Musical theater (and specifically Broadway) has always been one of my biggest passions, and now I’m taking part in it from the other side: as a producer.
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!
