthur's donut shop.
