Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat Tickets

Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is one of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice's masterpieces, dramatising the story of Joseph in Genesis. In London, the musical received major West End productions at the London Palladium and Young Vic Theatre. 

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.

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".

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... 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... Read more
