Amy Schumer will make her Broadway debut this fall in STEVE MARTIN’S NEW COMEDY “METEOR SHOWER.”
Besides Schumer, the cast will feature KEEGAN-MICHAEL KEY,LAURA BENANTI
and ALAN TUDYK.
DIRECTED BY JERRY ZAKS, previews will begin November 1 at the Booth Theater, and the comedy will open November 29.
From the press release: It’s a hot night in Ojai, California, and Corky (Schumer) and her husband Norm (Tudyk) are having another couple over for dinner. Laura (Benanti) and Gerald (Key), though, aren’t looking for a casual evening of polite small talk with new friends. Eventually, the two couples find themselves in a marital free-fall matched in velocity and peril only by the smoldering space rocks tearing through the sky. Entertaining has never been more entertaining than in this “cosmic comedy from the master of the American absurd” (Variety).
The design team for Meteor Shower includes Tony Award-winner Beowulf Borritt (Scenic Design), Tony and Academy Award-winner Ann Roth (Costume Design), six-time Tony Award-winner Natasha Katz (Lighting Design), and two-time Drama Desk Award-winner Fitz Patton (Sound Design). Casting is by David Caparelliotis.
Tickets are currently on sale, and can be purchased via Telecharge.com or by visiting MeteorOnBroadway.com.
Meteor Shower had its world premiere at San Diego’s Old Globe Theatre, and had a subsequent production at the Long Wharf Theatre in New Haven, CT.
Meteor Shower is produced on Broadway by Joey Parnes, Sue Wagner, and John Johnson.
