Film Flam Flummox

En route to Broadway after its premiere engagement in Berkeley last summer and a run in Washington, D.C. earlier this year, the Motown music-driven jukebox bio-musical Ain't Too Proud: The Life and Times of The Temptations enjoyed its Southern California premiere last night, Friday, August 24, at the Ahmanson Theatre. Joining the celebrated creative crew of librettist Dominique Morisseau and director Des McAnuff for the big Tinseltown unveiling were the last surviving original group member, Otis Williams--on whose memoir the show is based--and a wide array of luminaries from every sphere of the entertainment industry, as seen below.

Ain't Too Proud is now playing at the Ahmanson Theatre in downtown Los Angeles through Sunday, September 30; the company then moves on to Toronto before landing at the Imperial Theatre on Broadway in spring 2019.
