Grammy award winning starlet Alicia Keys already has singer/songwriter, producer, actress, and director on her resume, and recent reports have indicated it’s now expanded to Broadway. The play ‘Stick Fly’, produced by Keys and playwright Lydia Diamond and featuring actor Mekhi Phifer, is set for a December 8 opening on Broadway, with limited previews at the Cort Theatre starting November 18.
Speaking on the play, Keys stated:
“It’s honestly been a dream come true. I love the humor and humanity of Stick Fly, and I’m so excited to be a part of the emotional journey this show will take audiences on.”
Beforehand, the ‘Superwoman’ songstress was spotted with the cast & crew at a photo call at Hard Rock Cafe in New York City’s Times Square. See them below:
I am very proud of Ms. Alicia Keys. I purchased my tickets and I will be ready to enjoy and experience Broadway.
She looks beautiful. Wish I was there to her Broadway show.
She is an amazing woman and she looks so beautiful here. I know this show will be a hit like everything else she is involved with. Would love to see the show but it’s just a bit too far away for me.
THIS KID TRIES TOO HARD. SHE’S HERE AND THERE, JACK OF ALL TRADES BUT WHEN IT COMES DOWN TO IT, IT’S A #FLOPPP!!!! NO ONE IS GONNA WATCH THIS S*** FOR REALZ!! WHAT A LAME PLAY… AS FOR MEKHI PHIFER, THE LAST GOOD PROJECT HE DID WAS 8 MILE WITH EMINEM ALMOST A DECADE AGO, DAYUMMM. NOW HE’S DOING A CHEAP ASS BROADWAY PLAY. WORK MUST BE TOUGH TO COME BY FOR MINORITY ACTORS. TRUTH!!!
N**** please! Alicia is the truth, and you know it!
How many black woman in Hollywood is doing what Alicia is doing??? NONE!
She directed a critically acclaimed short film, she is the founder of one of the most respected charity organizations (KeepaChildAlive), and she is still killing it music wise!
Plus, she is now taking over Broadway
If you wanna talk about flopping, i politely refer you back to BEYONCE. Not even her name could push her new album passed the 1 million mark (the album was certified platinum yes, but it hasn’t sold a million yet)
Alicia is the Hottest and most talented chick in R&B. She’s the BOSS!
I agree Queen Alicia is the best she is Always thinking outside the box with so many thing she is so respected in the entertainment business that even BROADWAY wants her.
I’m not going to down play any other artist but Alicia Keys is my idol forever Love you Alicia.
Alicia is the business. As for the idiot Judas clearly a child and clueless about this womans Iconic status. The plays will sell out, just like her last 6 concerts that sold out in minutes and she doesn’t even have an album out. Get a grip. Kudos to Alicia on all that she is doing.
Get a grip. Don’t you know, nothing this lady does is a flop? Yes she’s everywhere doing everything and she is brilliant at everything she does. As far as trying too hard, that is just ridiculous. That’s why everyone wants her involved with their projects because she does try so hard. She can’t help the fact that she is good at everything she does. Never stop trying (too) hard. Think about it.
Some people will think the title is a insult to the lower class financial Once I herd what the story was dealing with and living in a bad economy not a good title. Even though it may be a good play many will never enter the door even if it gets to tumbs up on review. My name is Eric Lamont thomas I deal with common sense you must remember all avenues. Now you choose Eric friend or foe?
