Make your appointment at Jaja's African Hair Braiding on Broadway, the latest world-premiere play from award-winning playwright Jocelyn Bioh. Get Jaja's African Hair Braiding tickets on TodayTix.
On one hot summer day at the title Harlem salon, a group of West African women create artistic masterpieces with their clients' hair. As usual, they chat about their dreams, loves, and ambitions — but they also discuss the ever-growing threat of suddenly being outsiders in their own neighborhood. Don't miss this equally fun and poignant comedy from the writer of School Girls; Or, The African Mean Girls Play and Obie Award-winning director Whitney White.

Both Bioh and White are making Broadway debuts with Jaja's African Hair Braiding. Bioh, who is also an actor, performed in The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time in 2014, but this play marks her Broadway writing debut. All her previous plays have debuted off Broadway and beyond: the multi-award-winning School Girls; Or, The African Mean Girls Play, the rom-com Nollywood Dreams, and the Shakespeare adaptation Merry Wives.
White is best known for her Obie Award-winning direction of Our Dear Dead Drug Lord off Broadway in 2019, and for other shows including the world premiere of Aleshea Harris's Pulitzer-nominated On Sugarland.
