A Pre-Broadway Run!

Following a record-breaking world premiere run at the Berkeley Repertory Theatre, Ain't Too Proud embarks on its pre-Broadway run at the Ahmanson this season! Ain't Too Proud tells the story of The Temptations and how they became one of the biggest groups in the Motown and R&B genre. With hits like 'My Girl', 'Papa Was a Rollin' Stone','Just My Imagination' and many more this musical is sure to leave you dancing in the aisles.

What is Ain't Too Proud about?

Follow the extraordinary journey of The Temptations as they go from the streets of Detroit to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Travel back in time to see how their signature dance moves and incredible harmonies helped them to rise to the top of charts. But it's not all singing and dancing - this moving and personal story will reflects their early friendship - and the betrayal that nearly tore them apart.
