Alicia Keys is following Jay-Z and Will Smith into the world of Broadway producers.  Keys, whose hits include “Fallin'” and “A Woman’s Worth,” will help produce Lydia R. Diamond’s play “Stick Fly” this fall.

The work is a contemporary comedy of manners revolving around an affluent black family whose insecurities gradually reveal themselves during a vacation to Martha’s Vineyard.

The piece has been performed in Boston, Chicago and Washington, D.C. It’s set to begin performances at the Lyceum Theatre on 45th Street on Nov. 18 and officially opens Dec. 8.

The director will be Kenny Leon, whose Broadway production of “Fences” earned 10 Tony Award nominations. His other credits include “A Raisin in the Sun” and “Radio Golf.”
