Alicia Keys to Compose Music for Broadway Show

Diana Levine for AOL

After celebrating the 10th anniversary of her now-iconic ‘Songs in A Minor’ debut with a historic Live Sessions performance at the Beacon Theatre, Alicia Keys is hitting another kind of stage — the Broadway stage, as both producer and composer of the upcoming Broadway show ‘Stick Fly.’

While news broke that Ms. Keys would add show producer to her impressive resume over the summer, it was just announced (Oct. 4) that Alicia is also set to score the Lydia R. Diamond drama.

The play, about a well-to-do black family on Martha’s Vineyard, will begin rehearsals later this month and a representative for the production commented that “exact placement of the music within the production is still being worked on,” but that audiences “should expect original music in the style of Alicia Keys that is used to help propel Lydia’s story along.”

The New York-born singer-songwriter was overjoyed about the project admitting, “As someone who walked up and down this boulevard [Broadway] as a young girl, I cannot describe the thrill of having the opportunity of composing songs for a Broadway show.” Talk about an ‘Empire State of Mind‘!

“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,” Alicia added.

‘Stick Fly,’ is scheduled to begin previews at the Cort Theater on Nov. 18 and open on Dec. 8.
