Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat

One of the most popular titles in the catalog, this bright and breezy re-telling of the Bible story of Joseph and his Brothers was the first collaboration of young composer Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyricist Tim Rice. With a variety of pop styles including calypso, hoedown, French ballad, rock’n’roll, and many more, this show’s youthful and amusing attitude is well reflected in J Branson’s tongue-in-cheek backdrops and props, and in the highly creative costume collection.
