The biblical saga of Joseph and his coat of many colours comes to vibrant life in this delightful musical parable. Joseph, his father’s favourite son, is blessed with prophetic dreams. He is sold into slavery by his jealous brothers and taken to Egypt, where he endures a series of adventures that continually challenges his spirit and humanity. He is purchased by the powerful Potiphar, then thrown into prison for refusing the advances of Potiphar’s wife. While in prison, news of Joseph’s ability to interpret dreams catches the attention of the Pharaoh, and this begins Joseph’s rise from slave to second-in-command.
Set to an engaging cornucopia of musical styles, from country-western and calypso to bubble-gum pop and rock ‘n’ roll, and featuring high-energy songs and well-known powerful ballads (including “Those Canaan Days”, “Any Dream Will Do”, and “Close Every Door”), it’s no wonder this Old Testament tale has become a fan-favourite musical hit the world over.
