Steve Martin has a new Broadway play in the works called Meteor Shower, and he’s assembled a solid cast of comedic actors. Today it was confirmed that Amy Schumer, Keegan-Michael Key, Laura Benanti, and Alan Tudyk have all joined the cast of Martin’s play, which will be directed by Jerry Zaks and debut at the Booth Theatre in November. Here’s the logline for the play:
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.
Meteor Shower will mark both Schumer and Key’s Broadway debut; Key has also been performing off-Broadway this summer in the Public Theater’s production of Hamlet. Performances for Meteor Shower begin on Wednesday, November 1st, and opening night at the Booth Theatre is set for Wednesday, November 29th.
