New York City
In a cramped apartment hanging off the side of Times Square, 17-year-old Ali is desperate to get her piece of the New York dream. 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.
Loosely based on Alicia Keys’ personal experiences, with choreography by Tony Award nominee Camille A. Brown, and direction by Tony Award nominee Michael Greif, Hell’s Kitchen is an unforgettable new show featuring both newly created music and the soulful, iconic songs of New York’s own Alicia Keys.
