WHAT IS IT? Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s hit family musical, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.
Produced by Bill Kenwright, the show features Keith Jack in the tile role. Keith was the runner-up in the hit BBC series Any Dream Will Do, which was produced to find a leading man for Andrew Lloyd Webber’s new West End production, and Keith, chosen from tens of thousands of hopefuls, came in a close second.
WHERE AND WHEN IS IT?
It runs until this Saturday at the Belgrade Theatre, Coventry.
WHAT DO THEY SAY ABOUT IT?
This colourful retelling of the biblical story about Joseph, his eleven brothers and the coat of many colours appeals to young and old alike with a score featuring a range of unforgettable songs including Those Canaan Days, Any Dream Will Do and Close Every Door To Me.
AND WHAT DO THE CRITICS SAY?
“A superb piece of entertainment. I was thrilled” - Daily Mirror.
“Trivial? You bet. Goosed to within an inch of its life? Undeniably. But it is amusing and agreeable and perfect for ten-year-olds, as well as grown-ups who have had a couple of sharp ones in the bar beforehand” - Daily Mail
“Joseph remains at its best lightly sending up the Bible story on which it relies” - London Evening Standard
“Joseph never loses popularity and the standing ovation on the night I attended illustrates this and it seems Kenwright will not be closing the door on this one for some time” - whatsonstage.com
