ATLANTE – The cast members are “proud” to bring the Temptations story to Atlanta:
You already know the songs “My Girl”, “Just My Imagination (Running Away With Me)” and “Ain’t Too Proud To Beg” to name a few. But do you know the story of the Grammy-winning band that turned these songs into timeless classics? The true story of Motown supergroup The Temptations is told through music, dance and drama in the Broadway hit “Ain’t Too Proud: The Life and Times of The Temptations,” which takes the stage at the Fox Theater in Atlanta from March 8 to 13 for eight performances.
The show, written by Dominique Morisseau and featuring the band’s most famous songs, debuted on Broadway in 2019 and went on to garner a dozen Tony Award nominations (winning for Sergio Trujillo’s choreography). The show’s national tour is now crossing the country and will debut in Altanta with the upcoming tour at Fox.
For two of the show’s actors, performing in Atlanta is a kind of homecoming. Jalen Harris, who plays Eddie Kendricks, considers the city a second home thanks to many family and professional connections here; Meanwhile, Michael Andreaus, who takes on the role of Motown founder Berry Gordy Jr. in the musical, was born in Atlanta.
We recently had the chance to meet these two artists before their tour stop here in Atlanta; to hear them, click on the video player in this article. And click here for more information on the Atlanta series of “Ain’t Too Proud: The Life and Times of The Temptations.”
