Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat will soon be presented at the Tuacahn Amphitheatre. The famous musical play is based on the story “Coat of Many Colors”, which is about Joseph, one of the popular characters in the Bible’s Book of Genesis. This play is actually said to be the first ever musical by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Time Rice that was performed publicly.
History of the Play
Joseph was first shown at the Colet Court School in London. That was in the year 1968 and was performed as a 15 minute pop cantata at that time. The play was then recorded as a concept album on the following year, 1969.
Right after the next piece from Rice and Webber has become a success; Joseph received a stage production starting in 1970 and was then expanded into recordings in the year 1971 until 1972. While still going through various expansions and transformations, the musical was already presented at the West End in the year 1973.
The full format was recorded on the following year, and soon enough, it opened in Broadway in 1982. A lot of major revivals have been made since then and a 1999 film soon followed, which starred Donny Osmond.
Exciting Musical Show
The biblical saga of Joseph along with his coat which features vibrant colors will come to life in this very exciting musical show. The show is sure to entertain all audiences at the Tuacahn Amphitheater.
The play centers on Joseph, being the favorite son of his father. Joseph is blessed with having prophetic dreams and when he was sold to slavery by his jealous brothers, Joseph went through a series of adventures while being taken to Egypt.
All the adventures that Joseph has gone through along the way have challenged his spirit and humanity. Later on, he was purchased by Potiphar and thwarting advances from his wife, he landed in jail. When the news about Joseph’s gift began to spread, it reached the Pharaoh and soon enough, Joseph became second in command.
The play is filled with so many emotions. At the later part of the show, Joseph’s brothers, who were responsible for selling him, found themselves groveling at his feet, without knowing that he was the brother they once sold. Right after testing their integrity, Joseph soon revealed himself which led to a very heartfelt reconciliation among the sons of Israel.
Indeed, The Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is a musical show for everyone. It is perfect for the entire family as well. Lots of lessons can be learned from the story and the engaging musical styles and effects have made the show to become even more interesting.
