Alicia Keys will write music for Broadway show

NEW YORK (AP) -October 4, 2011

Producers said Tuesday that the musician and singer, whose hits include "Fallin"' and "A Woman's Worth," will offer her songwriting to the play by Lydia R. Diamond. Performances begin Nov. 18 at the Cort Theatre.

The work is a contemporary comedy of manners revolving around an affluent black family whose insecurities gradually unravel during a vacation. The cast includes Dule Hill ("Psych," "The West Wing") and Tony Award-winner Ruben Santiago-Hudson.

Keys already had signed on to help produce the work. Previously, Jay-Z, Will Smith and wife Jada Pinkett Smith helped produce the musical "Fela!"
