Derrick Baskin Talks About The Broadway Musical, "Ain't Too Proud"

"Ain’t Too Proud" follows The Temptations’ journey from the streets of Detroit to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. 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. The rest is history — how they met, the groundbreaking heights they hit and how personal and political conflicts threatened to tear the group apart as the United States fell into civil unrest. This thrilling story of brotherhood, family, loyalty and betrayal is set to the beat of the group's treasured hits. The entire play is told through the lens of Temptations' front man, Otis Williams (Derrick Baskin).
