Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat

Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat

London Palladium · 26 JUN - 08 SEP

A New West End Production

“The best of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s early work in on show in London at the moment. Sheridan Smith and Jason Donovan are starring in the London Palladium’s big summer musical – which, amazingly, Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice started writing when they were still at school. And on top of that, Jesus Christ Superstar has just opened at the Barbican where it’s playing until 24 August. Wonderful to see Lloyd Webber’s musicals are still as popular as ever, 50 years on.”


Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat has become one of the world’s most iconic musicals. Told entirely through song with the help of the Narrator, the show follows the story of Jacob’s favourite son Joseph and his 11 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.

The re-imagined, brand new production will play a strictly limited 11 week summer season from Wed 26 June through until Sun 8 September 2019.
