Steve Martin's new comedy about two married couples who gather to watch a celestial event comes to Broadway starring comedians Amy Schumer and Keegan-Michael Key, Tony winner Laura Benanti, and Jeremy Shamos. More…
It’s a hot night in Ojai, California in 1993, and Corky (Schumer) and her husband Norm (Shamos) are having another couple over for dinner. But Laura (Benanti) and Gerald (Key) aren't looking for a casual evening of polite small talk with new friends. Eventually, the two couples find themselves in a marital free fall matched in velocity and peril only by the smoldering space rocks tearing through the sky. Directed by four-time Tony winner Jerry Zaks.
See it if You like Amy Shumer or Laura Benanati, you like a play that has humor and is entertaining. Amy Shumer was particularly good I thought.
Don't see it if You don't like the kind of story that repeats a story with different outcomes or don't like the actors.
See it if You enjoy a slightly absurd, slightly raunchy, slightly dark comedy with great acting and actor chemistry.
Don't see it if Prefer more serious dramas or prefer a more dry humor. Or are expecting Amy Schumer stand-up type play.
See it if You enjoy Amy Schumer/Laura Benanti and absurdist humor. Felt that Laura was really under-utilized
Don't see it if You don't like raunchy comedies, unrealistic characters, typical Steve Martin writing, big payoff at the end...
See it if You like complex slapstick. This show aligned well with Steve Martin’s quirky comedy style. I laughed the entire 90 minutes!
Don't see it if You’re not into quirky comedy or slapstick but even if you’re not, you may be surprised how much you wind up enjoying this show.
See it if Fan of the actors; they all give great performances particularly Benanti and Key.
Don't see it if you expect a straightforward plot. The structure of the play is a bit confusing.
See it if You need a break, a bowel movement, or have a taste for peach cobbler
Don't see it if You have been scorched by a meteor, had sesame pork for lunch, or have a tendency to use the word bigley
