WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Ain't Too Proud is a new musical about the life and times of the Temptations, ranked the top R&B group in history by Billboard magazine in 2017. At first, the band members were just five young guys on the streets of Detroit. Then they were discovered by Berry Gordy, who signed them to his legendary new label. After 24 attempts, they finally scored a hit, and the rest is history — how they met, how they rose, the heights they hit, and how personal and political conflicts threatened to tear the group apart as the nation fell into civil unrest. Kennedy Prize-winning playwright Dominique Morisseau, Olivier Award-winning choreographer Sergio Trujillo, and multi-Tony Award-winning director Des McAnuff bring this thrilling story of brotherhood, family, loyalty, and betrayal to the stage. Ain't Too Proud includes iconic hits like "My Girl," "Just My Imagination," and "Papa Was a Rolling Stone" as well as the signature dance moves that made the "Classic Five" Temptations part of American cultural history.
