The venue was great! The sets and costumes were very good and the actor who played Joseph was first rate with a beautiful voice. With that being said, the direction was very uneven with characters singing behind crowds and sometimes in the dark,...continued

Description

Joseph, his father’s favorite son, is a boy blessed with prophetic dreams. When he is sold into slavery by his jealous brothers and taken to Egypt, Joseph endures a series of adventures in which his spirit and humanity are continually challenged. He is purchased by Potiphar where thwarting advances from Potiphar’s wife lands him in jail. When news of Joseph’s gift to interpret dreams reaches the Pharaoh (wryly and riotously depicted as Elvis), Joseph is well on his way to becoming second in command.

Eventually his brothers, having suffered greatly, unknowingly find themselves groveling at the feet of the brother they betrayed but no longer recognize. After testing their integrity, Joseph reveals himself leading to a heartfelt reconciliation of the sons of Israel. Set to an engaging cornucopia of musical styles, from country-western and calypso to bubble-gum pop and rock ‘n’ roll, this Old Testament tale emerges both timely and timeless. _

Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat_ stars Richard Bermudez as Joseph and Angeline Carr as The Narrator, along with a very talented cast including many other Grove favorites.
