The untold story of this legendary quintet is brought to life by a powerhouse creative team representing the best of Broadway, with a book by three time Obie Award winner Dominique Morisseau, direction by two-time Tony Award winner Des McAnuff (Jersey Boys), and choreography by Tony nominee Sergio Trujillo (Jersey Boys, On Your Feet).

What's the story of Ain't Too Proud - The Life And Times Of The Temptations?
Five guys. One dream. And a sound that would make music history.
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. The rest is history — how they met, the groundbreaking heights they hit, and how personal and political conflicts threatened to tear the group apart as the United States fell into civil unrest.
This thrilling story of brotherhood, family, loyalty, and betrayal is set to the beat of the group’s treasured hits, including “My Girl,” “Just My Imagination,” “Get Ready,” “Papa Was a Rolling Stone,” and so many more.
