Alicia Keys is setting her sights on Broadway.

The R&B singer-songwriter will write original music for the upcoming Broadway production, Stick Fly, the Associated Press reports.

The play, by Lydia R. Diamond, will begin previews on Nov. 18 at the Cort Theatre before officially opening Dec. 8.

Stick Fly is a comedy that revolves around a wealthy black family whose insecurities begin to unravel during a vacation. Psych star Dule Hill, Mekhi Phifer, Tracie Thoms and Tony winner Ruben Santiago-Hudson are a few notable names in the cast.

The New York Times reports that rehearsals on Stick Fly will begin later this month.

Keys had already been tapped as a producer on the show. She is best known for songs like "Empire State of Mind," "Fallin'" and "A Woman's Worth."
