Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat is being revived in the West End once again. It was initially released as a concept album in 1969 and has now been performed in over 80 countries!
The original musical was produced by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice, and was first performed in 1982 in Broadway. Its a popular choice for school and amateur groups, being performed in theatres and concert halls across the world.
This musical is told by song and with the assistance of a Narrator as it follows the tale of Jacob's son Joseph and his eleven brothers. Joseph's brothers sell him into slavery and he becomes acquainted with Potiphar, an Eqyptian noble. But soon finds himself in jail after Potiphar's wife took a fancy to him.
During his time in prison, Joseph finds that he is able to interpret dreams, and this is made known to Pharaoh, who Joseph finds himself in front of. Joseph tries to end famine in Eqypt and become the right-hand man of the Pharaoh. He eventually returns home and rejoins his family.
The 2019 revival of this much-loved musical will star Union J's Jaymi Hensley as Joseph and actress Sheridan Smith as the Narrator. Returning to the musical, is the original Joseph, Jason Donovan! He will this time be playing the Pharaoh.
