Alicia Keys' musical Hell's Kitchen will soon be making its move to Broadway, and the main cast has now officially been solidified.
Announced via Deadline on Wednesday (February 7), the play will star Shoshana Bean (Mr. Saturday Night), Brandon Victor Dixon (Hamilton), Kecia Lewis (Ain't Misbehavin') and, in their Broadway debuts, Chris Lee and Maleah Joi Moon.
Additional casting will be announced at a later date.
Hell's Kitchen got its start playing at the Public Theater last year, ending on January 14. It will transfer to the Shubert Theater on Broadway for previews beginning March 28, with an opening night on April 20.
Upon the announcement of the Broadway debut, Alicia said: "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?"
She continued: "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."
The show's music and lyrics are by the award-winning singer, and the book is penned by Kristoffer Diaz.
In addition to music, Alicia Keys recently filed a trademark to launch a new tea brand, "Alicia Teas" - a move which was inspired by a gift from husband Swizz Beatz.
Swizz gifted Keys her own brand of tea bags in 2020 for her birthday, and proclaimed that the brand would one day be sold in Starbucks locations across the globe.
"Happy birthday we got endless amount of teas and everybody in Starbucks around the world you're gonna see Alicia Teas," Swizz said at the time. "Blessings, happy birthday, baby. Love you!"

It's currently unclear when the Alicia Teas brand will ultimately arrive.
Returning the gesture, Alicia took Swizz on a birthday trip to France in September to celebrate the super-producer's 45th birthday, which saw him surrounded by family and friends, including Pharrell.
The group vacationed to a chateau in the Cognac region of France, where they were treated to a dinner that included fresh fish, sushi and flowing red wine.
