Alicia Keys has been dipping her fingers all the way in the behind-the-scenes lane these days.

Check out pics from today's press day, plus what the play is all about, inside...
Alicia is at the production helm of the Broadway production, as well as composing original musical, of the upcoming play Stick Fly. She and the cast hit Hard Rock Cafe in Times Square this morning to debut their team to the media. Dule Hill, Tracie Thoms, Mekhi Phifer are a few of the actors starring in the play. Alicia said in a statement:
“It’s honestly been a dream come true. I love the humor and humanity of Stick Fly, and I’m so excited to be a part of the emotional journey."
She tweeted today: Meeting the press for @stickflyplay with cast and creative team @dulehill, @traciethoms
Ms. Keys teamed up with Director Kenny Leon ("The Mountaintop" & "Raisin In The Sun") and playwright Lydia R. Diamond to put on this production. Stick Fly is about a young woman goes home to meet her fiance's family for the first time on Martha's Vineyard. It focuses around an African American family, but appeals to any human experience.
