Steve Martin's Meteor Shower To Open On Broadway This Fall

Image result for meteor broadway showSteve Martin on Broadway? Count me in theatre fans. Now before you get too excited, I should probably tell you that Steve Martin is not starring in the show. He is simply the playwright. But don't worry, because the cast that he has assembled for his show is top notch. Making her Broadway debut is non other than comedian and Emmy winner Amy Schumer. Now I've been a big Steve Martin fan for years, but let me tell you the big draw for me is because of her.

Trust me. I am not the only one. Joining her in this new comedy are Tony Award winner Laura Benanti (She Loves Me, Gypsy), Alan Tudyk (Spamalot, Prelude To A Kiss), and Keegan-Michael Key (Key & Peele, MADtv), who is also making his Broadway debut. See? I told you they were top notch. But wait. It get's better. Directing the show is four-time Tony Award winner Jerry Zaks (Hello Dolly, A Bronx Tale). I know. I know. So what exactly is the show all about? Here is a brief synopsis about the show from the show's official site.

Meteor Shower is set in Ojai, California, on a hot night. Corky (Schumer) and her husband, Norm (Tudyk), are having another couple over for dinner. However, Gerald (Key) and Laura (Benanti) aren't looking for a casual evening of polite small talk with new friends. Instead, 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.

Sounds like a winner to me. Performances for the show are set to begin at the Booth Theatre on November 1, with opening night scheduled for November 29. By the way for those of you who want tickets to see the show you are in luck. We sell it. In fact we sell tickets to every new play and musical to open this season. Get your tickets to see Meteor Shower on Broadway at the Booth Theatre. Until next time theatre fans.
