Will Smith & Jada Pinkett Smith Buy Out Performance of AIN'T NO MO

According to a post on Jordan E. Cooper's Instagram page, Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith have bought out a performance of AIN'T NO MO. The show has announced a closing date of December 18th.

Yesterday, Cooper called on the community to support the show in an effort to save AIN'T NO MO from closing, asking for those who can afford tickets to sponsor someone who cannot.

The post states: "We still fighting! Thank you @willsmith & @jadapinkettsmith for believing in this work and joining the fight!

Upon the scheduled closing date of December 18th, Ain't No Mo' will have played 22 preview performances and 21 performances on Broadway. Jordan E. Cooper has made history as the youngest Black American playwright on Broadway. Ain't No Mo' is directed by Stevie-Walker Webb.

Tickets for the remaining performances are available via www.aintnomobway.com, www.telecharge.com or by calling 212-239-6200.

Having premiered to overwhelming acclaim at The Public Theater, Ain't No Mo' dares to ask the incendiary question, "What if the U.S. government attempted to solve racism ... by offering Black Americans one-way plane tickets to Africa?" The answer comes in the form of an outrageous and high-octane comedy about being Black in today's America. From the mischievous mind of Jordan E. Cooper ("The Ms. Pat Show"), Ain't No Mo' seamlessly blends sketch comedy, satire and avant garde theater to leave audiences crying with laughter-and thinking through the tears.
