Jac Yarrow and Jason Donovan to return to Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat
Jac Yarrow and Jason Donovan are set to reprise their roles in Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s musical Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat when it returns to the London Palladium next summer.
Yarrow was cast in the title role – his first upon graduating from drama school ArtsEd – and received critical acclaim for his performance. His next role is to star in pantomime in Birmingham before returning to the Palladium next July.
Donovan is also set to star in the return of the show in the role of the Pharaoh. The singer previously appeared in the musical at the London Palladium in the 90s in the titular role, and has also appeared in the musicals Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and The Rocky Horror Show.
Sheridan Smith played the role of the narrator in the revival, which is directed by Laurence Connor, though she has not been confirmed to be returning to the musical. Further casting is set to be announced at a later date.
Written by composer Lloyd Webber and lyricist Rice in the 1960s, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat tells the story of Joseph from the Book of Genesis, and has a score featuring songs such as “Close Every Door”, “Any Dream Will Do”, and “Go, Go, Go Joseph”.
Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat tickets are available now.
