BELK THEATER at Blumenthal Performing Arts Center
Ain't Too Proud – The Life and Times of The Temptations. The exhilarating new musical triumph that recounts the tale of The Temptations. Brought to you by the magnificent Belk Theater in the city of Charlotte on the Wednesday 19th January 2022. After shattering house records at both Berkeley Rep and The Kennedy Center, AIN'T TOO PROUD, written by three‑time Obie Award winner Dominique Morisseau, directed by two‑time Tony Award winner Des McAnuff, and showcasing choreography by Tony Award winner Sergio Trujillo, now brings the untold story of this mythological quintet to tantalizing life in the musical. Get ready — 'cause here they come! Click that buy button right now for a hip swingin’ terrific time at Belk Theater.
Buoyed by the clean choreography of Sergio Trujillo and thrill-a-minute performances by talented stars-in-the-making as Jeremy Pope and Ephraim Sykes, “Ain’t Too Proud” proves to be two or three cuts above the normal anthology pop musical. The adventure in branding for which some jukebox productions settle here makes for a far richer experience. This result is achieved courtesy of the storied group’s in depth melodic library, as well as book writer Dominique Morriseau’s dexterity at portraying each member’s journey. If you want to see all of this, then come down to the Belk Theater in Charlotte and catch a true classic that you are certain to love!
