About Ain’t Too Proud

Experience the sounds of Motown’s greatest geniuses, and book Ain’t Too Proud - The Life and Times of the Temptations on TodayTix.

The Temptations songs continue to soundtrack our lives after 60 years, and now they take centre stage in the West End. Listen to over 30 hits, including “My Girl,” “If You Don’t Know Me By Now,” “Papa Was A Rollin’ Stone,” and the title track “Ain’t Too Proud to Beg.” There are other Motown chart-toppers too — get ready for the Supremes medley.

The Ain't Too Proud musical focuses on the Temptations quintet: Otis Williams, Melvin Franklin, Paul Williams, Eddie Kendricks, and David Ruffin. During the 1960s and '70s, they took over the world with their soulful sound, achieving 14 number ones and three Grammy Awards along the way.

Their story of brotherhood wasn’t always easy though: they dealt with illness, vices, and conflicts. But with their signature dance moves and unmistakable harmonies, nothing could stop The Temptations. Get ready, ‘cause here they come!

More information about Ain’t Too Proud

Otis Williams is the last surviving member of the original Motown group. He's honoured in the Ain't Too Proud musical. Not only did he collaborate with the show’s creatives, but he still tours with the Temptations today. When the show ran on Broadway, it earned 12 Tony Awards, and on Sergio Trujillo the Tony for Best Choreography. Watch out for all the slick moves during the show.

To date, 33 singers have performed under The Temptations name. Now, five West End actors add to the legacy: Tosh Wangho-Maud, Sifiso Mazibuko, Mitchell Zhangazha, Cameron Bernard Jones, and Kyle Cox.

What To Watch For:

  • Ain’t Too Proud reunites director Des McAnuff with Sergio Trujillo. The pair previously collaborated on Jersey Boys and Summer: The Donna Summer Musical
  • Even though this musical focuses on the Temptations, this show isn’t the first time they’ve been recognised on stage. The Temptations' songs also feature in Motown the Musical.
  • The book writer Dominique Morisseau was born in Detroit. Coincidentally, it’s where The Temptations also formed. Talk about authenticity!
  • One of the current Temptations members, Jawan M. Jackson, previously played Melvin Franklin in Ain't Too Proud on Broadway. Perhaps one of the West End stars will join the group in due course?
