Description:

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. As the stars come out and the conversation gets rolling, cocktails flow, tempers flare, and sparks fly—literally. Steve Martin’s surprising new comedy takes an offbeat and absurdist look at the comic anxiety lurking just beneath the surface of modern marriage.

The welcome return of Steve Martin (Bright Star, now at the Kennedy Center, Broadway next spring) with the Globe debut of director Gordon Edelstein, in a co-production with Long Wharf Theatre, where he serves as Artistic Director.

Meteor Shower features Jenna Fischer (Emmy Award nominee as Pam Beesly on “The Office,” Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story with John C. Reilly, Reasons to Be Happy Off Broadway) as Corky, Greg Germann (SAG Award winner for “Ally McBeal,” “Once Upon a Time,” Broadway’s Boeing-Boeing, original production of Assassins) as Norm, Alex Henrikson (Fish in the Dark and The Snow Geese on Broadway, Helen Hayes Award nominee for Ironbound, “Funny Or Die”) as Laura, and Josh Stamberg (series regular on “The Affair,” “Parenthood,” and “Drop Dead Diva,” Off Broadway’s Distracted) as Gerald.

The creative team is comprised of Michael Yeargan (Scenic Design), Jess Goldstein (Costume Design), Donald Holder (Lighting Design), John Gromada (Original Music and Sound Design), Caparelliotis Casting (Casting), Kathy Snyder (Production Stage Manager), and Annette Elena Nixon (Stage Manager).
