Great music but terrible storytelling. Performers are all terrific and the show is dynamic, but don't expect any earth shattering revelations or even much character development. Surprisingly hollow at the center.

Dominique Morisseau's book made this a better than average show of its type. Of course, everyone involved had great material with The Temptations' songbook. The audience was very enthusiastic. A very enjoyable evening.

One of the best musicals thus far. Right up there with "On Your Feet."

Quotes & Highlights

“Not just your imagination: The Temptations musical rocks!” — San Francisco Chronicle
“The music, of course, is divine, allowing the creative team to stage smashing renditions of ‘Ain’t Too Proud to Beg,’ ‘Get Ready,’ ‘If You Don’t Know Me by Now,’ ‘I’m Gonna Make You Love Me,’ ‘War’ and — you guessed it — ‘My Girl.’” — The Washington Post
“Sergio Trujillo’s choreography, full of dazzling splits and hypnotically synchronized unisons, lifts this jukebox musical above the ordinary.” — The Washington Post
“You’ll love the way they move, the quintet of men who make up the fractious membership of one of the mightiest of all Motown R&B singing groups. Each of the classic Temptations is allowed to make a vivid impression, all contribute multidimensional turns as pivotal figures in the Temptations’ evolution.” — The Washington Post
