A musical based on R&B group The Temptations’ career is set to hit the stage in Washington, D.C. next year (18).
Ain’t Too Proud – The Life and Times of The Temptations will run for five weeks at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts beginning in June.
It will center on the group’s rise to fame as the bandmates became hit Motown Records artists.
The show will be directed by Des McAnuff and the book has been written by playwright Dominique Morisseau.
Casting will be announced in the near future and producers are planning to bring the musical to Broadway after it wraps in Washington, D.C. The show originally ran at the Berkeley Repertory Theatre in California last year.
