My first venture is Stick Fly, co-produced by the amazing Alicia Keys. As Broadway.com summarizes, the story follows the LeVays, an affluent African American family who come together to spend a weekend at their stately Martha’s Vineyard mansion. The adult sons, aspiring novelist Kent and golden boy plastic surgeon Flip, have each brought their respective ladies (one black and one white) to meet the parents. Food, drink and Trivial Pursuit tangle with class, race and identity politics in this contemporary comedy of manners.
It opens this Thursday. And if you’re in NYC in the coming months, come check it out!
Smule, the awesome music iPhone/iPad app company, has just acquired Khush, the folks behind LaDiDa–you sing, it generates a beat–and Songify–you sing/talk/make noise and it turns the sound into a song.
I love these folks because they’re leading a social movement to bring the world closer together through social music. Everyone can share the gift and that’s why I’m a founding advisor and investor.
