First Rate. All aspects of the production were excellent. The play has been referred in the press as a "lighter" play (as compared to "August: Osage County") and as a comedy, and although there are certainly lots of laughs, I perceived this play as more of a drama, and a bittersweet one. As in AOC, the characters are highly ideosyncratic and somewhat disfunctional, lone anti-social individuals who consciously cut ties to friends and family. Superior Donuts offers hope for recovery, but still leaves the audience with a gentle sadness at opportunity lost.
Written by Tracy Letts
Directed by Randall Arney
As a playwright, Letts' work includes Killer Joe, Bug and Man From Nebraska, which premiered at Steppenwolf, was named a finalist for the 2004 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and was awarded the 2008 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the 2008 Tony Award for Best Play for August: Osage County. Letts was also named as one of Time’s Best of 2003.
