At the end of March, when Gov. Mike Pence brazenly signed the Religious Freedom Restoration Act – despite an outcry of opposition from all over the country – Offerman tweeted that the couple’s May 16 stop at the Old National Centre would be cancelled. Other acts, like rock band Wilco, would also cancel (or threaten to cancel) shows in the Hoosier state in response to RFRA.
According to a recent press release, Offerman and Mullally will perform as schedule. All proceeds from the performance will be donated to the Human Rights Campaign.
The Summer of 69: No Apostrophe Tour features the hilarious couple turning their fiery union into something of a variety show. Using songs, stand-up, and some PDA, the couple pulls back the curtains on comic coupling – hilarity ensues.
Offerman and Mullally both rose to fame with beloved television roles. Offerman portrayed Ron Swanson, the non-nonsense man’s man, on Parks and Recreations. Mullally played the ditzy lush Karen Walker on “Will and Grace,” and has since played some iconically hilarious bit parts on “Children’s Hospital,” “Breaking In” and “30 Rock,” not to mention playing Ron’s on-screen ex-wife, Tammy 2. The two also starred together in “Somebody Up There Like Me” in 2012, and previously worked on stage together in “Annapurna.”
Each have been lauded for their craft. Mullally has for SAG awards and two Emmys, and Offerman has been given two Critics Choice awards.
The two will take the stage at the Murat Theatre at the Old National Centre in Indianapolis at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, May 16. Tickets are $39.50. Visit www.oldnationalcentre.com for more information.
