Meteor Shower To Open Tonight On Broadway

Image result for meteor shower broadway logoWhen I first moved to New York City all I wanted to see were  e musicals. Oh sure if I got a free ticket to see a play I would go. After all a free ticket is a free ticket. However in the last ten years or so, I would rather see a play than some splashy Broadway musical. My how times change right? Now the one show that I am really looking forward to seeing this season is Meteor Shower. Which is the reason for today's blog.

The show, which is written by Steve Martin, officially opens tonight at the Booth Theatre. Making her Broadway debut along side Tony winner Laura Benanti, Tony nominee Jeremy Shamos, and Emmy winner Keegan-Michael Key, who is also making his Broadway debut, is Emmy winner Amy Schumer. Now that's what I call a first rate cast. So what's the show all about? Well I'll tell you.

Meteor Shower is set in Ojai, California, on a hot night. Corky (Schumer) and her husband, Norm (Shamos), 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.

Well I'm sold. Oh and if that wasn't enough to entice you, the show is being directed by four-time Tony Award Jerry Zaks. Who by the way has two other shows running on Broadway. Hello Dolly! and A Bronx Tale. Not bad huh? By the way for those of you who want tickets to see the show, you are in luck. We sell it. Well that and every other show both On and Off-Broadway. Get your tickets to see Meteor Shower on Broadway at the Booth Theatre. Who knows? You just might see me there. Until next time theatre fans.
