Motown legends The Temptations have been making beautiful music for 50 years and now, they are headed to Broadway as the subject of a musical. Get ready, Great White Way. Here they come.
Otis Williams, the Temptations' leader and sole surviving founding member, told our pals at Billboard.com that the group is working with Broadway producer Ira Pittleman on a stage musical based on the 1998 NBC mini-series about the group's history. "It's still so popular and loved," Williams said. "I get calls all the time, like, 'Man, the mini-series is on!' and stuff like that. That's the catalyst, and (Pittleman) is waiting to do the Tempts story. I never would have imagined the possibilities of the Tempts life story going to Broadway, but it's wonderful."
