First Look: Ain’t Too Proud – in pictures

Production photos are in for Ain’t Too Proud – The Life and Times of the Temptations now playing at London’s Prince Edward Theatre.

The Broadway musical officially opens tonight having been in previews since 31 March 2023. In addition to production photos, producers have also release a new video from the show featuring a performance of Ain’t Too Proud To Beg by The Temptations.

Ain’t Too Proud stars Cameron Bernard Jones as Melvin Franklin, Kyle Cox as Paul Williams, Sifiso Mazibuko as Otis Williams, Tosh Wanogho-Maud as David Ruffin and Mitchell Zhangazha as Eddie Kendricks.

They are joined by Evonnee Bentley-Holder, Natalia Brown, Ryan Carter, Hannah Fairclough, Christopher Gopaul, Daniel Haswell, Naomi Katiyo, Akmed Junior Khemalai, Holly Liburd, Darnell Mathew-James, Simeon Montague, Posi Morakinyo, Sadie-Jean Shirley, Michael James Stewart, Toyan Thomas-Browne, Dylan Turner and Kevin Yates.

The show picked up the 2019 Tony Award for Best Choreography, and follows the remarkable journey of The Temptations – from the streets of Detroit to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

With their signature dance moves and unmistakable harmonies, they rose to the top of the charts creating an amazing 42 Top Ten Hits with 14 reaching number one. The rest is history – how they met, how they rose, the ground-breaking heights they hit, and how personal and political conflicts threatened to tear the group apart as the United States fell into civil unrest. This thrilling story of brotherhood, family, loyalty and betrayal is set to the beat of the group’s Grammy Award-winning music including the hits My Girl, Just My Imagination, Papa Was a Rollin’ Stone, Get Ready, Ain’t Too Proud to Beg and so many more.

Ain’t Too Proud features a book by Dominique Morisseau, and reunites director Des McAnuff and choreographer Sergio Trujilio following their collaboration on Jersey Boys.
