Following a triumphant sold-out season in 2019, the spectacular re-imagined production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat returns to the London Palladium in Summer 2021.
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.
Jac Yarrow and Jason Donovan will reprise their acclaimed roles as Joseph and Pharaoh, with further casting to be announced.
This classic musical returns to the West End for a strictly limited season 10-week season from 1 July 2021.
Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat will run Thursday 1 July 2021 until Sunday 5 September 2021 at the London Palladium.
Ticketing will reopen on Friday 19 June 2020.
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.
