The Tony-nominated new musical Ain't Too Proud—The Life and Times of the Temptations offered a special performance to benefit the Actors Fund of America September 15.

The Actors Fund, founded in 1882, provides for the social welfare of all entertainment professionals. Its spectrum of programs include comprehensive social services, health services, supportive and affordable housing, employment and training services, and skilled nursing and assisted living care. Each year, broadway companies donate their time and talent by adding a performance to benefit the nonprofit.

After opening in March, the production earned 11 Tony nominations, winning for Sergio Trujillo’s choreography.
