“Ain’t Too Proud” opens at the Ahmanson Theatre! “The Temptations’ music and moves are deeply woven into our consciousness but the band’s story is just as compelling,” said Center Theatre Group Artistic Director Michael Ritchie. Ahmanson audiences will get to see this exciting new musical before it makes its way to Broadway.
With a book by Kennedy Prize-winning playwright Dominique Morisseau, “Ain’t Too Proud” features an iconic score made up of The Temptations’ legendary songs including “My Girl,” “Just My Imagination” and “Papa Was A Rolling Stone.” Directed by twotime Tony Award winner Des McAnuff and choreographed by Olivier Award winner Sergio Trujillo, “Ain’t Too Proud” is a new musical that follows The Temptations’ extraordinary journey from the streets of Detroit to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. 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. A tale of friendship and betrayal amid the civil unrest that tore America apart, their moving and personal story still resonates five decades later.
