New York, NY (May 21, 2019) – Producers Ira Pittelman and Tom Hulce announced today that a new block of tickets for the hit new Broadway musical Ain’t Too Proud – The Life and Times of The Temptations are now on sale through May 17, 2020 at Telecharge.com, by calling 800-447-7400, or by visiting the Imperial Theatre Box Office (249 West 45th Street).
Ain’t Too Proud is currently playing Broadway’s legendary Imperial Theatre (249 West 45th Street). The production was recently nominated for 12 Tony Awards including: Best Musical, Best Book of a Musical (Dominique Morisseau), Best Performance by a Leading Actor in a Musical (Derrick Baskin), Best Performance by a Featured Actor in a Musical (Jeremy Pope), Best Performance by a Featured Actor in a Musical (Ephraim Sykes), Best Choreography (Sergio Trujillo), Best Direction of a Musical (Des McAnuff), Best Orchestrations (Harold Wheeler), Best Scenic Design of a Musical (Robert Brill & Peter Nigrini), Best Costume Design of a Musical (Paul Tazewell), Best Lighting Design of a Musical (Howell Binkley), and Best Sound Design of a Musical (Steve Canyon Kennedy).
Ain’t Too Proud is the electrifying new musical that follows The Temptations’ extraordinary journey from the streets of Detroit to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. With their signature dance moves and unmistakable harmonies, they rose to the top of the charts creating an amazing 42 Top Ten Hits with 14 reaching number one. The rest is history — how they met, 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. 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,” “Get Ready,” “Papa Was a Rolling Stone,” and so many more.
After breaking house records at Berkeley Rep, The Kennedy Center, CTG’s Ahmanson Theatre, and Toronto’s Princess of Wales Theatre, Ain’t Too Proud, written by three‑time Obie Award winner Dominique Morisseau, directed by two‑time Tony Award® winner Des McAnuff, and featuring choreography by Tony nominee Sergio Trujillo, now brings the untold story of this legendary quintet to irresistible life on Broadway.
