Obviously, the music of The Temptations and the audience’s identification with it has a lot to do with that immediate connection. Like how specific smells are able to evoke strong memories, so too can music. And there’s no doubt that The Temptations' music is the soundtrack to the lives of a wide range of generations from Baby Boomers to Millennials. The group started in 1960 and continues to perform today. But Ain’t Too Proud isn’t just another jukebox musical. It’s based on founding member Otis Williams’ (Derrick Baskin) memoir “The Temptations,” and in the musical he is the narrator. As the only one of the “classic five” Temptations alive today, it’s only fitting he’s the one to tell the story. So come and experience an emotional rollercoaster at the iconic Imperial Theatre in New York City for a night of true entertainment that will be unmissable!
