Ain't Too Proud - The Life and Times of the Temptations on Broadway Background

After a popular out of town run at both the Berkeley Repertory Theatre and the formidable Kennedy Center in Washington, Ain't Too Proud - The Life and Times of the Temptations lands on Broadway and brings the previously untold story of this musical quintet to life. The show is choc full of personal conflicts and the terrible choices each of the members endured and how, despite these challenges, they persevered to gain musical success and notoriety in a time when the odds were stacked against them.

What’s Ain't Too Proud - The Life and Times of the Temptations Like?

Another jukebox musical that packs more songs in than story line will appeal to those who know the music, but will turn off others who want to see an actual Broadway show where character development and the story arc still counts for something.

Is Ain't Too Proud - The Life and Times of the Temptations Good for Kids?

This show is not kid friendly with its adult themes and protracted violent scenes of death and murder.
