Tracy Letts’s follow-up to August: Osage County is a serviceable, often touching comedy. In Superior Donuts we’ve got Arthur Przybyszewski, an ineffectual former hippie who runs the Uptown donut shop his Polish immigrant parents opened in 1950. Into Arthur’s ruin walks Franco Wicks—an exuberant young black man bursting with promise. His spunk and drive awaken in Arthur something resembling hope. Stuff happens. But the play’s essential, humble purposes are to chart Arthur and Franco’s friendship, and to celebrate Chicago. (ZT)
