Review: AIN'T TOO PROUD at Paramount Theater Photo Review: AIN'T TOO PROUD at Paramount Theater
by Kelly Rogers Flynt - Jan 25, 2023

The road to fame is long and hard. AIN’T TOO PROUD guides you through the journey of The Temptations as they reach for the stars. The music is soulful, and the moves are sublime. The journey itself is full of potholes and obstacles, and the show hits a few bumps along the way. The show is a fun night of entertainment but missed some key opportunities to be so much more.
