Steve Martin

For once it’s nice to have a comedy back on Broadway and especially a comedy written by Steve Martin, starring Amy Schumer. It’s called, for some inexplicable reason, "Meteor Shower" and it opened at the Booth on Shubert Alley the other night. Frankly, just call it 80 minutes of nonsensical fun, and who can’t like that in this era of harassment and rockets.

Bright Star a new musical opened the other night at the smallish Cort Theater. Odd thing, at least to me, this little musical with a big heart and featuring lots of what one can call blue grass music (with as the producers say “a touch of rock”) is really quite good and that music and lyrics by Edie Brickell, which I thought I would hate, is terrific, just plain terrific.
