What is Ain’t Too Proud About?

Five guys with one shared dream and a sound that made music history! Their distinctive harmonies and signature dance moves helped them rise to the top of music charts with their 42 Top Ten hits, of which 14 reached number one.

The jukebox musical, Ain’t Too Proud celebrates the life and times of the musical group. They were pioneers of soul and R&B music, paving the way for many acts after them. The Temptations sold millions of records, and this play is fantastic because it starts at the beginning of their story and chronicles through until their decline.

Guests will watch Broadway stars such as Derrick Baskin take on the role of group leader Otis Williams, Jawan M. Jackson starring as Melvin Franklin, James Harkness as Paul Williams, Jelani Remy as Eddie Kendricks, Ephraim Sykes as David Ruffin, and more. Ain’t Too Proud features some of The Temptations’ biggest hits such as “Ain’t Too Proud to Beg,” “Don’t Look Back,” “Baby Love,” “Cloud Nine,” “I Can’t Get Next to You,” and many more.

Each song is accompanied by choreographed dance numbers that are based on actual performances by the group. The songs simultaneously entertain the audience while also driving the story along. Yet, it’s not just a sung-through musical, as there is lots of dialogue as well.

For those still unsure if this musical is the right fit, it’s worth mentioning that any fan of jukebox musicals will enjoy the show—especially fans of Tony Award-winning Jersey Boys and Motown: The Musical. The bottom line is that Ain’t Too Proud is a biographical jukebox musical that depicts the life and times of The Temptations. So, if you’re a fan of their music and would like to learn more about their lives, this is one show you won’t want to miss!
