Michael McKean and Jon Michael Hill star in Pulitzer Prize winner Tracy Letts' Superior Donuts, currently playing Broadway's Music Box Theatre.

In the new play, according to the producers, "Arthur Przybyszewski owns a decrepit donut shop in the Uptown neighborhood of Chicago. Franco Wicks, a black teenager who is his only employee, wants to change the shop for the better. This provocative comedy, set in the heart of one of Chicago's most diverse communities, explores the challenges of embracing the past and the redemptive power of friendship."

Tina Landau directs a cast that also features Yasen Peyankov, James Vincent Meredith, Jane Alderman, Kate Buddeke, Cliff Chamberlain, Michael Garvey and Robert Maffia.
