Alicia Keys Raises the Curtain on Broadway Play

Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz

Alicia Keys expanded her empire by presenting her first play on Broadway last night. The Grammy-winning singer, who serves as producer and music composer, was beaming with pride as she celebrated opening night for Stick Fly at Cort Theatre in New York City.

She was joined by her husband Swizz Beatz, cast members, and celebrities including Spike Lee, Gayle King, Taraji P. Henson, and Tracee Ellis Ross at the premiere and after-party.

The play is centered around an affluent African-American family who gathers at their summer home in Martha’s Vineyard. But a relaxing weekend takes an unexpected turn when two sons bring their girlfriends home to meet their parents for the first time.

“It’s about the human experience, so it doesn’t matter how you look, where you’re from, where you grew up,” explained Alicia of the family-geared production. “Life is hilarious, life is serious, life is outrageous, and that’s what this play is.”

    @No Love, while you are wasting your time with your memories of those you don’t know and don’t know that you exist, they are doing big things and great things and living their lives. You keep your memories of what you think you know hope its not your last thought before your last breath, that would be sad and pathetic. Now back on topic. I’ve heard great things about the play cantwait to see it in January.

    @No Love,

    You are a sad sad person to keep bringing up things you know absolutely nothing about. Is that all you do is dwell on these rumors? You really shouldn’t let it make you so angry because it has absolutely nothing to do with you.

    I attended the premiere last night and I must say, Stick Fly is absolutely amazing. I’m not a fan of plays because of the overacting, but Stick Fly is completely different. The acting was great, the quality of the show is on another level, I just LOVED it.
    Alicia Keys was so nice too! It was freezing and she still took pictures with fans, it was just really great. Do yourself a favor and check it out.

    Ms. Alicia Keys is an angel! She greets you like a friend and is so beautiful. The play is very moving and touching family issues and secrets.

    I will definitely go see it again.

    I appreciate Alicia Keys bringing it to Broadway.

    Aww, I’m glad the play was a big hit but then why wouldn’t it be? Alicia is so dedicated to everything she does. She is a very beautiful and caring lady and I wish her continued success.
