AIN'T TOO PROUD:
THE LIFE & TIMES OF THE TEMPTATIONS
TONY AWARD WINNER!
GRAMMY AWARD NOMINEE!
(Music Supervisor/Music Director/Arranger)
Kenny Seymour is Music Supervisor/Music Director/Arranger for Broadway Bound Smash “Ain't Too Proud: The Life & Times of the Temptations”
The TONY AWARD winning "Ain't Too Proud" is an electrifying new musical about the life and times of The Temptations, the greatest R&B group of all time (Billboard Magazine). Five young guys on the streets of Detroit were discovered by Berry Gordy, who signed them to his legendary new label. With their signature dance moves and unmistakable harmonies, they rose to the top of the charts—creating an amazing 42 Top Ten Hits with 14 reaching number one. Through friendship and betrayal amid the civil unrest that tore America apart, their moving and personal story still resonates five decades later.
Kennedy Prize-winning playwright Dominique Morisseau (Detroit '67, Sunset Baby, Center Theatre Group L.A. Writers' Workshop 16/17 participant), Olivier Award-winning choreographer Sergio Trujillo (Memphis the Musical, On Your Feet!), and two-time Tony Award®-winning director Des McAnuff (Jersey Boys, Big River) bring you this thrilling new production featuring iconic hits including "My Girl," "Just My Imagination," "Papa Was a Rolling Stone," and many more.

“There’s hardly enough time to swoon over one fantastic track before a sublime 18-member orchestra led by Kenny Seymour strikes up yet another”
performed with power and flair by a first-rate cast and played by a fabulous 18-piece orchestra led by music director/arranger Kenny Seymour.
"Under Kenny Seymour's music supervision, the tunes come on gently and then grow harsher and more strident as the story reveals riots in Detroit, anti-war protests, racism, and the death of Reverend Martin Luther King Jr..."
