Tracy Letts's Superior Donuts opens on Broadway October 1, at the Music Box Theatre--the same venue about to be vacated by Letts's Pulitzer- and Tony-winning August: Osage County. (August transferred to the Music Box on April 29, 2008, after starting its New York run December 4, 2007, at the Imperial. It had its world premiere here, at Steppenwolf Theatre.)

A comedy set in a run-down donut shop in Chicago's Uptown neighborhood, Superior Donuts premiered at Steppenwolf last summer, under Tina Landau's direction.  Landau will also stage the New York show, which is being produced by Jeffrey Richards, Jean Doumanian, Steve Traxler, and Jerry Frankel--the team that brought August east. Previews for Superior Donuts begin September 16.
