Ed Asner Performance at The Sauk Delayed Into 2021

Ed Asner, the most honored male performer in the history of the Primetime Emmy Awards, will still visit The Sauk, but audiences will now have to wait until May 2021.

Asner will bring his one-man show A Man and His Prostate to the Jonesville venue for two performances, May 7 and 8, 2021.

"We hate to keep delaying Mr. Asner's visit to Jonesville," said Sauk Executive Director Trinity Bird. "However, we have already sold over 60 percent of the tickets available and given the current restrictions, we cannot accommodate all those who purchased tickets. We also want to make sure we can host the show when Mr. Asner can safely travel to Michigan."

Bird consulted with Asner and his daughter Liza who manages his tour when making the decision to delay. The Asner's said they have delayed most performances into the new year. One new announcement is that, if it can be safely done, Mr. Asner will add a meet and greet to his Sauk visit. Information on the possible meet and greet will be announced at a later date.
Inspired by the true-life story of Asner's long-time collaborator, Ed Weinberger, A Man and His Prostate tells the story of a man on vacation in Italy. After collapsing, he finds himself a patient in a hospital full of doctors who don't speak English. While funny and irreverent, the show includes a very sincere message about serious men's health concerns.

Asner may be best known as Lou Grant, a character he played on both "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" and "Lou Grant." His voice is also recognized as Carl in Disney Pixar's "Up."

All currently sold tickets have been transferred to the corresponding new date (Monday for Thursday, Tuesday for Friday). Current ticket holders only need to contact The Sauk if they want to move their tickets to the other performance date or if they want to request a refund. Those wishing for a refund are encouraged to consider donating their tickets back to The Sauk.

Tickets are still available for both performances. All tickets are $25. Tickets can be purchased at or by calling 517-849-9100 once the theatre reopens. Please note the play contains adult language and material that may not be suitable for younger audiences including frank discussions of male anatomy.
The Sauk, Hillsdale County's community theatre, produces a season of 8 productions. More information about upcoming productions and auditions can be found at
