“Dazzling and ready for Broadway!” – Washington Post
Taking The Temptation’s astonishing career and condensing it into musical format was no mean feat – considered widely to be the greatest R&B group of all time, their achievements include 42 top ten hits, including an amazing 14 number ones and countless awards including three Grammys over the course of 55 years. Nonetheless, producers Tom Hulce and Ira Pittelman of Spring Awakening and American Idiot have done an astonishing job of it.
“Astounding new musical about the lives and careers of The Temptations is tantamount to a religious experience” – DC Theatre Scene
Featuring a book by Kennedy Prize-winning playwright Dominique Morisseau, choreography by Olivier Award winner Sergio Trujillo, and of course, music by The Temptations including “Get Ready,” “Ain’t Too Proud to Beg,” “If You Don’t Know Me by Now,” “I’m Gonna Make You Love Me,” and, of course “My Girl,” Ain’t Too Proud more than does justice to the amazing stories behind the five principal band members.
