A crash of drums, a flash of light! And the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre stage explodes with Atlanta Lyric Theatre’s spectacular staging of JOSEPH AND THE AMAZING TECHNICOLOR DREAMCOAT!
The first full-length musical by the legendary theatrical team of Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice, JOSEPH is a lovely, comic, and colorful journey through the Biblical story of young Joseph, sold into slavery by his brothers after his father favored him with a gorgeous colored cloak. His gift of prophecy saves him from an uncertain fate and helps him to rescue Egypt from famine. Animated with a high-energy mix of music and dancing from 50’s rock to calypso to country western to present-day hip-hop, this show is hailed for its family-friendly storyline, universal themes, and catchy music.
Described as a high-voltage extravaganza, JOSEPH includes such classic songs as the contemplative “Any Dream Will Do,” the Caribbean infused “Benjamin Calypso,” the dazzling “Jacob and Sons/Joseph’s Coat,” the rockabilly sensation “Song of the King (Seven Fat Cows),” and the unforgettable “Go, Go, Go Joseph.”
