Ain't Too Proud Los Angeles TicketsBased on the life of one of Motown's biggest R&B musical acts, Ain't Too Proud: The Life and Times of The Temptations documents the group's tragedies and triumphs as it climbs the ladder of fame. From the streets of Detroit to becoming the first Motown act to win a Grammy and achieving Rock & Roll Hall of Fame status, the musical pays tribute to the legendary group. Noted playwright Dominique Morisseau adapted the story from Otis Wilson's 1988 memoir to show how the five-man ensemble landed at the top of the charts amid betrayal, family obligations and civil unrest.
Humble BeginningsAfter a successful high-grossing premiere at California's Berkley Repertory Theatre in 2017 followed by housebreaking records at the Kennedy Center, CTG's Ahmanson Theatre and Toronto's Princess of Wales Theatre in 2018, producers took the jukebox musical to Broadway. The show previewed on the last day in February 2019 ahead of its official March schedule at the Imperial Theatre to a packed house. With 12 Tony nominations under its belt and a Tony Award for Best Choreography, Ain't Too Proud began to draw record crowds, grossing as much as $1.5 million a week. The producers plan more tour dates across the country.
