Martin comedy comes to Tampa in September!
Martin’s Meteor Shower teaser
Jobsite begins their 21st season, themed a great reckoning
in a little room, in Sep. with ‘wild and crazy guy’ Steve
Martin’s hilarious new comedy that takes an offbeat and absurdist
look at the comic anxiety lurking just beneath the surface of
modern marriage. Meteor Shower runs Sep. 6-29,
2019, in the Shimberg Playhouse at the Straz Center,
where Jobsite is resident theater company.
“Mr. Martin is peerless at crafting tiny wit bombs, and always
has been […] It’s definitely funny!”
– The New York Times
and Norm are excited to host Gerald and Laura at their home
in the valley outside Los Angeles to watch a once-in-a-lifetime
meteor shower. But as the stars come out and the conversation
gets rolling, it becomes clear that Gerald and Laura might not
be all that they appear to be. Over the course of a crazy, starlit
dinner party, the wildly unexpected occurs. The couples begin
to flirt and insanity reigns. Martin, using his trademark absurdist
humor, bends the fluid nature of time and reality to create
a surprising and unforgettably funny new play.
Meteor Shower is directed by Jobsite Artistic
Associate Paul J. Potenza (A Skull in Connemara,
The Lonesome West) who leads the artistic team of Brian
Smallheer (scenic design), Jo Averill-Snell (light
design), and Katrina Stevenson (costume design). The
show stars Jonelle M. Meyer, Amy E. Gray, Jamie
Jones, and Jordan Foote.
“Meteor Shower is a very funny play. Keening-like-a-howler-monkey
funny. Design-a-new-cry-laughing-emoji funny” – Entertainment
Broadway fans no doubt recall the record-setting 2017 production
starring Amy Schumer, Laura Benanti, Keegan-Michael Key, and
Jeremy Shamos. The original production in 2016 at the Old Globe
