Stand-up comedian Amy Schumer is no stranger to the stage, but Broadway is a whole other animal.

Come November, Schumer will be starring in Steve Martin's play, Meteor Shower, alongside fellow comedian Keegan-Michael Key, Nashville actress and Tony winner Laura Benanti and Firefly's Alan Tudyk.

The play -- which was written by Martin and will be directed by four-time Tony winner Jerry Zaks -- will be both Schumer and Key's first times on Broadway. The production is set during a hot night in Ojai, California, at the home of Corky (Schumer) and her husband, Norm (Tudyk). They invite their couple friends Laura (Benanti) and Gerald (Key) over for dinner, but the evening quickly turns chaotic when a meteor shower begins.

Schumer was excited to share news of her Broadway debut with her Instagram followers, writing: "Steve Martin wrote a hilarious play @MeteorShowerBwy and I get to do it with @keeganmic @laurabenanti @alantudyk."

Previews begin for Meteor Shower on Nov. 1 at the Booth Theatre and opening night will take place on Nov. 29. The play is to have a 12-week run.

While Schumer is set to star on Broadway, her pal, Jennifer Lawrence, recently made headlines for getting sick at a play. The Oscar winner fell ill while watching Olivia Wilde in the Broadway production of 1984.

Lawrence and Schumer are set to star in a movie they wrote together, and Woody Harrelson recently spoke to ET about the possibility of him landing a role in the highly anticipated comedy. Here's what he had to say:
