“A force almost as irresistible as any of the temptations’ greatest hits.” -Los Angeles Times
See the international superstar vocal group’s extraordinary journey from the streets of Detroit to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in Ain’t Too Proud – The Life and Times of the Temptations. This musical tells the thrilling story of brotherhood, family, loyalty, and betrayal as the group’s personal and political conflicts threatened to tear them apart during a decade of civil unrest in America. The legendary quintet, or the “Classic Five,” were known globally for their silky-smooth harmonies and signature dance moves, all captured in this unforgettable musical.
The creative team behind Ain’t Too Proud is also legendary. Obie Award winner Dominique Morisseau wrote the story brought to life by two-time Tony® Award Winning director Des McAnuff (Jersey Boys) and Tony® Award Winning choreographer Sergio Trujillo (Jersey Boys).
“Dazzling! This show will blow you away.” – The Washington Post

Performances begin at the Ahmanson Theatre on December 13.
