Steppenwolf Theatre's production of "Superior Donuts," will open on Broadway on Oct. 1.
Written by Pulitzer- and Tony Award-winning ensemble member Tracy Letts and directed by ensemble member Tina Landau, the comedy had its world premiere at Steppenwolf last summer. That production starred Michael McKean as Arthur Przybyszewski, the owner of a decrepit donut shop in Uptown, and Jon Michael Hill as Franco Wicks, a black teenager, his only employee, and someone who wants to change the shop for the better. Casting for the Broadway engagement will be announced shortly.
The play will be produced on Broadway by Jeffrey Richards, Jean Doumanian, Steve Traxler and Jerry Frankel, the producing team behind Steppenwolf's Tony Award-winning "August: Osage County."
