About Ain’t Too Proud

Get ready, ‘cause here they come! Relax at an evening of soulful Motown music in the West End. Ain’t Too Proud: The Life and Times of the Temptations tickets are available on London Theatre now.

The Ain’t Too Proud musical charts the rise of the “Classic Five” Temptations members: Otis Williams, Melvin Franklin, Paul Williams, Eddie Kendricks, and David Ruffin. In 1969, The Temptations were the first Motown act to win a Grammy Award for “Cloud Nine.” However, their private lives were anything but cloud nine.

Away from the spotlight, the quintet dealt with personal illnesses and individual vices, as well as personal and political conflicts that jeopardised their future. Follow the fivesome as they take over the music charts, the Motown scene, and ultimately the world.

Ain't Too Proud puts the Temptations on the Broadway map. To date, the Temptations have over 40 studio albums, three Grammy Awards, and a spot in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. So who could write a Temptations story about the Detroit-based group? Call in Detroit-based playwright Dominique Morisseau. She previously wrote The Detroit Project, a collection of three plays including the Tony-nominated play Skeleton Crew. Now, she immortalises the Temptations on stage.

Motown and The Tempations are hot commodities. So it's no surprise that when Ain't Too Proud premiered in California in 2017, the show extended twice due to audience demand. After performances in Washington DC, Los Angeles, and Toronto, Ain't Too Proud eventually opened on Broadway in 2019, and picked up 12 Tony Award nominations. Find out about Ain't Too Proud in London.

What did The Temptations sing?

The Ain’t Too Proud musical includes plenty of the number 1 Temptations hits, such as “Just My Imagination,” “Papa Was a Rollin’ Stone”, and “My Girl.” Add the Temptations songs with Sergio Trulijio’s Tony Award-winning choreography, and the end result is a slick tribute to Motown and 1960s Detroit.

What characters are in Ain't Too Proud?

The Ain't Too Proud musical includes the five Temptations members: Otis Williams, Melvin Franklin, Paul Williams, Eddie Kendricks, and David Ruffin. Influential figures from the Motown era also appear, such as record producer Berry Gordy, singers Diana Ross, Tammi Terrell, and Smokey Robinson.
