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.
