Enjoy Motown Hits with Ain’t Too Proud Tickets

Legendary Motown quintet The Temptations come to life in this electrifying jukebox musical that bops to the beat of hits such as “My Girl”, “Just My Imagination” and “Papa Was a Rolling Stone.” Get ready to discover the true story behind the famous group, from fame to feuds, in Ain’t Too Proud at the Prince Edward Theatre.

What is Ain’t Too Proud about?

Ain’t Too Proud charts The Temptations’ story from humble beginnings on the streets of Detroit, to rock & roll icons in a politically turbulent era of US history.

The Temptations’ signature dance moves and impeccable harmonies helped them rise to the top of the charts 0 with 42 Top Ten Hits - and they seemed to have it all. But behind the scenes several members of the groupstruggled with addiction, alcoholism and the pressures of fame. Personal and political conflicts also threatened to tear the group apart, but Ain’t Too Proud also shows how influential and timeless their songs turned out to be.

Tony Award-winner Des McAnuff (Jersey Boys) directs this toe-tapping musical, which has a book by Dominique Morisseau and choreography by Sergio Trujillo. Trujillo won the 2019 Tony Award for Best Choreography for his work on Ain’t Too Proud.

Best Seats

SeatPlan Recommends: Choose seats a few rows from the front in the Stalls to really appreciate the sharp choreography and soulful vocals at this energeric jukebox musical. Seats in the Dress Circle promise a fantastic wide view of the entire set, but for a real buzz and concert atmosphere as The Temptations' greatest hits ring out, Stalls seats are the place to be.

    Tickets FAQ

    Ticket prices range from around £36 to £180, depending on performance dates and availability.
    Tickets in the middle of Stalls rows H-N and Dress Circle rows A-C offer the best views of this acclaimed musical and usually cost between £150 and £180.

    For a jukebox musical like Ain’t Too Proud, centre Stalls seats such as L6 are really fantastic. Here you can enjoy an excellent view of all of the sharp choreography, and when the show ends and the audience is invited to get on their feet for the encore, you will feel immersed in the concert atmosphere. This row also has an aisle in front - an added bonus of extra legroom.
    The best way to get cheap tickets is to book a few weeks ahead to ensure the best availability in the cheapest price bands. If you are able to book tickets for a midweek (off-peak) performance, you can save up to 38% on your ticket price compared to peak times such as weekends.

    For this show, we recommended cheaper seats in the upper levels over the back of the Stalls, as the elevated height lends itself well to enjoying a full view of the musical numbers. For example, Dress Circle K24 has “a good view of the entire stage” and is often up to 22% cheaper than seats just a couple of rows further forward.

    Cheaper seats at the sides of the Stalls such as B30 and D5 are also a good value option if you want to be close to the stage without paying a premium. These seats have a few restrictions from the angle but are praised by SeatPlan users for being “brilliant” with a “great view”.

    The show has been discounted and included in some of London’s top seasonal promotions, so you can find savings throughout the year. Sign up for an Alert and we will let you know when the next offer is available.
