Diamond. “Stick Fly,” directed by Kenny Leon, stars Dulé Hill (“Psych,” “The West Wing”) as Kent “Spoon” Levay, Mekhi Phifer (“ER,” 8 Mile) as Flip Levay, Tracie Thoms (“Cold Case,” Rent) as Taylor, Tony Award-winner Ruben Santiago-Hudson (Seven Guitars, Lackawanna Blues) as Joe Levay, Rosie Benton (Les Liaisons Dangereuses, Accent on Youth) as Kimber and Condola Rashad (Ruined) as Cheryl.  Here’s Alicia’s official statement: “As someone who walked up and down this boulevard as a young girl, I cannot describe the thrill of having the opportunity of composing songs for a Broadway show. It’s honestly been a dream come true. I love the humor and humanity of Stick Fly, and I’m so excited to be a part of the emotional journey this show will take audiences on.”
