Alicia Keys is probably more likely to have pictures taken of her than to being taking pictures, but here she is taking pictures of fans who lined up to get their tickets and a poster signed by Keys and the cast of the new Broadway play, Stick Fly. Keys produces the show now in previews at the Cort Theatre.
