The acting in this play is spectacular. The actors who play Arthur & Franco were both out of this world and the supporting actors were all very strong.

Saw this in the Royal George Cabaret Theatre, the same place where I saw a production of Killer Joe, also by Tracy Letts. It was interesting to note similarities (major debts, fights) between the shows, but Donuts had light moments that were...continued

The story was touching about decent, lonely people with problems. The two leads were exceptional and the entire cast was excellent. A really special piece of theater.
