Ain’t Too Proud is an electrifying new musical about the life and times ofThe Temptations, “the greatest R&B group of all time” (Billboard Magazine). Five young guys on the streets of Detroit were discovered by Berry Gordy, who signed them to his legendary new label. With their signature dance moves and unmistakable harmonies, they rose to the top of the charts-creating an amazing 42 Top Ten Hits with 14 reaching number one. Through friendship and betrayal amid the civil unrest that tore America apart, their moving and personal story still resonates five decades later.

Under the shrewd direction of Des McAnuff, with sensational choreography by Sergio Trujillo, Ain’t Too Proud celebrates the collective miracle of a blissfully silken sound forged out of clashing egos. It refreshingly emphasizes the improbable triumph of rough, combustible parts assembled into glistening smoothness.” The New York Times
