A local "Hollywood" stage production is going to Broadway. Annapurna by Sharr White, which enjoyed a critically acclaimed, sold-out run this spring at West L.A.’s Odyssey Theatre Ensemble, will open Off Broadway as part of the New Group’s 2013-14 season with its L.A. cast and director intact.
Real-life married couple Megan Mullally (Will and Grace) and Nick Offerman (Parks and Recreation) will reprise the roles they created at the Odyssey in White’s two-hander about love and loss. Bart DeLorenzo will again direct.
In its review of the Odyssey production, the Los Angeles Times wrote, “from White’s poignant script to Bart DeLorenzo’s faultless direction to Megan Mullally and Nick Offerman’s beautifully centered performances, ‘Annapurna’ is a lovely theatrical construct from the ground up.”
