Sway to the Rhythms of the Unforgettable Temptations

Get ready to groove back in time, Motown aficionados, because the sensational Broadway production “Ain’t Too Proud: The Life and Times of The Temptations” is shimmying its way into the Seanger Theatre from February 27 to March 3, 2024! I’m Karen Brem, the proud marketing director of the Historic Mardi Gras Inn, and I’m here to invite you to join us for a weekend that promises to be an unforgettable blast from the past, filled with music, fun, and food right in the heart of New Orleans.

Picture this: bell bottoms swaying, crop tops twirling, and platforms clicking to the beat as you immerse yourself in the electrifying atmosphere of the 70s. The French Quarter, with all its vibrant energy, is just a stone’s throw away from our doorstep, making the Historic Mardi Gras Inn the perfect base for your musical getaway. While we might not promise the glitz of disco balls, we do offer clean, affordable accommodations and a team that’s as warm and welcoming as the New Orleans sun.

Now, let’s talk about the stars of the show – The Temptations. From the gritty streets of Detroit to the glittering stages of the world, their journey is nothing short of a fairy tale sprinkled with soul and rhythm. With 42 Top Ten Hits, 14 of which soared to number one, their music became the soundtrack of a generation. “Ain’t Too Proud” isn’t just a trip down memory lane; it’s a deep dive into the heart and soul of brotherhood, family, loyalty, and betrayal, all set to a backdrop of toe-tapping, hip-swinging hits that will have you dancing in the aisles.

The Temptations’ story is a testament to the power of music and perseverance. From harmonizing on the corners of Detroit to being crowned princes of the Motown empire, their rise to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame is a tale of triumph, tragedy, and the unbreakable bonds of brotherhood. This production brings their story to life with such vibrancy and soul that you’ll feel every high and every low right along with them.
