Amy Schumer is one of the hottest draws in comedy, so it's no surprise comedy legend Steve Martin is close to signing the star as a lead in a new Broadway production "Meteor Shower".
We hear Martin personally reached out to Schumer for this role, and her partner in the production will be Laura Benanti, who has successfully spoofed Melania Trump for Stephen Colbert.
Jerry Zaks, who staged the smash revival of “Hello, Dolly!” with Bette Midler, will direct. The producer is Joey Parnes, whose credits include “Dolly,” “A Gentleman’s Guide to Love & Murder” and “Bright Star,” the Tony-nominated bluegrass musical Martin wrote with Edie Brickell.
Here's another twist- the play features a housewife that is into cannibalism!
