At the center 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 original five, Jawan M. Jackson plays bass singer Melvin Franklin exuberantly as a hilariously uncomplicated appendage, while James Harkness deftly portrays the broken spirit of Paul Williams, who drowned his insecurities in alcohol. Why not come and watch this incredible journey at the illustrious Buell Theatre in Colorado?
