The unusually frigid winter now hitting New York City has made its way to Broadway, as stars of Steve Martin’s new comedy Meteor Shower have been struck by winter weather illnesses, resulting in the cancellation of Sunday afternoon’s performance.
Both Amy Schumer and Laura Benanti are currently home sick. In a statement, producer Joey Parnes said, “We’re really sorry for the disappointment and inconvenience today’s audience will experience, and we look forward to welcoming back Amy and Laura next week.”
The show will resume regular performances as scheduled, Tuesday, January 9. Ticket buyers should contact their point of purchase for exchanges and refunds.
Meteor Shower stars Emmy Award winners Amy Schumer and Keegan-Michael Key, both in their Broadway debut, Tony Award winner Laura Benanti, and Tony Award nominee Jeremy Shamos are directed by four-time Tony Award winner Jerry Zaks.
Meteor Shower plays until Sunday, January 21st, at the Booth Theatre.
