Booking & Theatre Info For Ain’t Too Proud – The Life and Times of the Temptations.

Performances of ‘Ain’t Too Proud’ will be at the Prince Edward Theatre which is a large West End theatre with three levels of seating and a capacity of 1711 seats. Each level in the theatre offers excellent overall views of the stage with the best seats being situated in the centre of the Stalls. The front of the Dress Circle is also a very good vantage point with rows B-D, seats 15-9 being particularly good for patrons wishing to view the stage from an elevated position.

Value for money can be found in the Upper Circle although these seats are situated fairly high up and may not be ideal for patrons suffering from vertigo. Alternatively, the loges on the sides of the Dress Circle are a good option for those on a budget looking for cheap tickets to Ain’t Too Proud. These seats offer side-views of the stage, but do not necessarily restrict the view .  The back rows of the Stalls section are also regularly discounted and offer clear views of the action.
