Review: Stick Fly on Broadway

by xoJohn

Stick Fly the award-winning play by Lydia R. Diamond is having its first Broadway run after successful engagements in Boston and Washington D.C. at The Cort Theater on West 48th Street. Directed by Kenny Leon, the play puts a spotlight on the upper-class Black-American experience. Martha’s Vineyard is the setting for a play that confronts issues of race, class and paternal responsibility. The play is that rare thing a successful dramedy that mixes tragedy and comedy sometimes within the same scene.
