Alicia Keys to Try Her Hand At Producing on Broadway


R&B singer Alicia Keys has reportedly decided to follow the lead of Jay-Z and Will Smith in following a popular music career with a foray into producing a Broadway play.  According to reports, Keys will co-produce a musical called "Stick Fly" this fall.  She will be working with acclaimed playwright Lydia R. Diamond on the musical, which has been described as a contemporary comedy of manners revolving around an affluent black family whose insecurities gradually reveal themselves during a vacation to Martha's Vineyard.

 

"I'm passionate about this play because it is so beautifully written and portrays black America in a way that we don't often get to see in entertainment," Keys said in a statement. "I know it will touch all audiences who will find a piece of themselves somewhere inside this house."

 

"Stick Fly" has been performed in Boston, Chicago, and Washington D.C., and will begin its Broadway run at the Lyceum Theatre on November 18th, before officially opening on December 8th.  Tony Award winning Kenny Leon will direct the play.
