Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat (#2509)
GREAT PERFORMANCES presents Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice's enduringly popular musical favorite. Beginning its life in 1967 as a 20-minute "pop cantata" for a school Easter concert, Joseph was revived and expanded in the mid-70s and eventually made its way to Broadway in 1982. This lively interpretation of the biblical story of Joseph of Canaan has gone on to charm audiences around the world with its excitement, energy and eclectic musical variety. Donny Osmond, Maria Friedman, Richard Attenborough and Joan Collins star. [116 minutes]
