Lyrics by Tim Rice
Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber
The Biblical saga of Joseph and his coat of many colours comes to vibrant life in this delightful musical parable.
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.
