Good day on this chilly Thursday.
Riverwalk Theatre’s latest production is a tale of friendship, cultural change and donuts. “Superior Donuts” tells the story of Arthur Przybyszewski, an owner of a rundown donut shop in Chicago who is reluctant to accept change. Franco, Arthur’s lively and problematic assistant, sees the donut shop struggling and tries to revamp the business. The comedy/drama explores the challenges of embracing the past and the redemptive power of friendship. 7 p.m. Thursday; 8 p.m. Friday-Saturday; 2 p.m. Sunday. Friday-Sunday tickets: $15/$12 seniors, students and military; Thursday tickets: $10/$8 students, seniors and military. Riverwalk Theatre, 228 Museum Drive, Lansing.
