Jason Donovan will return to the role of Pharaoh and Jac Yarrow will wear the Dreamcoat once again next summer at the iconic London Palladium.
Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat enjoyed a completely sold-out season for the Palladium run in 2019, with audiences giving the new production nightly standing ovations. Critics were also unanimous in their acclaim for the legendary musical.
Told entirely through song with the help of the Narrator, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat follows the story of Jacob’s favourite son Joseph and his eleven brothers. After being sold into slavery by the brothers, he ingratiates himself with Egyptian noble Potiphar, but ends up in jail after refusing the advances of Potiphar’s wife. While imprisoned, Joseph discovers his ability to interpret dreams, and he soon finds himself in front of the mighty but troubled showman, the Pharaoh. As Joseph strives to resolve Egypt’s famine, he becomes Pharaoh’s right-hand man and eventually reunites with his family.
