VIDEO: Schumer, Key, Benanti, and Shamos Celebrate 'Meteor Shower' Opening Night on Broadway


Last night, Tony Award-nominated playwright and comedy-world icon Steve Martin’s new play Meteor Shower, celebrated its official opening on Broadway, at the Booth Theatre (222 West 45th Street). Tickets are available at

Meteor Shower stars Emmy Award winners Amy Schumer and Keegan-Michael Key, both in their Broadway debut, Tony Award winner Laura Benanti, Tony Award nominee Jeremy Shamos, and is directed by four-time Tony Award winner Jerry Zaks.

Meteor Shower is set on a hot night in Ojai, California, and Corky (Schumer) and her husband Norm (Shamos) are having another couple over to their home. 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.

The design team for Meteor Shower includes Tony Award winner Beowulf Boritt (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 Caparelliotis Casting.
