After a string of engagements across North America, including a world premiere at Berkeley Repertory Theatre, Ain't Too Proud—The Life and Times of the Temptations will arrive on Broadway. The jukebox musical will open at the Imperial Theatre (recently home to Carousel) March 21, 2019, following previews that begin February 28.

The musical recently concluded a limited engagement at Center Theatre Group's Ahmanson Theatre in Los Angeles, having previously played Berkeley and Washington, D.C.'s Kennedy Center. A Toronto mounting will begin later this month.

The show, featuring a book by Dominique Morisseau, utilizes a score comprised of the Temptations' hits to chart the rise of the R&B group, known for such classics as “My Girl,” “Just My Imagination,” and “Papa Was a Rolling Stone.” The musical will mark the The Detroit Projects playwright's Broadway debut.

Two-time Tony winner Des McAnuff directs, with choreography by Olivier Award winner Sergio Trujillo. The musical also features sets by Robert Brill, costumes by Paul Tazewell, lighting by Howell Binkley, sound design by Steve Canyon Kennedy, projection design by Peter Nigrini, orchestrations by Harold Wheeler, and music direction by Kenny Seymour.

Additional information, including casting, will be announced later.
