Photo Flash: First Look at Steve Martin's METEOR SHOWER, Starring Jenna Fischer at The Old Globe

The Old Globe presents the world premiere run of Steve Martin's new play Meteor Shower, running now through September 18, 2016, with opening night on August 7. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!

Meteor Shower, an adult comedy, marks Martin's welcome return to the Globe following the great success of Bright Star. It will be directed by Gordon Edelstein in a co-production with Long Wharf Theatre, where Edelstein serves as Artistic Director (and no, he is not related to Barry).

Get ready for the unexpected when Norm and his wife Corky invite another couple to their Ojai backyard to watch a Meteor Shower in the night sky. As the stars come out and the conversation gets rolling, cocktails flow, tempers flare, and sparks fly-literally. Steve Martin's surprising new comedy takes an offbeat and absurdist look at the comic anxiety lurking just beneath the surface of modern marriage.

Meteor Shower features Jenna Fischer (Emmy Award nominee as Pam Beesly on "The Office," Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story with John C. Reilly, Reasons to Be Happy Off Broadway) as Corky, Greg Germann (SAG Award winner for "Ally McBeal," "Once Upon a Time," Broadway's Boeing-Boeing, original production of Assassins) as Norm, Alexandra Henrikson (Fish in the Dark and The Snow Geese on Broadway, Helen Hayes Award nominee forIronbound, "Funny Or Die") as Laura, and Josh Stamberg (series regular on "The Affair," "Parenthood," and "Drop Dead Diva," Off Broadway's Distracted) as Gerald.

The creative team is comprised of Michael Yeargan (Scenic Design), Jess Goldstein (Costume Design), Donald Holder (Lighting Design), John Gromada (Original Music and Sound Design),Caparelliotis Casting (Casting), Kathy Snyder (Production Stage Manager), and Annette Elena Nixon (Stage Manager).Meteor Shower runs in the Sheryl and Harvey White Theatre, part of the Conrad Prebys Theatre Center.
