Hells Kitchen on Broadway Background

Alicia Keys’ semi-autobiographical stage musical Hell’s Kitchen is set to open on Broadway in Spring 2024. The musical is loosely based on Keys’ early life in the New York neighborhood. Alicia Keys does not appear in the show.

Show Graduated To Broadway From The Public Theater

The show played a sold-out run Off-Broadway at the Newman Theater at the Public Theater and ran from October 24 - January 14, 2024. The show then graduated to Broadway, and followed a trail from the Public to Broadway that few other shows have done. Famous examples have included Hamilton and Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson.

Show Schedule for 2024

The show will then transfer to Broadway’s Shubert Theater at the end of March 2024. The show plays eight performances a week, with two performances each (including a matinee) on Wednesdays and Saturdays. There are no performances on Mondays.

What's Hells Kitchen Like?

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.

What The Critics Said

Variety Magazine:

According to a review by Variety, the musical is a vibrant depiction of teen girlhood and captures the ever-evolving emotions of the protagonist, Ali. The review also mentions that the play showcases the perspective of a single mother determined to get her daughter to make different choices from her own.

Slant Magazine:

Slant Magazine describes the musical as "a flimsy jukebox musical that doesn’t do justice to the soaringly self-empowered maturity of much of Keys’s songs"

Is Hells Kitchen Good for Kids?

Despite the music in the show having a wide appeal, the show itself is not good for kids due to adult themes. Hell’s Kitchen contains strong language and moments with mature themes, including mentions of sex and violence. The show is recommended for children over the age of 16.
