Why See Joseph And The Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat?
Joseph is back
It's back! After a sell-out run in the summer of 2019 Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice's Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat is being donned once more for another run in 2020. Having now reached its 50th birthday musical theatre fans will be delighted that Joseph and his extravagant threads are back where they belong once more.
First fashioned as a musical concept album that was performed at Colet Court School, the success of the duo's next venture, Jesus Christ Superstar, saw a revival of interest in the show, with its first West End production following in 1973.
Since then, it has gone on to become an international megahit, a highly sought after show that sees productions range from glitzy theatrical juggernauts to delightful local concerts, all capturing the magic of ALW and Tim Rice's exuberant music and storytelling.
Although the 2020 cast has yet to be announced, there are rumours that The Stage's Best West End Debut winner Jac Yarrow will reprise his acclaimed turn as Joseph.
Go go Joseph - The story of Joseph and his Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat
With songs ranging from hopeful ballads (Any Dream Will Do) to vaudeville and rock'n'roll infused confections (King of My Heart and Benjamin Calypso among many others), Joseph tells the story as written in Genesis, of the youngest brother of 12 and the extraordinary journey he is sent on when his siblings set out to kill him for being his father's favourite. From attempted murder victim to pet of the Pharaoh of Egypt, Joseph soars with his singular talent of being able to interpret dreams and predict the future. But don't let all that murder stuff put you off, this is a joyful show brimming with heart, hope and a lot of showbiz pizazz!
So, if you're looking to join the party and celebrate half a century of this musical theatre classic, this is one event you won't want to miss as it pitches up at the Palladium for another go!
Opening night: 2 July 2020
