Sharr White’s Annapurna starts previews off-Broadway at Theatre Row’s Acorn Theatre on April 13. The husband and wife drama stars real-life couple Nick Offerman (Parks and Recreation) and Megan Mullally (Will & Grace). The two reprise their roles in the New Group's production after starring in the two-person play at the Odyssey Theatre in Los Angeles in April 2013.
Annapurna tells the story of Emma, who walked out on her husband, cowboy-poet Ulysses, 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.
The production will play a limited engagement through June 1. The play is directed by Bart DeLorenzo.
