Amy Schumer Will Make Her Broadway Debut

Amy Schumer Will Make Her Broadway Debut

In "Meteor Shower", Tudyk and Schumer will play a married couple, who has another married couple (Laura and Gerald) over for dinner.

Amy will appear alongside the likes of Gypsy's Laura Benanti, Firefly's Alan Tudyk and Key & Peele's Keegan-Michael Key. Schumer and Key will be making their Broadway debuts.

Despite the highly anticipated Netflix special Amy Schumer: The Leather Special receiving mixed reviews, Amy has not let this affect her as she responded to the backlash on Instagram, claiming that hundreds of alt-right trolls are behind all the negative reviews.

The Trainwreck actress wrote: '#SteveMartin wrote a hilarious play @MeteorShowerBwy and I get to do it with @keeganmic @laurabenanti @alantudyk'.

Rumors revolving around Martin courting both Schumer and Benanti to star in Meteor Shower began circulating in early June when all that was known about the play's Broadway run was that Hello, Dolly!'s Jerry Zaks was attached to direct.

'As the stars come out and the conversation gets rolling, cocktails flow, tempers flare, and sparks fly - literally'. Martin tweeted praise for Meteor Shower's "impeccable cast" before joking: "Just think, we can all love each other until the first day of rehearsal!" "I liked the idea of it-I liked the idea of a couple going to watch a meteor shower".

'Because I had a psychological interpretation of who everybody was, and that gave me something to write from'.

The play had its world premiere in San Diego past year at the Old Globe theater, where the cast included The Office's Jenna Fischer, along with Greg Germann, Josh Stamberg, and Alex Henrikson.

Meteor Shower is slated to run for 12 weeks. It is set for November 29 to officially open at Booth Theater. She also will star in and produce the comedy feature "I Feel Pretty", and plays a supporting role in DreamWorks' upcoming PTSD drama "Thank You for Your Service", the directorial debut of "American Sniper" screenwriter Jason Hall.

The star-studded also cast includes Emily Ratajkowski, Michelle Williams, and Rafe Spall.
