About the show
Based on the Biblical myth, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat follows the titular favoured son of Jacob as he is sold into slavery by his envious brothers. Possessing only the splendid multi-coloured coat gifted by his father, Joseph embarks on an inspiring journey to return home.
With instantly recognisable songs including “Any Dream Will Do” and “Close Every Door To Me”, legendary collaborators Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice (Jesus Christ Superstar; Evita) deliver an epic musical that remains internationally beloved. Its many accolades include Tony and Olivier Awards, a reality talent competition to find a new star, and performances in over 80 countries.
The show is a traditionally starry event, with actors including Donny Osmond and Phillip Schofield performing in the lead role. For the Palladium’s 2019 production, former Joseph Jason Donovan played the Pharaoh and Sheridan Smith featured as the Narrator. Newcomer Jac Yarrow assumed the legendary coat, earning critical acclaim for his professional and West End debut.
Casting for the 2020 revival of Joseph at the London Palladium is yet to be announced, although it has been confirmed that Jac Yarrow and Jason Donovan will return in their respective roles at least for a limited time.
Much of the creative team from 2019 returns, including director Laurence Connor (Miss Saigon), choreographer Joann M. Hunter and set and costume designer Morgan Large.
Featuring impressive sets, bold costumes and heart-stopping songs, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat at the London Palladium was a sold-out hit in 2019 and is likely to dazzle in 2020. Catch this strictly limited season when its doors re-open on 2 July 2020.
