The Broadway run of Jordan E. Cooper's Ain't No Mo' will end on Sunday, December 18, after 22 previews and 21 performances at the Belasco Theatre. The play had its world premiere at the Public Theater in 2019 and has subsequently been seen around the United States.

Ain't No Mo' stars and is written by Cooper. Blending sketch, satire, and avant garde theater, the play asks the incendiary question, "What if the U.S. government offered Black Americans one-way plane tickets to Africa?" Our critic called it a "no-holds-barred theatrical event." You can read the review here.

In addition to Cooper (who plays Peaches), the cast features Fedna Jacquet (Passenger #1), Marchánt Davis (Passenger #2), Shannon Matesky (Passenger #3), Ebony Marshall-Oliver (Passenger #4), and Crystal Lucas-Perry (Passenger #5). Understudies include Nik Alexander, Jasminn Johnson, Michael Rishawn, Kedren Spencer, Brennie Tellu, and Emma Van Lare.

Directed by Stevie Walker-Webb, the production's creative team includes includes Scott Pask (scenic design), Emilio Sosa (costume design), Adam Honoré (lighting design), Jonathan Deans and Taylor Williams (co-sound design), and Mia M. Neal (wig design).
