Cast sticks to Broadway ‘Fly’

Hill, Phifer, Thoms among ensemble

Dule Hill, Mekhi Phifer, Tracie Thoms, Ruben Santiago-Hudson and Condola Rashad have booked roles in the upcoming Broadway play “Stick Fly,” the first legit producing venture from Alicia Keys.

Phifer (“ER”) makes his Main Stem debut, appearing with Hill (“Psych”) and Santiago-Hudson (“Seven Guitars”) as members of a wealthy family reuniting on Martha’s Vineyard. Thoms (“Cold Case”) is on board as the fiancee of Hill’s character, while Rashad (“Ruined”) appears as a maid.

Casting in one more role, the part of Phifer’s white girlfriend, remains to be nailed down.

Kenny Leon (“Fences”) helms Lydia Diamond’s comedy on the Rialto. Initially bowing in Chicago in 2006, the play has been seen a number of times in earlier incarnations, including a Leon-directed staging last year co-produced by Boston’s Huntington Theater Company and Washington’s Arena Stage.

Producing team includes Nelle Nugent (“Ghetto Klown”), Keys, Samuel Nappi and Reuben Cannon, among others.

“Stick Fly” begins previews Nov. 18 ahead of a Dec. 8 opening at the Cort Theater.
