Meteor Shower is set in Ojai, California, on a hot night. The 36-year-old, who is best known as a stand-up comedian, has landed herself a leading role in the Broadway production of Meteor Shower - a play written by Steven Martin over a 20-year period.

'A meteor shower actually came to me first, ' the actor, 71, said. "I liked the idea of it-I liked the idea of a couple going to watch a meteor shower".




'And then the next thing is, well, who is everybody? "Because I had a psychological interpretation of who everybody was, and that gave me something to write from".

Meteor Shower is slated to run for 12 weeks. Previews begin Wednesday, November 1, 2017 at Broadway's Booth Theatre (222 West 45 Street).

"I can't tell you how excited I am", Steve told the New York Times.

Meanwhile, Amy is now shooting a new comedy called "I Feel Pretty", having also completed work on "She Came to Me" starring Nicole Kidman and Steve Carell and the military biopic "Thank You for Your Service".

As a result, Renee believes she's drop dead gorgeous, and she even gets promoted at work because of her newfound self-confidence.
