Alicia Keys Heads To Broadway

Since releasing her debut, Songs in A Minor, 10 years ago, Alicia Keys has achieved plenty of landmarks in her life: two armloads of Grammys, a successful movie career and, recently, motherhood.

But the “Fallin’ ” singer is still pushing into new territory with her latest project, co-producing the Broadway premiere of the play “Stick Fly.” The critically acclaimed work by Lydia R. Diamond will open on Broadway at the Lyceum Theatre in December, with previews beginning on November 18.

“This is a story that everybody can relate to,” said Keys in a statement announcing her participation in the venture. “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. I know it will touch all audiences, who will find a piece of themselves somewhere inside this house.”
