Husband-and-wife actors Nick Offerman (Parks and Recreation) and Megan Mullally (Will & Grace) will star in the New York premiere of Sharr White's Annapurna, a newly announced production of off-Broadway's The New Group at Theatre Row. The production will run from April 13-June 1 at the Acorn Theatre.

Directed by Bart DeLorenzo, Annapurna is a two-character drama that follows Ulysses (Offerman), a dying poet living in the Colorado wilderness, who is visited by Emma (Mullally), the wife who walked out with their son 20 years earlier. They reprise the roles that they played at the Odyssey Theatre in Los Angeles earlier this year.

Mullally has been seen on Broadway in Young Frankenstein, How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, and Grease. Offerman, a veteran of theater companies in Chicago and Los Angeles, makes his New York stage debut. The pair has acted together before on the popular NBC series Parks and Recreation; she plays Tammy Two, the ex-wife to his Ronald Ulysses Swanson.
