Art imitates life! Tickets are now on sale for the New York premiere of Sharr White’s drama Annapurna, starring real-life couple Nick Offerman (Parks and Recreation) and Megan Mullally (Will & Grace). Directed by Bart DeLorenzo, the New Group production will begin performances April 13 off-Broadway. The show is slated to play a limited engagement at Theatre Row's Acorn Theatre through June 1.
Offerman and Mullally 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 currently plays Ron Swanson on Parks and Recreation, and his film and TV credits include Axe Cop, 21 Jump Street, Childrens Hospital, We’re the Millers and Sin City. Annapurna marks his off-Broadway debut.
