About Ain't No Mo' on Broadway

Buckle up, Broadway. From the acclaimed filmmaker and creator of Empire comes Ain't No Mo', an unprecedented, unpredictable comedy that navigates the turbulence of being Black in today's America.

Direct from its smash-hit run at The Public Theater, Ain't No Mo' dares to ask the incendiary question, “What if the U.S. government offered Black Americans one-way plane tickets to Africa?” The answer is the high-octane new comedy from the mischievous mind of playwright Jordan E. Cooper and director Stevie Walker-Webb, both making their Broadway debut.

“Fasten your seatbelts,” raves the New York Times, for the "thrilling, bewildering, campy, shrewd, mortifying, scary, devastating and deep” new comedy everyone will be talking about.

Ain't No Mo' is a play, broadly, about the experience of being Black in America in the present day. More specifically, the show poses the outlandish question: What if, to "solve" racism in America with minimal effort, the government offered all Black Americans a one-way ticket to Africa, and millions actually accepted? Peaches, a drag-queen flight attendant on Flight 1619, guides the audience through a collection of humorous and fearless (and unabashedly profane) sketches that answer that question.

Ain't No Mo' uses satire, minstrelsy, allegory, and more to explore different Black American experiences that would theoretically drive them to board that plane. But the show also explores what America loses when it loses Black culture, and vice versa, and whether separation from racism is truly possible.

Ain't No Mo' marked the professional debut of playwright Jordan E. Cooper in 2019, when he was just 23 years old. The world premiere at The Public Theater received rave reviews, and a D.C. production did the same before the return of Ain't No Mo' to New York, this time on Broadway.

Get your boarding passes — that is, your Ain't No Mo' Broadway tickets — on TodayTix, and buckle up for a wild theatrical ride.

What to Watch For

  • In Ain't No Mo' off and on Broadway, Jordan E. Cooper stars in his own show as Peaches. Multiple other Off-Broadway cast members return for the Broadway premiere, including Crystal Lucas-Perry, Fedna Jacquet, Marchánt Davis, and Ebony Marshall-Oliver.
  • Ain't No Mo' makes Cooper the youngest American Broadway playwright in history at 27. He's also the youngest Black showrunner in American TV history, for The Ms. Pat Show.
  • Flight 1619 is named for the year enslaved Africans first arrived in the U.S. colonies, according to historical record.
  • Ain't No Mo' references multiple other pieces of Black media and pop culture, including the Real Housewives TV franchise, Alice Walker's The Color Purple, and George C. Wolfe's The Colored Museum. One example is Peaches herself: The Colored Museum also features a stewardess, dressed in pink, overseeing those on a “celebrity slave ship.”
  • Cooper originally didn't plan to play Peaches, but he ended up having to step into the role ahead of the Public Theater premiere. As he later told The New York Times, "It felt so natural, so organic, and I felt this sense of freedom in exploring my femininity."
