She’s finally taking her comedy from the streets to the stage. This November, Amy Schumer will make her Broadway debut in Meteor Shower, a comedy by the one and only Steve Martin.
She joins a cast that also includes Keegan-Michael Key, who’s been stealing the show at Hamlet with his theatrics, also in his Broadway debut. They’re joined by Laura Benanti, whose killer Melania Trump impersonation is only a taste of her talents, and Alan Tudyk, who was last in Rogue One. Martin calls it “an impeccable cast,” so yes, you should get tickets ASAP.
Once Schumer’s here in the city, there’s also a very good chance she’ll make a surprise appearance at the Comedy Cellar or other clubs—she’s done it before.
Previews of Meteor Shower will start at the Booth Theatre on November 1 with the opening night on November 29. We’ll be watching the best Inside Amy Schumer sketches on repeat until then.
