"Ain’t Too Proud: The Life and Times of The Temptations" was nominated for 12 Tony Awards and is the winner of the 2019 Tony Award for Best Choreography. It is a jukebox musical that tells the unrevealed story behind Billboard Magazine's greatest R&B group of all time - The Temptations. Take this musical journey that started on the streets of Detroit to the golden gates of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. All of its compelling plots are told within the backdrop of The Temptations' best-loved classics like “My Girl,” “Just My Imagination,” “Get Ready,” “Papa Was a Rolling Stone” and so many more. Get ready and book your tickets now!
Polished performances, elite choreography (by Sergio Trujillio) and a slate of 31 Motown tunes should satisfy audiences who might not be looking for probing storytelling, as long as the show shashes well-performed hits. That it does, as it centers on the story of the classic quintet of performers singing “Cloud Nine,” “If You Don’t Know Me By Now,” ”My Girl,” “I’m Gonna Make You Love Me” and the title song, among others — including some songs that weren’t the group’s own." So come down to the breathtaking Providence Performing Arts Center in Providence for this much anticipated performance.
