Photo Flash: AINT TOO PROUD Cast Tours Detroit with Dominique Morisseau

Cast of AINT TOO PROUD is given a Detroit historic tour by their award winning playwright and Detroit Native Dominique Morisseau. Aint Too Proud is a story rooted in the textures of Detroit's rich history, so playwright Dominique Morisseau saw it important that cast members explored the city that the story speaks of. Cast members were given a passionate and eyeopening tour, of one of the countries richest historical cities. They even stopped to sing on the street corners where legendary Motown artist sang.

Cast member and Photographer, Jarvis B. Manning Jr. decided to shoot revamped versions of legendary Motown photographs. Using cast members, a trusty remote, and tripod he was able to capture the shots. Jarvis states, "I simply wanted to pay homage to this great city, these musical legends, historical sites, photographer, and their legacy through photography. To capture a photographic moment of my fellow cast members and I, literally standing where they stood."
