Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat to return to London Palladium in 2020
Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s musical was directed by Laurence Connor, and starred newcomer Jac Yarrow in the title role to critical acclaim. LondonTheatre.co.uk’s Mark Shenton said Yarrow was the “stand-out star” in role.
Joseph, first performed in 1972, tells the story of the character of the same name from the Book of Genesis who dons a “coat of many colours” after being shunned by his brothers and sold as a slave to some passing Ishmaelites.
It features the musical theatre classics “Any Dream Will Do”, “Close Every Door” and “Go, Go, Go Joseph”.
It has been reported that Jac Yarrow is set to return to the titular role, but there is no confirmation on whether Sheridan Smith and Jason Donovan will reprise their roles as the Narrator and the Pharaoh.
The same reports suggest the musical is poised to transfer to Broadway in 2021, with producer Michael Harrison currently in negotiations.
Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat tickets are available from Friday 27th September.
