West End actress Linzi Hatley joins the cast of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat at the London Palladium this Summer.
Hatley, who appeared in the original London revival of Joseph, will play The Narrator on selected performance replacing Alexandra Burke.
Hatley’s extensive West End credits include Nancy in Oliver!, Éponine and Madame Thenardier in Les Misérables, Roxie Hart in Chicago, Martha in the original production of The Secret Garden and Winifred Banks in the original production of Mary Poppins. She also played Donna in Mamma Mia! and originated the title role of ill-fated musical Carrie on Broadway.
Linzi Hateley is scheduled to perform on Saturday 17 July matinee and evening, Wednesday 18 August matinee, Sunday 22 August evening, Wednesday 25 August matinee, Saturday 28 August matinee and evening, Sunday 29 August matinee and evening, Wednesday 1 September matinee and Saturday 4 September matinee.
Producer Michael Harrison said: “This dream just keeps getting better. It was special enough to announce Alexandra Burke recently as the Narrator, but to now have the added bonus of Linzi playing the role at special performances – and to reunite her with Jason Donovan again at the London Palladium – turns Joseph into a dream ticket.“
Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat returns to the London Palladium this July for a limited Summer season. The piece is led by Jac Yarrow in the title role and Jason Donovan as The Pharaoh.
Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s musical is based on the story of the coat of many colours from the Book of Genesis and features numbers such as “Close Every Door”, “Benjamin Calypso” and “Any Dream Will Do”. Released as a concept album in 1969, the stage version of Joseph has become one of the world’s most beloved family musicals over the last fifty years.
Tickets for Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat tickets are now on sale.
Joseph is booking from 1 July 2021 until Sunday 5 September 2021 at the London Palladium.
