Schumer bound for Broad­way

Los Angeles Times - - CALENDAR - — Emily Mae Cza­chor

What do you do when your wacky stage play is bor­der­ing on crit­i­cal catas­tro­phe? Nab Hol­ly­wood’s fa­vorite train wreck and ask her to headline, of course.

At least that was Steve Martin’s stop­gap so­lu­tion now that his new­est play, “Me­teor Shower” — whose ear­lier pro­duc­tions re­ceived mixed re­views — is headed for Broad­way. And reign­ing com­edy queen Amy Schumer is go­ing with it.

Schumer will make her Broad­way de­but in Martin’s four-per­son pro­duc­tion, which moves to the big leagues in Novem­ber. “Me­teor Shower” chron­i­cles one bizarre 1993 evening watch­ing a me­teor shower in Ojai.

“Me­teor Shower” opens its Broad­way stint with previews start­ing Nov. 1, ahead of its Nov. 29 open­ing at Man­hat­tan’s Booth Theater.
