Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat to return to London Palladium
The musical, which tells the story of Joseph in the book of Genesis, was originally written as a concept album and received development performances at a school in London in 1968. It was later produced at the Young Vic, and ran at the London Palladium starring Jason Donovan in a career-defining role in 1991.
The London Palladium production was revived at the Adelphi in 2007, starring Lee Mead who won the BBC talent series Any Dream Will Do. He was replaced by Gareth Gates in early 2009, and the production closed in May of that year.
Casting for the new production, which will run at the London Palladium in the summer of 2019, is yet to be announced. Tickets will go on sale on Friday 7th December.
The new production is also yet to announce a director or creative team.
The musical features a classic score with music by Lloyd Webber and lyrics by Tim Rice, and includes the numbers “Any Dream Will Do”, “Close Every Door” and “Go, Go, Go Joseph”. The cast recording of the 1991 production starring Donovan spent two weeks at the top of the charts, as did the single release of “Any Dream Will Do”.
Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is set for a 12-week run at the Palladium in the summer, though dates are yet to be confirmed.
Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat tickets go on sale on 7th December.
