TV's most adorable couple, Parks and Recreation star Nick Offerman and Will & Grace favorite Megan Mullally, are heading to New York together! Offerman will make his off-Broadway debut alongside his real-life wife in the New York premiere of Sharr White’s drama Annapurna. Directed by Bart DeLorenzo, the New Group production will begin performances April 13 at off-Broadway’s Acorn Theatre on Theatre Row. It is slated to play a limited engagement through June 1.
Mullally and Offerman will reprise their roles in the new play after starring in the two-person drama at the Odyssey Theatre in Los Angeles in April 2013. The production tells the story of Emma (Mullally), who walked out on her husband, cowboy-poet Ulysses (Offerman) in the middle of the night. Now hearing he’s in dire straits, she tracks him down in the wilds of Colorado in a grungy trailer, working on his magnum opus, hooked up to an oxygen tank and cooking in the buff. Their reunion, charged by rage and compassion, brings back the best and worst of their former bond.
Mullally last appeared on Broadway in Young Frankenstein. Her additional Broadway credits include Grease and How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying. Perhaps best known as Karen on Will & Grace, her other film and TV credits include Childrens Hospital, Bee Movie, The Kings of Summer and Bob’s Burgers.
Offerman is making his off-Broadway debut in Annapurna. In addition to his turn as Ron Swanson on Parks and Recreation, his film and TV credits include Axe Cop, 21 Jump Street, Childrens Hospital, We’re the Millers and Sin City.
This isn’t the first time Mullally and Offerman have played spouses—the actress regularly appears as Ron Swanson’s ex-wife Tammy on TV’s Parks and Recreation.
