Written by the ever-funny Steve Martin, Meteor Shower shows us two couples engaging in the all-too-familiar evening of wine and hors-d’oeuvres, with a twist. The visiting couple (Laura Benanti, Keegan-Michael Key) seem to only be focused on subtly (and at times not-so-subtly) undermining the relationship of the hosts (Amy Schumer, Jeremy Shamos). The result is pure hilarity with super engaging scenes that manipulate time and sometimes reverse, stop or restart at different points. Schumer and Shamos are particularly captivating in their portrayal of characters trying their very hardest to hold it together. Meteor Shower is at the Booth Theatre until January 21, 2018.
