What’s Joseph About?

This is the first musical success created by Rice and Webber.  It is based on the Biblical story of Joseph and his coat of many colors as found in the Book of Genesis.  As the two-act musical plays out, it shares Joseph’s story of being a favored son of Jacob but resented by his brothers.  That resentment leads them to sell Joseph into slavery and he eventually ends up in jail.  Yet, his ability to interpret Pharaoh’s dreams wins him Pharaoh’s favor and Joseph rises to power in Egypt.   One day Joseph’s brothers who are starving come to him for aid, but they don’t recognize him.  He gives his brothers their comeuppance but eventually forgives them and grants them their requests while reuniting with his family.

Joseph is sung all the way through with little spoken dialogue.  It is a truly family-friendly story with universal themes that provide families great opportunities to talk about it after the show.  Joseph is a show that even younger children will enjoy it as the music is fun and catchy (you’ll be singing these tunes in your head after the show) and the show moves quickly.

Some of the musical highlights include Go, Go Joseph, Song of the King, Those Canaan Days, & Close Ev’ry Door to Me along with stand outs like One More Angel in Heaven and Any Dream will Do.
