At the middle of the Temptations vortex stands Derrick Baskin, in a truly satisfying turn as likable Otis Williams, the group’s sensible anchor and the evening’s narrator. Baskin’s Otis is the earthbound antidote to the flash of Sykes’s David and the grumpiness of Pope’s Eddie. Rounding out the classic five, Jawan M. Jackson plays bass singer Melvin Franklin exuberantly as a comically uncomplicated appendage, while James Harkness deftly portrays the broken spirit of Paul Williams, who drowned his insecurities in alcohol. Why not come and experience this unique journey at the illustrious Imperial Theatre in New York?
