“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 spreading the reach and "cred" of Los Angeles to the Big Apple. As part of the New Group’s 2013-14 season the transfer will include its L.A. cast and director intact.
Popular 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.”
“Annapurna” will run April 13-June 1, 2014 at the Acorn Theater on New York’s Theater Row. For more information about the Odyssey Theatre, call 310-477-2055 or go to www.OdysseyTheatre.com. Sounds like New York audiences are in for a fine evening of theater L.A. style.
