Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, opened at the Adelphi Theatre 17 July 2007, following previews from 6 July 2007, to mainly 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." THE DAILY TELEGRAPH says, "Lee Mead...looks good in a loin cloth, and has a powerful and expressive voice...By the end, however his vocals were beginning to sound a touch frayed."
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.
