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.
Linzi Hateley is scheduled to perform as the Narrator on the following performances: Saturday 17th July Matinee and Evening, Wednesday 18th August Matinee, Sunday 22nd August 5pm, Wednesday 25th August 2.30pm, Saturday 28th August Matinee and Evening, Sunday 29th August Matinee and Evening, Wednesday 1st September Matinee, Saturday 4th September Matinee.

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
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
