Just when I thought Alicia Keys has done enough for the music industry, she impresses me yet again. I fell in love with her album Elements of Freedom, and was so happy to find out about her pregnancy. Luckily, I can keep rooting for Keys as she makes her way to Broadway.
According to NYMag.com, the singer and actress has been busy producing the November debut of the play Stick Fly, written by Lydia R. Diamond.
Stick Fly is a story about a wealthy black family that stars Dule Hill and Mekhi Phifer, and Ms. Keys also announced that she would be composing new music for the play. If her production skills are anything like her musical talents, there is simply nothing to worry about.
“I’m passionate about this play because it is so beautifully written and portrays Black America in a way that we don’t often see in entertainment,” said Keys in a statement, as reported by USA Today.
Keys follows a line-up of celebrities who have graced their production capabilities on Broadway, including Jay-Z and Elton John.
