Superior Coverage

The New York Times has published a very flattering profile of Jon Michael Hill, who plays Franco Wicks in Superior Donuts, newly open on Broadway after its successful run at Steppenwolf, with the whole Chicago cast intact. Hill was incandescent the first time around, and by all reports has gotten even better since. It's the sort of life story all young actors dream about (Steppenwolf ensemble member and acclaimed Broadway debut by the age of 24? Really?), and luckily Hill really has what it takes to make the best of the opportunity.

My only request is this: I know that this show will open up a lot of opportunities for Hill, and he'd be a fool not to take advantage of them, but please Jon, don't forget us in Chicago. You grew up here, this city gave you your big break, and we'd be pissed if you pulled a Sinise and abandoned us. Just saying. Be a pal?

That's exactly what I thought when I read the profile!
