Photo Coverage: AIN'T NO MO' Celebrates Opening Night at the Public Theater

The world premiere of AIN'T NO MO', written by Jordan E. Cooper and directed by Stevie Walker-Webb. AIN'T NO MO' opened just last night, Wednesday, March 27, at The Public Theater.

The complete cast of AIN'T NO MO' features Jordan E. Cooper (Peaches), Marchánt Davis (Passenger 2), Fedna Jacquet (Passenger 1), Crystal Lucas-Perry (Passenger 5), Ebony Marshall-Oliver (Passenger 4), and Simone Recasner (Passenger 3). Hermon Whaley Jr. will be the standby for "Peaches" and will be performing on all Sunday matinees, and Jennean Farmer is the female understudy.

AIN'T NO MO' is a vibrant satirical odyssey portraying the great exodus of black Americans out of a country plagued with injustice. In a kaleidoscope of scenes of the moments before, during, and after this outrageous departure, Jordan E. Cooper's extraordinary new work explores the value of black lives in a country hurtling away from the promise of a black president.

The world premiere play features scenic design by Kimie Nishikawa; costume design by Montana Levi Blanco; lighting design by Adam Honoré; sound design by Emily Auciello; and hair, wig and make-up design by Cookie Jordan.
