Hell's Kitchen, a new musical, will be created by Alicia Keys, and the production will be inspired by her personal story.
Deadline reports that the 15-time Grammy winner will direct the musical with the Off-Broadway Public Theater in New York City.
The musical "Night's Kitchen" will be named after the Manhattan hood Alicia grew up in as a young lady, and the synopsis will be described as a "next musical that tells the story of Ali, a young girl growing up in NYC's Hell's Kitchen in the 1990s."
Michael Greif (Rent) will direct the next project, with Kristoffer Diaz (Public's version of Hercules) and Camille A. Brown (Choir Boy) directing the new production.
Although Keys' new project has yet to cast all roles, some of the major actors have been chosen.
Three unspecified actors have been cast in Hell's Kitchen, including for the main character Ali, who was described as a "strong, stubborn girl with a rebellious streak" — Jersey, "Ali's mother, raising her as a single mom," and Ali's father, Davis.
Muhammad Ali's life story will be adapted into a musical called ALI, according to Deadline.
“It's important that everyone learn about Muhammad Ali and what he stands for and his examples,” Willis stated.
In 2024, ALI is scheduled to debut on Broadway.
