Get ready—cause here we come with The Actors Fund Special Performance of Ain’t Too Proud–The Life and Times of The Temptations.

Special thanks to the producers, cast and company for this added 9th performance to benefit The Actors Fund!

Ain’t Too Proud brings the untold story of the legendary Temptations to irresistible life on Broadway. This thrilling story of brotherhood, family, loyalty and betrayal is set to the beat of the group’s treasured hits, including “My Girl,” “Just My Imagination,” “Papa Was a Rolling Stone” and so many more.

Follow The Temptations’ extraordinary journey from the streets of Detroit to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame—how they met, how they rose, the groundbreaking heights they hit, and how personal and political conflicts threatened to tear the group apart as the United States fell into civil unrest.

Ain’t Too Proud is written by three-time Obie Award winner Dominique Morisseau (PipelineSkeleton Crew), directed by two-time Tony Award winner Des McAnuff (Jersey Boys), and features Tony Award-winning choreography by Sergio Trujillo (On Your Feet).
