Ain't Too Proud is heading for Broadway! The musical, about the life of The Temptations, will play Broadway's Imperial Theatre beginning Thursday, February 28, 2019, with an official Opening Night set for Thursday, March 21, 2019.

Ain't Too Proud has already broken records across the country: in its world premiere run at Berkeley Repertory Theatre, the musical became the highest grossing production in that theater's nearly 50-year history. The show subsequently broke The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts' Eisenhower Theater record for single-week box office gross, and the Center Theatre Group/Ahmanson Theatre records for the highest grossing pre-Broadway engagement and attendance.

Leading the Broadway cast as The Temptations are Derrick Baskin as Otis Williams,
James Harkness as Paul Williams, Jawan M. Jackson as Melvin Franklin, Jeremy
Pope as Eddie Kendricks, and Ephraim Sykes as David Ruffin. The Broadway cast
will also feature Saint Aubyn, Shawn Bowers, E. Clayton Cornelious, Taylor
Symone Jackson, Jahi Kearse, Jarvis B. Manning Jr., Joshua Morgan, Rashidra
Scott, Nasia Thomas, Christian Thompson, Candice Marie Woods, Esther
Antoine, Marcus Paul James, Jelani Remy, and Curtis Wiley.
