Schumer bound for Broadway
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.
