92Y to Live Stream Chat With Megan Mullally, Nick Offerman and Sharr White
03 Apr 2014
Emmy Award winner Megan Mullally and her husband Nick Offerman, who are set to co-star in the Off-Broadway production of Sharr White's Annapurna, will appear at the 92Y on April 7 to discuss the upcoming production.
Beginning at 8:15 PM, Mullally and Offerman will join playwright White to discuss the new play that centers on the reunion of an estranged couple. According to the 92Y, Mullally and Offerman will also discuss "staying together, onstage and off."
Here's how the play is billed: "Twenty years ago, Emma (Mullally) 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 to an oxygen tank, and cooking in the buff. Their reunion, charged by rage and compassion, brings back the worst and best of their former bond."
The New Group presents Annapurna, which will begin performances April 13 at the Acorn Theatre under the direction of Bart DeLorenzo.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
