Iconic singer-songwriter Alicia Keys‘ musical “Hell’s Kitchen” is set to open on Broadway in Spring 2024.

“Hell’s Kitchen” is based on her experience growing up in the Manhattan neighborhood of the same name.

“Good things take time and for 13 years, I’ve been dreaming, developing and finding inspiration for a musical based on my experience growing up in Hell’s Kitchen, NYC. Hell’s Kitchen is inspired by my life, but it’s not a biographical story. It’s a story about family relationships and identity: Who are we? Who do we want to be? Who are we becoming?” Keys said, per The Hollywood Reporter.

She added, “The score features new songs that I’m really excited to get out into the world alongside many of my album releases that you know but you’ve never heard like this – rearranged and reinterpreted.”

Written by Pulitzer Prize finalist Kristoffer Diaz, the musical is directed by Michael Greif and choreographed by Camille Brown.

“Hell’s Kitchen” revolves around a teenager, Ali, who is eager to achieve her New York dream.

According to the official description, “Ali’s mother is just as determined to protect her daughter from the same mistakes she made. When Ali falls for a talented young drummer, both mother and daughter must face hard truths about race, defiance, and growing up. Ali feels trapped, until the sound of a neighbor playing piano opens the door to an unexpected friendship and a radically different future.”

“Hell’s Kitchen” made its premiere on November 19th at The Public Theater in New York.
