Congratulations to AIN'T TOO PROUD for breaking L.A.'s Center Theatre Group/Ahmanson Theatre box office records for highest gross and attendance of a pre-Broadway attraction; and to AIN'T TOO PROUD book writer Dominique Morriseau for her receipt of a MacArthur Foundation "Genius Grant" for "pushing art forms into new and emerging territories".Bravo!
Critics rave AIN'T TOO PROUD - THE LIFE AND TIMES OF THE TEMPTATIONS is "a finger-snapping, hand-clapping new jukebox musical" (Variety) and "a force almost as irresistible as any of the powerhouse R&B band’s greatest hits" (LA Times). And The Hollywood Reporter writes "audiences will surely find a lot to love next year when this much-anticipated production about the Motown trailblazers opens at New York's Imperial Theatre".
