The Temptations musical Ain’t Too Proud will feature hit songs such as “My Girl”, “Just My Imagination” and “Papa Was a Rollin’ Stone”.
Otis Williams, the group’s founding member and an executive producer of the show said today, “I am truly thrilled that our Tony Award-winning musical Ain’t Too Proud – The Life and Times of The Temptations, which was a smash hit on Broadway and is currently touring to 50 cities in the US, will be opening in the West End next Spring.
“The UK has always loved our music and embraces it as much today as it did 60 years ago. All of us involved with the show can’t wait to share this very special production with you all.”
