It was a wild night at Tuesday’s “Ain’t Too Proud” preview.
The critics were in the house for the new The Temptations musical, so the producers and creators were on edge. They almost fainted when Washington Post critic Peter Marks took his aisle seat and it collapsed. The house crew rushed to repair it before curtain.
Marks tweeted: “The saying ‘Please take your seat’ acquired new meaning at the Imperial Theatre … Mine fell apart.”
There was another commotion during the first act, when Michael David, the Tony-winning producer of "Jersey Boys," jumped out of his seat and ran up the aisle, followed by his wife and some of their friends.
