Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat starring Donny Osmond to stream again from Friday
Here's another chance to see Andrew Lloyd Webber’s classic musical, as The Shows Must Go On's first season comes to an end
Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat will be available to stream for 48 hours only from Friday 10 July. This encore presentation will mark the end of the first season of The Shows Must Go On, which has seen over a dozen major musicals available to stream on YouTube free of charge. The series is set to return in August.
Filmed on the famed 007 Stage at Pinewood Studios in 1999, the production stars former teen idol Donny Osmond in the title role, along with Maria Friedman as the Narrator, Joan Collins as Mrs Potiphar, and Richard Attenborough as Jacob. West End favourites Alex Jennings, Christopher Biggins, Nicholas Colicos, and Sebastien Torkia also feature in the cast.
Donny Osmond made his TV debut at the age of five, before becoming a teen idol in the early 1970s. Often performing alongside his brothers as part of The Osmonds, or with his sister Marie Osmond as a duo, Osmond has found success across all entertainment media. Onstage he starred in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat for much of the 1990s, performing the role over 2000 times.
Based on a story from the Bible's Book of Genesis, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat marked Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s first musical collaboration. Performed for the first time in a 15-minute version in 1968, the show has gone on to become a classic title, continually performed by professionals, amateur groups, and schools around the world. Rice and Lloyd Webber went on to write a series of hit shows including Jesus Christ Superstar and Evita.
Joseph was most recently revived at the London Palladium in 2019 starring Jac Yarrow and Jason Donovan. That production is set to return in 2021.
