About Hell's Kitchen on Broadway

Ali is a 17-year-old girl full of fire – searching for freedom, passion and her place in the world. How she finds them is a New York City coming-of-age story you've never felt before – Hell's Kitchen, a new musical from 16-time Grammy® Award winner Alicia Keys, whose songs and experiences growing up in NY inspire a story made for Broadway.

Rebellious and stifled by an overprotective single mother, Ali is lost until she meets her mentor: a neighbor who opens her heart and mind to the power of the piano. Set to the rhythm of the 90s, Hell's Kitchen is a love story between a mother and daughter. It's about finding yourself, your purpose, and the community that lifts you. Come remember where dreams begin.

The “powerhouse cast” (Variety) is led by Shoshana Bean, Brandon Victor Dixon, Kecia Lewis, Chris Lee, and Maleah Joi Moon. Hell's Kitchen is directed by four-time Tony Award® nominee Michael Greif, with choreography by Tony Award nominee Camille A. Brown, a book by Pulitzer Prize finalist Kristoffer Diaz – and the music of Keys, featuring new songs and her greatest hits.

More information about Hell's Kitchen on Broadway

Hell’s Kitchen, the powerful musical from Grammy Award-winning musician Alicia Keys, is the most Tony Award-nominated musical of 2024 with 13 nods, including Best Musical and performance nominations for Maleah Joi Moon, Shoshana Bean, and Kecia Lewis. Get Hell’s Kitchen tickets on TodayTix!

Inspired by Alicia Keys' experiences in the city and named for the Manhattan neighborhood where she grew up, Hell’s Kitchen takes audiences into the concrete jungle where the 16-time Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter's own dreams were made. Meet 17-year-old Ali, living with a single mother in a small apartment where music fills the streets and the windows open up to a kaleidoscopic, artistic world.

As Ali falls for a bright young drummer, befriends a wise piano teacher, and clashes with her protective single mother, she learns hard truths about life, love, and freedom — but she also learns what great dreams her future can hold.

Keys’ greatest hits and new songs make up the soundscape of the city in Hell’s Kitchen. Hailed as “a sparkling story with iconic music and absolute powerhouse vocals” by Variety, Hell’s Kitchen is a show as vibrant as New York itself.

Keys earned five Grammy Awards for her 2001 debut album (which featured the hit single “Fallin’”), racked up another four with her second album (which featured “If I Ain’t Got You”), and earned her latest in 2024. She is a classically trained pianist, but Keys' music incorporates a variety of influences, including soul, R&B, pop, and hip-hop. With more than 90 million records sold worldwide, she is one of the bestselling music artists in the world.

Her collaborators on the Hell’s Kitchen musical are just as notable. Bookwriter Kristoffer Diaz is a Pulitzer Prize finalist for his play The Elaborate Entrance of Chad Deity, and choreographer Camille A. Brown is a three-time Tony Award nominee, including for the 2022 revival of Ntozake Shange’s for colored girls who have considered suicide / when the rainbow is enuf. Director Michael Greif is a five-time Tony nominee for directing musicals, including the Lower East Side-set Rent.

Hell’s Kitchen in New York will inspire you. Get in an “Empire State of Mind” with Hell’s Kitchen on Broadway.

What to watch for

  • Hell’s Kitchen isn’t Keys’ first Broadway credit. She composed music for the 2011 Broadway play Stick Fly, and Keys’s musical style inspired a song in the musical Six.
  • Hell’s Kitchen includes three never-before-heard songs: “Seventeen,” which Keys wrote specifically for the show, and the previously unreleased “Kaleidoscope” and “The River.” Listen for them on stage!
  • Keys got the theatre bug in early childhood. She sang in a school production of Cats and played Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz.
  • Fittingly, the whole lead creative team of Hell’s Kitchen are New York natives. Alongside Keys, Diaz hails from Yonkers, Greif from Brooklyn, and Brown from Queens.
  • The Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood got its name in the late 1800s. There are many different origin stories, but they all refer to the fact that the area was run down back then. Nowadays, Hell’s Kitchen is a lively entertainment and restaurant district — so the “kitchen” part is still accurate!
  • Lin-Manuel Miranda, another NYC native, premiered his blockbuster musical Hamilton at The Public Theater before it became a Broadway phenomenon. Now Keys is following in his footsteps!
