With their signature dance moves and unmistakable harmonies, The Temptations 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 new musical tells a story of brotherhood, family, loyalty, and betrayal, set to the beat of the group’s treasured hits.

One of the most successful groups in popular music history, The Temptations achieved fame recording for Motown Records during the 1960s and 1970s. The group has had two dozen members over the years, but has continued to delight fans with their choreography, distinct harmonies, and dress style.

The show includes such Temptations classics as “My Girl,” “Just My Imagination,” “Get Ready,” “Papa Was a Rolling Stone,” and many more.


The show had a series of regional theatre productions en route to Broadway. It premiered at California’s Berkeley Rep in the summer of 2017. The following summer it ran at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC. Next the show moved to the Ahmanson Theatre in Los Angeles, and then to the Princess of Wales Theatre in Toronto.
