About the showThe London Palladium’s all-star revival of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat will return in 2020. With the 2019 run securing rave reviews and a star-studded cast, this masterpiece from Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice remains a classic of musical theatre.
First produced as a concept album, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is the tale of Joseph, the favourite son of Jacob. In this Biblical story, Joseph is betrayed and sold into slavery by his eleven jealous brothers.
Featuring a soaring score including “Any Dream Will Do” and “Go Go Go Joseph”, the musical has been staged in over 80 countries and won numerous awards.
Whilst casting for Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat has always been a glitzy affair, the London Palladium pulled out all the stops in 2019, securing Jason Donovan as the Pharaoh and Sheridan Smith as the Narrator. They supported recent graduate Jac Yarrow in a stunning professional debut as Joseph.
Casting for the 2020 revival is yet to be confirmed, but it has been announced that Jason Donovan and Jac Yarrow will return in their roles from the 2019 production.
Creators Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice enjoyed a ten-year collaborative relationship that produced Joseph, Jesus Christ Superstar and Evita. Their work is brought to life in this staging by director Laurence Connor (Miss Saigon on the West End and Broadway).
An epic journey across the desert, life-affirming songs and a dazzling coat of many colours: Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat at the London Palladium is a must-see event. It opens on 2 July 2020.
