The smash-hit new production of Andrew Lloyd Webber's family favourite Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat returns to the London Palladium for a second summer season.
Based on the biblical tale of one Jacob's favourite son, the show follows Joseph after he receives the gift of a magnificent coat from his father. His luck takes a dip after he is sold into slavery by his dangerously jealous brothers. The story started out as a 1969 concept album before receiving its professional debut at the 1972 Edinburgh International Festival. It has since gone on to enjoy soaring success; it has been translated into a movie, toured extensively, performed by amateur and school groups and even sparked a reality TV series to discover the next Joseph for the stage. Its soundtrack is famous the world over, including numbers such as “Any Dream Will Do” and “Close Every Door to Me”.
After their acclaimed performances in 2019, both Jac Yarrow and Jason Donovan will be returning to their roles of Joseph and Pharaoh, respectively, for 2021.
Andrew Lloyd Webber is prolific in the world of musicals, with his biggest hits including long-running West End favourites such as The Phantom of the Opera and School of Rock. He is also multi-award-winning, and was knighted in 1992. Tim Rice, a frequent collaborator of Lloyd Webber’s, is one of Britain’s most highly celebrated lyricists. He too counts a knighthood and many awards to his name.
Laurence Connor (School of Rock) directs, alongside choreographer Joann Hunter, designer Morgan Large, lighting designer Ben Cracknell, and sound designer Gareth Owen.
