Created by the legendary Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is one of the most adored musicals in Broadway history. And with its family-friendly storyline, universal themes and catchy music, it’s also one of the industry’s most lucrative productions.
“Joseph remains so popular because it presents a timeless message about faith and forgiveness – something we need today more than ever,” says Mustakas. “This is family entertainment at its best. It's extremely funny, warm and uplifting … it's guaranteed to leave you singing your way out of the theatre.”
The irresistible tale chronicles the trials and triumphs of Joseph, Israel's favorite son. Sold into slavery by his eleven jealous brothers when their father, Jacob, gives him a coat of many colours, Joseph capitalizes on his ability to interpret dreams and in so doing rises above his bleak circumstances to become one of the most powerful men in Egypt.
Explosive dance numbers, plenty of laughter, unforgettable tunes like “Go, Go Joseph,” “Any Dream Will Do,” and “Close Every Door” make Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat a vibrant feast for the eyes and ears. From Calypso to Jazz to Western, the types of music are as varied and electrifying as the multitude of colours on Joseph’s famous coat.
