Tracy Letts' latest drama comes to Broadway direct from Chicago.
Comments from published critics
‘‘"A warm bath of a play that will leave Broadway audiences with satisfied smiles. Tracy Letts has a finely honed sense of comic rhythms, as he displayed in August. Jon Michael Hill is making a confident Broadway debut, playing Franco with boundless, buoyant charm. Michael McKean gives a moving performance."’’
‘‘"Tender and honest, Superior Donuts is beautifully written, acted and directed. A timely reminder of the heady pleasure ace actors and ace storytelling can bring. Tracy Letts gets a deluxe production from Tina Landau and a cast in a state of grace. Jon Michael Hill transcends."’’
‘‘"Tasty, warm and fulfilling! Tracy Letts creates vivid characters and always has surprises up his sleeve. Director Tina Landau has blended the play's ingredients into a fast-paced and finely designed concoction."’’
‘‘"Four stars. These Donuts cast their jocund spell. A well-written comedy with uniformly solid performances. What is impressive about Tracy Letts is his scope. The lovably understated Michael McKean is perfectly balanced by the lively Jon Michael Hill. Tina Landau has directed with her usual insight and aplomb."’’
‘‘"Sometimes donuts can have nutritional value -- at least dramatically. Such is the cast with Superior Donuts. It's got heart and more than a few laughs, a recipe that makes for an evening of fine entertainment. All nine actors, under the direction of Tina Landau, are superb."’’
