Alicia Keys-Produced Broadway Play "Stick Fly" Finds Its Cast...

Tony Award-winner Ruben Santiago-Hudson, Emmy nominee Dulé Hill, Mekhi Phifer, Tracie Thoms, and Condola Rashad make up the official cast of Lydia R. Diamond’s play Stick Fly, which Alicia Keys is producing along with long-time Tyler Perry producer, Reuben Cannon, to be directed by Kenny Leon (The Mountaintop, Fences).

A quick recap… Stick Flychronicles the interactions and revelations within a well-to-do black family at its home in Martha’s Vineyard.

A longer description:

It was supposed to be a relaxing weekend at the family home on Martha’s Vineyard… until the baggage got unpacked. Set at the elegant summer home of the well-to-do LeVay family, Stick Fly begins when two adult sons bring their significant others (one a fiancée, the other a new girlfriend) home to meet their parents for the first time. Soon, secrets are revealed, civilities are dropped and identities are explored in a harsh new light. Race and rivalry, class and family, all come together for an explosive comedy of manners about today’s complex world.

By the way, a website ( has also been launched for the show, so you can keep track of its progress over the next 3 months.

My producing partners and I are thrilled to have such a strong and talented ensemble cast assembled… Having this incredible group of actors to help bring Lydia’s beautiful play to life is going to take Broadway’s wattage to the next level!” said Alicia Keys in a statement.

Stick Fly will officially open on Broadway on December 8.

More to come, so stay tuned…

Wow,with all the stuff coming Mountain Top,Porgy +Bess,Street Car+Stick Fly I’m really going to have to go to the theater ! I can stop dreaming for a min. the dream is here.


Dule Hill!!!! I’m a huge fan!


It’s a mixed bag. Ruben Santiago Hudson and Tracie Thoms = good. Mekhi Phifer = suspect.


I have read this play and have been waiting on this casting . . . and this casting is pretty much dead on . . . with the exception of Phifer. But the key roles are well appointed . . . looking forward to it!
