News   Mitch Albom's New Play, Duck Hunter, Is an Instant Hit in Michigan; Three Weeks Added Michigan's Purple Rose Theatre Company announced a three-week extension of the hit world premiere staging of Mitch Albom's comedy, Duck Hunter Shoots Angel.

Originally scheduled to close Aug. 28, Duck Hunter Shoots Angel will now run to Sept. 18.

Performances for the rest of the engagement will be Wednesdays-Saturdays at 8 PM with Wednesday and Saturday matinees at 3 PM and Sunday matinees at 2 PM.

All performances are at the Purple Rose Theatre, 137 Park Street, Chelsea, MI.

The additional performances are being added to accommodate record ticket sales. Performances through the end of August were almost sold out as of July 8.

"We're fortunate to be able to add additional September performances to satisfy Mitch's millions of fans," said PRTC executive director Jeff Daniels, in a statement. "We only wish we had a million seats." Duck Hunter Shoots Angel is a "tender comedy about a tabloid journalist searching for two Alabama hunters who believe they shot a celestial being. Full of zany characters like Alligator Man and the Early brothers, Duck Hunter Shoots Angel is an out-of-this-world tale full of magical surprises and unexpected second chances."

PRTC artistic director Guy Sanville directs.
