What’s Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat about?
Following two triumphant sold-out seasons in 2018 & 2019, the new smash-hit production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat returns to The London Palladium this summer for a strictly limited run.
Joseph is one of the world’s best loved family musicals. The show was first released as a concept album in 1969 and since then it’s been performed on the West and Broadway, in international tours in over 80 countries worldwide.
Told entirely through song by a narrator (Alexandra Burke), the story follows Jacob’s favourite son, Joseph (Jac Yarrow) and his eleven brothers. The story is based on the Bible’s book of Genesis.
After his brothers sell Joseph into slavery, Joseph finds favour with an Egyptian nobleman, Potiphar. However, Potiphar’s wife also takes a shine to Joseph. Rejecting her advances lands Joseph in jail. While locked away, Joseph discovers an ability to interpret dreams. This gift is soon noticed, and Joseph finds himself before the mighty (albeit as camp as a row of pyramids) Pharaoh. Through Pharoah’s dreams, Joseph is able to predict and prevent Egypt’s famine and becomes Pharaoh’s right-hand man. But will Joseph’s gift buy his freedom and allow him to reunite with his family?
Jason Donovan returns as the roof-raising Pharaoh, whilst Jac Yarrow once again reprises the title character which won him critical acclaim and a 2020 Olivier Award nomination for Best Actor in a Musical. Alexandra Burke will be joining the Joseph cast as The Narrator in the sell-out sensation this summer.

This Olivier Award winning musical has also been nominated for multiple Tony Awards, Olivier Awards (including a win in 1992 for Best Set Designer) and Drama Desk Awards.

Five reasons we love Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat
1. Joseph was the first ever Andrew Lloyd Webber/Tim Rice musical to be publicly performed – without it, there would be no Evita or Jesus Christ Superstar.
2. Joseph grew from a 15 minute show written for a London school (Colet Court School) into one of the greatest ever West End musicals.
3. The show only has a few lines of spoken dialogue – everything else is sung, so it makes the perfect musical for the whole family.
4. Joseph’s first ever professional production was at the Edinburgh International Festival in 1972 – at an ice rink. That’s taking cool to a whole new level.
5. Joseph’s coat has 29 colours: red, yellow, green, brown, scarlet, black, ochre, peach, ruby, olive, violet, fawn, lilac, gold, chocolate, mauve, cream, crimson, silver, rose, azure, lemon, russet, grey, purple, white, pink, orange and blue!
