  • “IT’S A PLEASURE TO HAVE STEVE MARTIN’S METEOR SHOWER at the Booth Theater, where it opened Wednesday night in a slick production directed by Jerry Zaks and starring Amy Schumer. It’s definitely funny.” The New York Times
  • METEOR SHOWER IS A VERY FUNNY PLAY. Keening-like-a-howler-monkey funny. Design-a-new-cry-laughing-emoji funny.” Entertainment Weekly

    comic timing in this quartet of master practitioners under the assured direction of Zaks, a funny businessman nonpareil…” Deadline 

  • “LAURA BENANTI, KEEGAN MICHAEL-KEY AND JEREMY SHAMOS ARE ALL REALLY FUNNY.” The Wall Street Journal 
  • “AMY SCHUMER’S SIDE-SPLITTINGLY FUNNY IN STEVE MARTIN’S PLAY ABOUT MARITAL  CHAOS.” Newsday
  • “‘Meteor Shower’ is best appreciated as a deliriously nutty 80-minute sketch featuring a starry collaboration of some of our finest comedic talents.” NY1
  • “IT’S AMY SCHUMER WHO WALKS WINSOMELY AWAY WITH METEOR SHOWER. As Corky, the Emmy-winning comedian and icon of off-color feminist hilarity brings a confident, fully committed nuttiness to her Broadway debut. She’s the bubbly, blinking heart of the show.” Vulture 

Meteor Shower is a hilarious new play written by the comedic legend, Steve Martin. Meteor Shower will feature the Broadway debut of film and television mega-star, Amy Schumer, film and television star Keegan-Michael Key (Key & Peele), two-time Tony Award winner Laura Benanti, and film and television star Alan Tudyk (Dodgeball). The show will be directed by multi-Tony and Drama Desk Award Winner Jerry Zaks (current director of the current smash hit, Hello Dolly!).

Meteor Shower follows a woman and her husband (Schumer and Tudyk) who invite over an intense couple (Key and Benanti) to watch a meteor shower in their Ojai, CA yard in 1993 – until things take a turn for the surreal. These friends 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.
