Mary-Arrchie Theatre Company is taking a chance on a high-profile remount of its hit production of Superior Donuts at the Royal George Theatre. Director Matt Miller will again helm the play for a four-week run October 31–November 25 in the Royal George's 193-seat Cabaret Theatre, with most of his original cast, led by Richard Cotovsky and Jeff nominee Preston Tate Jr., intact.


The second Chicago production of Tracy Letts's Uptown-set play following its 2008 debut at Steppenwolf, Donuts ran for 12 sold-out weeks last spring at Angel Island, Mary-Arrchie's cozy Lakeview walkup; you can read my February review here. With a two-week July remount at Metropolis Performing Arts Centre in Arlington Heights, producing director Carlo Garcia says Donuts is the best selling production in Mary-Arrchie's 27-year history. The Royal George transfer comes with a hefty hike in ticket prices—$50 ($40 for students and seniors), up from $18–$22 at Angel Island. Tickets go on sale this Friday at the Royal George box office and Ticketmaster.
