FIVE MEN. ONE DREAM.

A SOUND THAT WOULD LAST A LIFETIME.

From the creators of the award-winning Jersey Boys…Get Ready, ‘Cos Here They Come!
AIN’T TOO PROUD is the exhilarating new musical following the remarkable journey of THE TEMPTATIONS from the streets of Detroit to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

TONY Award-winning choreography and Grammy Award-winning music tell a thrilling story of brotherhood, loyalty and betrayal set to the beat of the group’s most treasured hits, including My Girl, Just My Imagination, Get Ready, Papa Was a Rolling Stone and so many more.

With their signature dance moves and unmistakable harmonies, THE TEMPTATIONS rose to the top of the charts with a staggering 42 Top-Ten Hits and 14 Number Ones. The rest is history.

Experience the sound of genius in the making. NOW PLAYING at the Prince Edward Theatre, London.
