‘Stick’ flies to Cort Theater

Broadway play switches venues

“Stick Fly,” the incoming Broadway play produced by a team that includes Alicia Keys, has shifted from the Lyceum Theater to the Cort Theater.

Venue shuffles aren’t terribly unusual as a Broadway season comes together. For “Stick Fly,” both the Lyceum and the Cort are east of Broadway, traditionally considered a bit less desirable than one of the many Main Stem houses west of Broadway, where a majority of Rialto theaters are clustered.

Scribe Lydia Diamond’s play has earned strong notices in Chicago, Boston and D.C. Story follows the gathering of a wealthy African-American family for a summer weekend on Martha’s Vineyard.

Dates for “Stick Fly” remain unchanged, with previews starting Nov. 18 ahead of a Dec. 8 opening. Kenny Leon — whose most recent Main Stem outing, “Fences,” also played the Cort — directs the show, produced by Keys, Reuben Cannon and Nelle Nugent. Casting remains to be announced.
