ABOUT Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat
Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat returns to the London Palladium in a spectacular new production in Summer 2019 .
Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s colourful retelling of the famous biblical story about Joseph, his uncanny dream-deciphering abilities and his flashy jacket, is filled with popular songs, including Close Every Door and Any Dream Will Do.
Starring Jac Yarrow in the title role, Sheridan Smith as the Narrator and Jason Donovan as Pharaoh, this classic musical returns to the West End for a strictly limited season.
Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is booking from 27 June 2019 until 8 September 2019 at the London Palladium.
WHAT’S THE STORY?
Told entirely through song with the help of the Narrator, the show follows the story of Jacob’s favourite son Joseph and his eleven brothers. After being sold into slavery by the brothers, he ingratiates himself with Egyptian noble Potiphar but ends up in jail after refusing the advances of Potiphar’s wife.
While imprisoned, Joseph discovers his ability to interpret dreams, and he soon finds himself in front of the mighty but troubled showman, the Pharaoh. As Joseph strives to resolve Egypt’s famine, he becomes Pharaoh’s right-hand man and eventually reunites with his family.
