It was a relaxing weekend at the beach ... until the baggage got unpacked.
Grammy Award-winner Alicia Keys with Reuben Cannon & Nelle Nugent produce the Broadway premiere of Stick Fly, the critically-acclaimed new play by Lydia R. Diamond and directed by Kenny Leon.
Stick Fly follows the LeVays, an affluent African American family who come together to spend a summer weekend at their Martha's Vineyard home. 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.
