Jawan M. Jackson is an audience favorite as the kind, deep-voiced Temptation Melvin Franklin in the 12-time Tony Award-nominated bio-musical Ain't Too Proud—The Life and Times of The Temptations. Coincidentally, Jawan made his Broadway debut playing Melvin in the musical Motown, though in Ain't Too Proud, Jawan gets to explore Melvin's start in the music industry and his long tenure as a Temptation. BroadwayBox dropped by Jawan's dressing room at the Imperial Theatre for a rapid-fire Q&A with the rising stage star. Get to know Jawan as he talks about his breakout performance in Ain't Too Proud, his musical obsessions, and the whirlwind experience of being in a hit musical.
