A press release describes "Meteor Shower": It's a hot night in Ojai, California, and Corky (Schumer) and her husband Norm (Tudyk) are having another couple over for dinner. The show is shaping to be quite the amalgamation of hilarious personalities: Keegan-Michael Key is one of her costars, as is Laura Benanti (who won a Tony for Gypsy) and Alan Tudyk (Frozen, Wreck-It Ralph).
Meteor Shower will also mark Key's first Broadway production, after previously taking to the stage in the Off-Broadway rendition of Hamlet.
"Meteor Shower" first appeared on stage at San Diego's Old Globe Theatre before landing in CT.
Directed by four-time Tony Award-winner Jerry Zaks, "Meteor Shower" is scheduled to begin previews November 1 at the Booth Theatre on West 45th Street, with opening night set for November 29.
