Tim Rice & Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor® Dreamcoat is an irresistible family musical about the trials and triumphs of Joseph, Israel’s favorite son, his father Jacob, eleven brothers and a coat of many colors. This magical musical is full of unforgettable songs, including “Go Go Go Joseph,” “Any Dream Will Do” and “Close Every Door.” One of the most enduring shows of all time, Joseph blends pop, country, and rock into an uplifting story of biblical proportions! Joseph began its life as a concept album in 1969. It was the first musical by Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber to be performed publicly and was nominated for numerous Tony Awards when it opened as a fully-staged musical in 1982. One of the most enduring musicals ever, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor® Dreamcoat remains vibrant, heartwarming and irresistible to this day.
