THE WEST WING
The singer famous for singing "there's nothing you can't do" is proving it herself.
Alicia Keys announced Tuesday that she's joined the creative team for Stick Fly, a new Broadway play starring Dulé Hill ("Psych," "The West Wing") and Mekhi Phifer ("E.R.," 8 Mile). Keys, who was already a producer on the project, can now add Broadway composing to her resume, which already includes her 30 million album sales, best-selling book, and philanthropic work to fight HIV/AIDS in Africa.
"As someone who walked up and down this boulevard as a young girl, I cannot describe the thrill of having the opportunity of composing songs for a Broadway show,” Keys said. The classically-trained pianist added that the play about sibling rivalries flaring during a family's Martha's Vineyard vacation, has "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.”
