Grammy® Award-winning singer/songwriter and Broadway producer Alicia Keys and cast members of STICK FLY will greet and sign autographs for ticket buyers in the lobby of the Cort Theatre (138 W. 48th Street) on Wednesday, November 16 from 12:00 p.m. to 1 p.m. This event celebrates the Broadway debut of Lydia R. Diamond’s critically-acclaimed play. Directed by Kenny Leon, the production begins performances this Friday, November 18 in advance of a Thursday, December 8 opening.

{module ad_left_body}Those who purchase a ticket at the box office the morning of Wednesday, November 16th (beginning at 10 a.m.) will be given an opportunity to stand in line to meet Alicia Keys and cast members, and have a STICK FLY poster signed. Those who do not have proof of ticket purchase will not be permitted to line up for the greeting and poster signing. Ticket buyers may choose to leave the box office after purchase and return to the line, but they will forfeit their place in the line.

Making their Broadway debuts, Mekhi Phifer (“ER,” 8 Mile) will play Flip Levay (a plastic surgeon), and Drama Desk Award nominee Condola Rashad (Ruined) will play Cheryl (a maid).

It was a relaxing weekend on Martha’s Vineyard ... until the baggage got unpacked. Meet the LeVays.  When two adult sons independently choose to introduce their girlfriends to the parents on the same weekend, sibling rivalries flare, opinions clash, class distinctions divide and family secrets unravel.  Get your tickets now to STICK FLY, a wickedly funny, endlessly surprising new play by Lydia R. Diamond, directed by Kenny Leon.

In addition to Alicia Keys, the creative team for STICK FLY includes David Gallo (Scenic Design), Reggie Ray (Costume Design), Beverly Emmons (Lighting Design) and Peter Fitzgerald / Sound Associates (Sound Design).

Harris/Catherine Schreiber, Huntington Theatre Company, Dan Frishwasser, Charles Salameno, Sharon A.

STICK FLY was developed in a recent co-production last year between the Huntington Theatre Company in Boston and Arena Stage in Washington D.C. The play had its world premiere at Chicago’s Congo Square Theatre Company in 2006 and was subsequently performed at theatres including the McCarter Theatre in 2007 and the Matrix Theatre Company in Los Angeles in 2009.
