Darren Day has left Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat at the New London Theatre due to "vocal problems" . (Although rumours suggest he quit the show because of his split from former Hear'Say singer Suzanne Shaw, his co-star in the production).
He is replaced by Simon Gorton.
The show, which closes 2 April 2005, continues to feature Suzanne Shaw as the 'Narrator'.
This production by Bill Kenwright, who also directs, is designed by Sean Cavanagh, choreographed by Henry Matcalfe with lighting by Nick Richings.
This production opened to good notices from the popular press in March 2003: LYN GARDNER for THE GUARDIAN says,"Full of bare-faced cheek and a highly developed sense of fun." SARAH HEMMING of FINANCIAL TIMES says, "Enjoyably brash and cheeky staging." PAUL TAYLOR for THE INDEPENDENT says, "Wonderfully warm-hearted, scenically lavish, and deliriously droll revival." JOHN MARTLAND for THE STAGE says, "An enjoyable experience ....top-notch production."
The musical retells the biblical story of Joseph, his eleven brothers and the coat of many colors.
