Alicia Keys is headed to Broadway! The R&B veteran has signed on to serve as a producer for the Lydia R. Diamond play ‘Stick Fly.’
“I’m so 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 says in a statement. “I know it will touch all audiences who will find a piece of themselves somewhere inside this house.”
The show is a contemporary comedy, which tells the story of a well-to-do black family on vacation in Martha’s Vineyard. The insecurities of each character gradually come to light throughout the course of the show.
The production will open at the Lyceum Theater on 45th street December 8th.. It will begin initial performances November 18th.
