In Conversation with Steve Martin

Summary

The two will discuss the world premiere of Meteor Shower, Steve Martin’s welcome return following the great success of Bright Star, and the writer’s work in and thoughts about the theatre. This sure-to-be-intriguing chat between Erna Finci Viterbi Artistic Director Barry Edelstein and playwright/renaissance man Steve Martin, will be held in conjunction with the world premiere of Martin’s new play Meteor Shower, an adult comedy. Meteor Shower marks his welcome return to the Globe following the great success of Bright Star, and continuing his exciting and fruitful relationship with The Old Globe.

Martin and Edie Brickell’s musical Bright Star premiered at the Globe in 2014, played a limited engagement at The Kennedy Center, and received acclaim in its Broadway run at the Cort Theatre. In addition to five Tony Award nominations, Bright Star received Outstanding New Broadway Musical and Outstanding New Score at the Outer Critics Circle Awards. And next February, as part of the 2016-2017 Season, the Globe will mount a production of Martin’s international hit comedy Picasso at the Lapin Agile, directed by the Globe’s very own Barry Edelstein.
