Franco Wicks, a young African-American man, and Arthur’s only employee, wants to modernize the shop while Arthur is more content to spend the day reminiscing about his Polish immigrant father.

Superior Donuts will run from January 12-28, 2018. To reserve tickets for the production contact the Lyric Arts box office at 763-422-1838 or visit www.lyricarts.org. Intended for mature audiences.
