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."

Meet the four new hot chicks on the music scene.

For Thursday's Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, the talk-show host and his editor Chris Tartaro teamed up with Blake Shelton and Parks & Recreation's Nick Offerman to perform the Lumineers' hit song "Ho Hey" – with a twist. (Watch below.)

Clad in yellow chicken suits and calling themselves "The Chickeneers," the big birds let the feathers fly as they clucked and squawked along. Before you try to roast them, keep in mind they performed in perfect harmony. Clearly they were cooped up beforehand to rehearse and didn't just wing it.

In true A-List fashion, Jessica Alba makes walking the red carpet look like a walk in the park.

But when she wants the real deal, she has a more low-key go-to: the Franklin Canyon Park in Los Angeles.

Alba, 30, is among the famous faces teaming up with the Sierra Club to celebrate the great outdoors in a video honoring Earth Day, which is April 22 (check out sierraclub.org/earthday for more).

Is Zach Galifianakis Trying to Steal Ron Swanson's Swag? | Zach Galifianakis

Zach Galifianakis and Nick Offerman: Separated at Birth?

A penchant for patterned sweaters, a mustache that toes the line between handsome and handlebar, and chest hair thick enough to combat wintry temps: Zach Galifianakis's newest character looks undeniably like another macho man.

Best known for his role as petulant Ron Swanson on NBC's Parks and Recreation, Nick Offerman's unique brand of anti-trend manliness seems to have rubbed off on Galifianakis, who debuted a similar look Tuesday on the New Orleans set of his as-yet-untitled comedy.

Treating himself to some Sun Chips, funnyman Galifianakis enjoyed a fruit smoothie while tooling around town in pleated denim slacks – his smartphone at the ready in a handy hip holster.
