After the superb August:Osage County, and its richly deserved accolades, Mr. Letts could probably have had his next play produced on Broadway no matter how weak or recycled it was. I didnt go expecting a great drama, he made it clear this was a lighter confection, but the sitcom I got was less than satisfying.
Loved it, everything about it. Its tightly constructed, with excellent characters and fine actors.
We loved Tracy Letts new play, Superior Donuts. All the actors were wonderful, but there was a fantastic standout performance by Jon Michael Hill. Michael McKean was at his best---and that is quite a complement considering his considerable talent. We laughed, were taken aback and cried--- pure Tracy Letts!
