Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s multi-award winning musical returns to The London Palladium for a strictly limited run in summer 2020! Dramatising the story of Joseph in Genesis, the musical has received major West End productions at the London Palladium and Young Vic Theatre.

The musical is based on the Biblical story of Genesis, which tells of Joseph being sold into slavery by his brothers. It features songs like "Any Dream Will Do", "Close Every Door" and "Go, Go, Go Joseph". 

Following a premiere at the Edinburgh International Festival produced by the Young Vic in 1972, the musical transferred to the West End the following year. The next major production in London came in 1991, when Jason Donovan took what was to be a career-defining role at the London Palladium. The cast recording from the production spent two weeks at number one, while the single "Any Dream Will Do" was also at number one for two weeks. Jason Donovan left the production, with Philip Schofield taking over.

Various touring productions have played London over the last few decades, but the last major run was in 2007, when a revival of the London Palladium production opened at the Adelphi Theatre. Lee Mead took the starring role after he won the BBC series Any Dream Will Do. Gareth Gates took over from Mead in January 2009, and the production closed that May.

Casting for the 2020 production is unknown, but the 2019 cast starred:

Jac Yarrow, a recent graduate from theatre school ArtsEd, makes his professional debut as the title character. He joins the ranks of other actors to have previously appeared in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat include Lee Mead, Jason Donovan, Donny Osmond, Philip Schofield,  Stephen Gately and Joe McElderry. 

Sheridan Smith takes on the role of the narrator in the production, who keeps the action flowing throughout the show. Her previous theatre credits include Funny Girl, Legally Blonde and Flare Path.

Jason Donovan also features in the production, playing the role of the Pharoah. Jason played Joseph in 1991 at the London Palladium, and went on to have a huge pop career with hits such as  "Especially for You", a duet with fellow Neighbours cast member Kylie Minogue. He also had a number one hit with the song "Any Dream Will Do" from Joseph

Our Review of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat

4/5

Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is set, according to Tim Rice's ever-concise and anachronistically playful lyrics, "way way back many centuries ago/ Not long after the Bible began." Read more

5/5

The Rice-Lloyd Webber machine has done it again. This revival of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is raking it in, having assured itself of success with an army of ready-made fans through the BBC’s Any Dream Will Do search for a new West End Star. Indeed last night’s auditorium was packed full of ten-year-old girls who were cheering long before the curtain even went up. So much so that it’s already taken in an estimated £10 million at the box office and has... Read more

Any child of the 70’s knows the music to Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. Back then I was a rabid fan and remember driving my parents insane by insisting on playing the LP again and again and again. Now when I listen I cannot help but feel that the show is quaint and slightly old fashioned. A musical based around a Bible story written for children, a kind of Sunday school pop concert. Read more

More than one critic - myself included - reached for the superlative "a star is born" when describing the West End debut of Jac Yarrow in the title role of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat: "He received a spontaneous standing ovation on the first night at the end of his rendition of "Close Every Door"; but this is a performance that will open every door to him from here on in." Opening night was just four days ago when I met him backstage at the...

Friday, 12 July, 2019
Go Go Go Joseph... Last night was one of those rare moments when a brand-new star was born in the West End: Jac Yarrow. Even the missing 'k' to his first name is distinctive. As I wrote in my review here, the 21-year-old newcomer is "the stand-out star in the title role." His proud mother and sister were sitting right behind me at the London Palladium, and were both in tears when I glanced over my shoulder as he received a spontaneous standing ovation mid-show after he...
