The Purple Rose Theatre Company will present Jeff Daniels’ Onstage & Unplugged for a limited six-show engagement from Thursday, Dec. 27 to Monday, Dec. 31.

“A prolific songwriter as well as playwright, Daniels will perform an arsenal of songs that are alternately humorous and poignant,” according to the press release.

He has toured nationally with his music, but has reduced his concert appearances since landing the lead role on HBO’s series “The Newsroom.”

Daniels will be joined by special guests Brad Phillips and Jed Fritzemeier, the Ben Daniels Band and Luc “The Roadie” Daniels and his Big Bay Shuffle for both New Year’s Eve performances.

“Jeff’s got an incredibly busy schedule now, so we’re honored that he’s able to fit in these concerts during his holiday break,” says PRTC Artistic Director Guy Sanville, in the press release.

Tickets for most shows are $75, and there is a special event ticket price of $250 for the 8 p.m. show on New Year’s Eve which includes dinner, drinks, special guests and prizes.

After a one-year hiatus from “Unplugged”, this year’s line-up will feature old favorites as well as newer songs from his most recent release “Keep It Right Here,” featuring Brad Phillips and Dominic John Davis.

Tickets go on sale Monday, Nov. 19 by phone at 433-7673 and online at
