Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat tells the Biblical saga of a boy blessed with prophetic dreams, his jealous brothers, Egypt’s Pharoah, famine, forgiveness and reconciliation. Brought to vibrant life by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice, this enduringly popular musical has charmed audiences around the world with its excitement, energy and engaging mix of musical styles—from county-western and calypso to pop and rock ‘n’ roll.
