With titles like singer, songwriter, wife and mother already under her belt … Alicia Keys can now add “Broadway Producer” to her slew of names.
According to reports, Mrs. Swizz Beatz will take on the role of producer to Lydia R Diamond’s comedy Stick Fly as it “portrays black America in a way that we don’t often get to see in entertainment.”
“This is a story that everybody can relate to. I know it will touch all audiences who will find a piece of themselves somewhere inside this house,” 30-year-old Alicia said.
Stick Fly has already been performed in Chicago, Washington, D.C. and Boston in recent years … and Alicia’s version is said to be previewed at the Lyceum Theatre on Broadway on 18 November, with the shows debut to follow in December.
This just may be a good career direction for Alicia as fellow artists such as Sir Elton John, Will Smith, Jay Z and Jada Pinkett Smith have all had Broadway success with their productions.
