Tracy Letts's 2008 comedy unfolds in the rundown Uptown doughnut shop owned by weary leftover hippie Arthur Przybyszewski, who gets shaken out of his somnambulant existence by Franco Wicks, an exuberant dreamer with a manuscript in his book bag and bookies on his tail. A hit at Mary-Arrchie Theatre Company's own Uptown space last spring, this remount is being staged at the relatively chi-chi Royal George Cabaret in Lincoln Park. But Matt Miller's staging still feels authentically grubby, starting with the set by Bob Groth and Jenniffer Thuysing (a dead ringer for a pancake house I used to frequent at Broadway and Lawrence). In Arthur, Richard Cotovsky has found the part he was born to play. —Zac Thompson
