Letts' Superior Donuts Opens Tonight

Letts' Superior Donuts Opens Tonight

Two weeks ago tonight, Tracy Letts' August: Osage County earned the Tony Award for Best Play. That modern masterpiece premiered nearly one year ago at Chicago's Steppenwolf. Now, Letts' latest work Superior Donuts opens this evening at the Windy City theatre where August: Osage County got its start.

And the entire theatre world will be watching. Closely.

Helmed by Tina Landau, Superior Donuts boasts a fine company of actors, including Jon Michael Hill, James Vincent Meredith, Yasen Peyankov, Jane Alderman, Kate Buddeke, Cliff Chamberlain, Michael Garvey, Robert Maffia and Michael McKean.

Will lightning strike once again for Letts and his fellow Steppenwolf ensemble members? I can't wait to find out as I'll be on hand for tonight's hotly anticipated opening. Tomorrow, look for my critics' capsule.

This is Steve On Broadway (SOB).
