The affleunt LeVay family is now in residence at Broadway’s Cort Theatre, where Lydia R. Diamond's Stick Fly opens on December 8. Kenny Leon directs the new play, which includes Grammy winning artist Alicia Keys among its lead producers.
The cast of Stick Fly includes Tracie Thoms, Mekhi Phifer, Condola Rashad, Ruben Santiago-Hudson, Rosie Benton and Dulé Hill. In addition to producing, Keys has composed original music for the play.
Set at the elegant Martha's Vineyard 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.
