About Hell's Kitchen on Broadway

Now she's in New York! Alicia Keys's musical Hell's Kitchen, inspired by the Grammy-winning musician's New York upbringing, is the most Tony Award-nominated musical of 2024, with 13 nods including Best Musical. Get Hell's Kitchen tickets on New York Theatre Guide, and experience the show just blocks away from the title neighborhood.

The Hell's Kitchen musical is set in a tiny apartment in the title neighborhood, where 17-year-old Ali has big dreams and a wary mother who tries to keep Ali from repeating her past mistakes. As Ali falls for a young drummer and befriends a piano teacher in her building, she and her mother learn all the possibilities Ali's future can hold — and the racial and coming-of-age obstacles she'll have to overcome to make her dreams come true.

This new show marks Keys' second foray into Broadway theatre following the 2011 play Stick Fly, for which she composed original music. She's best known for her acclaimed music career, which has earned her 16 Grammy Awards. Keys is known for her unique sound that blends R&B, soul, hip-hop, and pop, and some of her biggest hits include "Fallin'," "If I Ain't Got You," and "Empire State of Mind." All these existing hits and more appear in Hell's Kitchen alongside previously unheard songs.

Hell's Kitchen on Broadway is at the Shubert Theatre in the Theatre District, adjacent to Hell's Kitchen. The musical premiered a little further away from the title neighborhood, though: at The Public Theater in Manhattan's NoHo neighborhood. Multiple musicals, including Manhattan native Lin-Manuel Miranda's Hamilton, made the move uptown after premiering at the Public.

Speaking of New York natives, the entire lead creative team of Hell's Kitchen, alongside Keys, was also born and raised in the area. Director Michael Greif, a five-time Tony nominee for directing the NYC-set Rent and other shows, is from Brooklyn. Choreographer Camille A. Brown (two-time Tony nominee for the 2022 revival of for colored girls) hails from Queens, and bookwriter Kristoffer Diaz (Pulitzer Prize finalist for The Elaborate Entrance of Chad Deity) is from Yonkers, just outside the city.

Don’t see it if Urnt x R&B,soul, or hip hop music from the 90s,nor x A GIRL ON FIRE, tho a long stand-up ovation proved the audience being fired up as well.

Love song 2 nyc & its people, Drawn from albums & life story of alicia keys, Shows the coming of age of a teen and her artistry

See it if fills stage w superb singing, extraord hip-hop dance; ShoshanaB/BrandonD/KeciaL kill it vocally, MJ Moon breakout debut as lead

Don’t see it if basic story teen rebels vs single mother pedestrian, not compelling; saccharine funeral; dancing overkill; missing: how AK became songwriter

Fluffy, Great staging, Edgy, Great singing, Entertaining

See it if you like new choreography performed by an exciting ensemble, new music and to see the brilliance of Kecia Lewis' acting and singing.

Don’t see it if you are looking for a New York story that you don't already know, or you expect to hear all Alicia Keyes' hit songs or her full story.

Concrete jungle where dreams are made of

See it if Growing up in Manhattan Plaza, trying to survive an overbearing mother who doesn’t want her daughter to repeat the same choices…

Don’t see it if Story needs some editing and reworking but the vocals and musicality in these performances from Shoshana Bean, Kecia Lewis…
