    I loved the too short interview with Jeff Daniels. I have loved him ever
    since “The purple rose of Cairo”. Did I catch him alluding to the name of his theatre in Michigan is “the Purple Rose”? What city in Michigan?

    Gail, the theatre in Michigan is in Chelsea, Michigan and it is called “The Purple Rose” theatre. It is delightful and experimental and the population around Michigan is lucky to have it.
