Don't see it if you are looking for a serious discussion of racism.This goes for the cheap laughs.Premise is interesting, just not well executed.
See it if Black SNL on steroids. Hilarious -- humor ranged from Real Housewives to Colbert-like political. "Peaches" is great. Amazing costumes
Don't see it if The actors speak so fast, that I often couldn't keep up with it. Some jokes flew right by me. Many pop culture references i didn't get.
See it if you like comedies with resonant social commentary.
Don't see it if you don’t like to confront your biases… actually nevermind, you should see it most of all in that case.
See it if like scenes put together as a play. take-offs on what's happening now. actors perform various roles well
Don't see it if want a complete story throughout - this feels like separate skits thrown together to try and make a full story. topic may not be for all

Don't see it if You can't deal with a funny, sharp, totally honest yet outrageous and acerbic script about race relations in the US. Read more

" 'Ain’t No Mo’ has an immediate impact, but its biting commentary on race doesn’t leave a bruise."
" 'Ain’t No Mo’ is a dazzling cascade of ideas...It’s as shiny, heavy and fabulously overstuffed as Miss Bag, and it speaks compellingly to the bind of Black Americans in the post-Obama age."
"It’s a show that’s bawdy and bold and uninterested in seeming respectable, but it’s also fascinated by respectability, the question of who might leave or stay on that flight, who might embrace their Blackness and who might try to bury it."
“ 'Ain’t No Mo’,' produced on Broadway by a team led by Lee Daniels, is a daring and uproarious feat of performance that is thrillingly alive to the moment."
"All the ensemble performers here — are superb. And while this is no traditional Broadway attraction, with all the attendant risks for the producers, the production values for the show are inventive and strikingly well realized."
"This play is fanged, ferocious, and funny as all get out."
"Angry, funny, uncompromising and performed at an extraordinarily high level...It abandons caution to the winds and really, really goes there, meaning wherever the heck Cooper wants."
"One of the things that impressed me about the play this time around - was the oppressive presence of whiteness that Cooper and the creative team create with nary a Caucasian in sight."
