Some More Ain’t No Mo’

Have you heard of Ain’t No Mo’?  This Broadway show is a collection of sketches based on a fascinating premise – what if the US government offered black people a one-way ticket back to Africa?  Alas, clever as it may be, the show is not exactly burning up the box office.  So the producers announced an imminent closing.  Then Will and Jada Pinkett Smith bought out every single ticket for a performance.  They were followed by Queen Latifah.  And then people like Sara Ramirez, Shonda Rhimes, Tyler Perry, Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade hosted pre- and post-show events.  The producers – not people known for turning down money – granted the show an extension.  It will now close on December 23rd, unless by some Christmas/Kwanzaa miracle, tickets start moving.

Speaking of Americans returning to Africa, my dear Jenifer Lewis was recently in Africa and returned home – just in time to appear on Billy Masters LIVE.  Alas, a series of mishaps led to her missing our scheduled chat.  Have no fear – we’re rescheduling for next month!
