Other actors and actresses who will join Schumer on Broadway include Keegan-Michael Key who will also be making his Broadway debut and Tony victor Laura Benanti. The show will mark Schumer's and Key's Broadway debuts. Schumer will play one half of one couple alongside Alan Tudyk, and the other couple will be played by Tony victor Laura Benanti (Gypsy) and Keegan-Michael Key of "Key and Peele".

Reviews from the play's earlier iterations have been mixed, but its current director, Jerry Zaks (of Hello, Dolly! acclaim), said that it's in the process of being sharpened into a Broadway-caliber production.

Martin specifically sought Schumer out for the play, and offered her the gig after tracking her down at a house party.

According to production notes: 'Get ready for the unexpected when Norm and his wife Corky invite another couple to their Ojai backyard to watch a meteor shower in the night sky. And then the next thing is, well, who is everybody?

Schumer wrote on Instagram: "I got to do a Steve Martin play in college and have loved him since I saw him as the waiter in the Muppet movie".

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

This play will be Martin's second effort on Broadway to follow his 2016 musical titled, "Bright Star".

Previews begin November 1st with an opening night of November 29th.

"Meteor Shower" has previously been produced at San Diego's Old Globe Theater and New Haven's Long Wharf 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.
