The design team for Meteor Shower includes Tony Award-winner Beowulf Borritt (Scenic Design), Tony and Academy Award-winner Ann Roth (Costume Design), six-time Tony Award-winner Natasha Katz (Lighting Design), and two-time Drama Desk Award-winner Fitz Patton (Sound Design).

Meteor Shower premiered previous year at the Old Globe Theatre in San Diego, starring Jenna Fischer of The Office and Ally McBeal's Greg Germann in Schumer and Tudyk's roles, and was followed by a four-week co-production at the Long Wharf Theatre in New Haven, Connecticut.

"A meteor shower actually came to me first", Martin told the San Diego Tribune on writing the play. And when I started to think about who everybody is [in the play], that's when it got worthy. Previews begin Wednesday, November 1, 2017 at Broadway's Booth Theatre (222 West 45 Street).

Schumer will also star in a romantic comedy, I Feel Pretty, with Emily Ratajkowksi next year.
