Nick Offerman & Megan Mullally: Why Working Together Works for Us

Nick Offerman & Megan Mullally: Why Working Together Works for Us

Originally posted 04/26/2014 05:15PM

They're no Ron and Tammy 2, but Nick Offerman and Megan Mullally's characters in their new Off-Broadway play, Annapurna, are full of complicated feelings.

The real-life couple play Ulysses (Offerman) and ex-wife Emma (Mullally); he's preparing for the end of his life just as she tracks him down, and they fall quickly back into the rhythm of dialogue that only an actual couple could replicate. Intensity builds throughout the play, leaving many audience members in tears as the lights come back up.

"Being a person who is mostly known for comedy, I've never had the experience of people audibly weeping at the end of our show," Mullally, 55, tells PEOPLE. "It's really kind of great. I don't want to upset anyone, but it's great that the show is effective enough to bring out emotions."

After bidding a bittersweet goodbye to Rashida Jones and Rob Lowe, Parks and Recreation returns Thursday with plenty of Pawnee action. Though Ann and Chris are gone, there's now room for other characters to take the spotlight – and we're hoping Retta's Donna Meagle gets more time to shine.

Speaking to PEOPLE, Retta revealed she's pushing for love. Donna has enjoyed a wild dating life, but Retta thinks it's time for a real relationship.

"I want there to be a romantic interest in her future, and I keep bringing it up to our executive producer," Retta says. "I've kind of put it in his brain, and I believe that he shall hook a sister up, as they say."

Just months before his 50th birthday, Killing Kennedy star Rob Lowe is experiencing a career renaissance – but he is most excited about his life as a family man.

"My work life is so chaotic and we live in Santa Barbara so it is a very long drive but I'm home every night and I wake up in a beautiful area with my family," Lowe tells PEOPLE. "Sometimes on days off I don't even leave the property."

And although the past few months has been a busy time for the Parks and Recreation star, he is taking extra care to savor his last few months with his youngest son, John Owen, 18, before he goes off to college, following in the footsteps of his brother Matthew, 20, who is in his second year at Duke University.

"They are both so academically advanced," says the proud papa. "They have also been a handful at times but I wouldn't have it any other way. In fact, if they had not been I would have worried where my DNA was!"
