WCQ222 Tina Landau and Pride Filled Donuts

Host: Amy Matheny with co-Host Kelli Simpkins

Happy Pride everyone! As Amy heads out of town to Tennessee, she and Kelli talk about their first pride parades, fanny packs, and what is the superior donut? They disagree on that one.

Guest: Amy sits down in the lobby of Steppenwolf Theatre with Tina Landau, the award-winning director of the new Tracy Lett's play - SUPERIOR DONUTS. They talk about being lesbians in theatre, diving into new work, their love of Broadway musicals...and Tina gives Amy a HUGE compliment on XENA LIVE. Plus did Amy make Tina lose her train of thought? All in all, it is a rare interview for Tina answering questions that most interviewers never ask. Superior Donuts plays through August 17th at Steppenwolf. For tickets visit

LUCY V.: Mmmmmmmmmm donuts. I like donuts, do you like donuts?? It’s like sugar bread. I used to love white long johns as a kid because that’s what my dad always got. I still like them but I really like peanut donuts or blueberry cake donuts. Krispy Kreme hot.. There really is nothing else like them. Kelli must try them someday!
