Joseph expected to close 30 May 2009

Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, is expected to close 30 May 2009, after the show reduced its booking period from 18 July 2009 to 30 May 2009. (A Box office spokesman says it will close 30 May 2009, but the closure has not been officially confirmed by the producers yet!)

The musical opened at the Adelphi Theatre 17 July 2007, following previews from 6 July 2007, with Lee Mead playing 'Joseph'. It received positive notices from the popular press: THE EVENING STANDARD says, "It offers a seductive blend of camp, kitsch." THE TIMES says, "The show is a reminder of how splendidly versatile Lloyd Webber can be. Nor has Rice written jauntier lyrics." THE STAGE says, "Rice and Lloyd Webber’s score remains as infectious as ever."

Gareth Gates is currently playing the role of 'Joseph' to 23 May, then from 25 May Ricky Rojas will play the role to 30 May 2009.

This is a new staging of the 1990’s London Palladium production, which was directed by the late Steven Pimlott, and is once again designed by Mark Thompson and choreographed by Anthony Van Laast.

The show has music by Andrew Lloyd Webber & lyrics by Tim Rice.

The musical retells the biblical story of Joseph, his eleven brothers and the coat of many colours. Themany famoussongs include 'Any Dream Will Do', 'Close Every Door To Me', and 'One More Angel min Heaven'.
