Alicia Keys is following Jay-Z and Will Smith into the world of Broadway producers.

The singer, whose hits include Fallin' and A Woman's Worth, will help produce the play Stick Fly.

The Lydia R Diamond work is described as a contemporary comedy of manners revolving around an affluent black family. Alicia says it's a story that everyone can relate to.

The piece has been performed in Boston, Chicago and Washington, DC. It begins performances at the Lyceum Theatre on 45th Street on November 18 and officially opens December 8.

Ms Diamond, a playwriting professor at Boston University, adapted Toni Morrison's The Bluest Eye for the stage and has written Stage Black and The Gift Horse.

In 2009, Jay-Z, Will Smith and wife Jada Pinkett Smith joined the producing team of the musical Fela.
