Here’s what critics have had to say about SUPERIOR DONUTS:

“A warm bath of a play that will leave Broadway audiences with satisfied smiles. Tracy Letts has a finely honed sense of comic rhythms, as he displayed in August: Osage County.”

                                                                                                -The New York Times

“Tender and Honest, Superior Donuts, is beautifully written, acted, and directed. A timely reminder of the heady pleasure ace actors and ace storytelling can bring.”

                                                                                                -New York Post

“3 ½ Stars! Tasty, Warm, and Fulfilling!”
                       
                                                                                                -NY Daily News

“An evening of fine entertainment. We are hooked!”

                                                                                                -Associated Press

“A soulful play, full of humor and humanity. Tracy Letts continues to surprise. His words are so alive with poignancy and wit that they take hold of you”

                                                                                                -Variety

“3 ½ stars. Tremendously entertaining. A sweet, warm comedic confection.”

                                                                                                -USA Today
