A rush ticket policy for Steve Martin's new Broadway comedy Meteor Shower has been announced. Beginning with the first preview performance on November 1, a limited number of $40 box seat tickets will be available each day when the Booth Theatre box office opens. These tickets, subject to availability, must be purchased on the day of performance and in person at the box office.

Meteor Shower stars Emmy Award winners Amy Schumer and Keegan-Michael Key (both in their Broadway debuts), Tony Award winner Laura Benanti, and Tony Award nominee Jeremy Shamos. Four-time Tony winner Jerry Zaks directs.

The play is described as follows: "It's a hot night in Ojai, California, and Corky (Schumer) and her husband, Norm (Shamos), are having another couple over for dinner. Laura (Benanti) and Gerald (Key), though, 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."

The design team for Meteor Shower includes Beowulf Boritt (scenic design), Ann Roth (costume design), Natasha Katz (lighting design), and Fitz Patton (sound design).
