Megan Mullally and Nick Offerman Co-Star in Sharr White's Annapurna Off-Broadway Beginning April 13
13 Apr 2014
Emmy Award winner Megan Mullally and her husband Nick Offerman co-star as estranged lovers in the New York premiere of Sharr White's Annapurna, which begins performances April 13 at the Acorn Theatre on Theatre Row.
Bart DeLorenzo stages the production for the New Group that will officially open April 21. It will run through June 1. White is also the playwright of The Other Place and the recent Broadway drama The Snow Geese.
Mullally ("Will & Grace," Young Frankenstein, How to Succeed...) and Offerman ("Parks and Recreation") also starred in a Los Angeles run of Annapurna at the Odyssey Theatre last spring. White's play had its world premiere at San Francisco's Magic Theatre in 2011.
Here's how it's 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 production has scenic design by Thomas A. Walsh, costume design by Ann Closs-Farley, lighting design by Michael Gend and sound design by John Ballinger.
Featuring the Broadway classics “To Life (L’Chaim!),” “If I Were A Rich Man,” “Sunrise Sunset,” “Matchmaker, Matchmaker,” and “Tradition,” Fiddler on the Roof will introduce a new generation to this uplifting celebration that raises its cup to joy! To love! To life!
