Donuts Fills Fall Hole On Broadway?

Donuts Fills Fall Hole On Broadway?

Great news for theatre fans eagerly awaiting Tracy Letts' follow-up to August: Osage County, the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning Best Play from 2008.

According to Chicago Tribune's Chris Jones, Letts' Superior Donuts -- which I loved when taking in its world premiere last summer at Windy City's Steppenwolf Theatre -- will likely be coming to Broadway this fall with most of its original cast intact.

Tina Landau apparently is set to return to the helm of a somewhat evolved incarnation of the show. Superior Donuts originally starred an astonishing and nearly unrecognizable Michael McKean opposite a wonderfully cocksure Jon Michael Hill, along with Kate Buddeke, James Vincent Meredith and Yasen Peyankov.

I for one can't wait to see this heartwarming play yet again. Should this become a reality, Broadway audiences are in for a very pleasant surprise.

This is Steve On Broadway (SOB).

Oh wow, I was hoping Superior Donuts would make it to New York so I could see it! And if August: Osage County is still running, Tracy Letts will have two plays on Broadway at the same time - a pretty rare thing, I'd imagine.
