The Old Globe today announced further news about its 2016 Summer Season, which will feature new and familiar works directed by four major American stalwarts. Due to popular demand, an additional week has been added for the welcome return of Steve Martin (Bright Star) with the world premiere of his new play Meteor Shower, an adult comedy. It will be directed by Gordon Edelstein, in a co-production with Long Wharf Theatre, where Edelstein serves as Artistic Director (and no, they are not related). Meteor Shower will now play July 30 – September 11, 2016, with opening night on August 7, in the Sheryl and Harvey White Theatre, part of the Conrad Prebys Theatre Center. Tickets are currently available by subscription only. Single tickets begin at $29 and will go on sale to the general public on Friday, June 24 at 12:00 noon.
