Okay, maybe not edible, but certainly enjoyable, Superior Donuts is a delicious comedy/drama that opens at Circle Theatre this Thursday as they continue their 67th Main Stage season at 7:30 p.m. inside the Performing Arts Center on the campus of Aquinas College.

Superior Donuts is brought to the Circle stage by Production Sponsor Steelcase and is rated R for strong language and adult situations.

Under the direction of Mike Hull, Superior Donuts tells the story of Arthur, a Polish - American, who 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 comedy-drama by Tony® Award and Pulitzer Prize–winning author Tracy Letts explores the challenges of embracing the past and the redemptive power of friendship.

Circle Theatre audience members can take advantage of the Lobby Bar on select nights throughout the summer, including the August 9 performance of Superior Donuts. On August 9, Michigan craft beer and wine as well as donuts from Marge’s Donut Den will be available starting at 7:00 p.m.; beverages can be enjoyed inside the theatre on that evening.

Superior Donuts runs August 8 - 10, 14-17, 21 - 24 at 7:30 p.m. and August 18 at 5:30pm. For more information or to purchase tickets, please call the box office at 616.456.6656 or visit Circle’s website at circletheatre.org.
