It’s theater season, and this year you can find TEMPTU PRO temporary tattoos in no less than 4 Broadway shows! Earlier this week you saw our tattoos for American Idiot showcased on WABC New York’s Backstage Broadway Preview. However, 2010 is far from being the first year that our temporary tattoos have graced the skin of the fine actors and actresses of Broadway. In the spirit of the season we decided to share some of our favorite appearances on the Broadway Stage.
We are excited to announce LA-based TEMPTU PRO makeup artist Adam Tenenbaum is currently being featured in a special artist spotlight on Iwata-Medea’s homepage! You may have seen Tenebaum’s work on the faces and bodies of the traveling performance group Zen Arts. “If high flying aerial acts, fire-breathing goddesses or snake-laden contortionists are needed…there’s a good chance we’re in house,” says Tenenbaum.
TEMPTU was featured Saturday on WABC New York Backstage Broadway Preview previewing the top shows to hit the stage this Fall Season. WABC’s reporters and Bernadette Peters go backstage for Green Day’s American Idiot stage show to speak with the makeup designers and TEMPTU PRO’s own Jenai Chin to talk tattoos, TEMPTU temporary tattoos. The segment includes an interview with Stark Sands the star of the show and why he loves wearing TEMPTU PRO temporary tattoos. Click on the video image to watch the segment.

American Idiot is the biggest sensation to hit Broadway in years. With songs from the creators Green Day there is no wonder why critics have called this musical a masterpiece and a must see show.
