At the middle of the Temptations vortex stands Derrick Baskin, in a wholly 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 iconic five, Jawan M. Jackson plays bass singer Melvin Franklin exuberantly as a comically uncomplicated appendage, while James Harkness deftly conveys the broken spirit of Paul Williams, who drowned his insecurities in booze.
