ABOUT THE SHOW
This timeless retelling of the Biblical story of Joseph, a handsome young man who is his father's favorite child, is a musical theatre favorite, and Andrew Lloyd Webber's first musical. Written originally as a musical for a children's day school, it has become one of the most performed musicals of all time.
Joseph is able to interpret dreams, and, as his father's favorite son, is the bearer of an amazing coat. These facts lead Joseph's eleven brothers to become insatiably jealous. Thus, they sell Joseph into slavery to some passing Ishmaelites. After refusing the advances of his owner's wife, Joseph is sent to jail. Once in jail, he quickly becomes popular due to his ability to interpret dreams. The Pharaoh soon hears of Joseph's ability and appoints him to the post of Number Two man in Egypt. Years later, Joseph's now starving brothers arrive in Egypt and ask Joseph, whom they don't recognize, for assistance. Joseph, in turn, gives his brothers a scare, but eventually grants them all they desire, reveals his identity, and reunites the family.
JOSEPH AND THE AMAZING TECHNICOLOR DREAMCOAT contains some of theatre's funniest and most loved songs, such as Any Dream Will Do, One More Angel In Heaven, Those Canaan Day and Close Every Door. It’s funny and endearing storytelling makes this show a wonderfully, enjoyable time for all ages.
