Joseph And The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat

Chanhassen Dinner Theatres
501 W 78th St Chanhassen

JOSEPH was the first work of the widely acclaimed composer and lyricist team, Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber, creators of such musical blockbusters as Evita, Jesus Christ Superstar, and Cats. The work is a secular version of the powerful and beloved historical story of Joseph, favorite son of Jacob, who is given a splendid coat of many colors. His jealous brothers throw him in a pit, sell him to slave traders bound for Egypt, and trick Jacob into believing Joseph has been killed by wild animals. Through a series of ordained circumstances including his uncanny gift to interpret dreams, Joseph is eventually brought into the house of the great Pharoah, where he is elevated to ruler status. Through his dreams, Joseph leads the people of Egypt into a food store-housing plan to see them through a long and terrible famine, which eventually brings Joseph and his brothers face-to-face after a 25-year separation.

  Joseph And The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat Reviews

Star Tribune - Recommended

"...It's not difficult to analyze why crowds like Chanhassen's "Joseph." First, the show is as light and sweet as the Lemon Mist cake that is new on the dessert menu. And it won't fill you up. We slid out of our booth at 9:44 p.m. - a personal record in 31 productions at Chanhassen. Not that brevity alone should be a criterion, but frothy entertainment is a welcome treat now and then."

Twin Cities Pioneer Press - Highly Recommended

"...The running time of about 100 minutes, including an intermission, makes "Joseph" ideal for youngsters just getting used to sitting still for extended periods of time and oldsters who can get cranky after sitting still for extended periods of time. Costumer Rich Hamson and set designer Nayna Ramey create a richly detailed, colorful world for the rapidly moving storyline and nonstop songs. The large cast delivers at each turn, too, with the sort of high-wattage smiles and energy lacking in at least one professional touring production that recently visited town (we're looking at you, "Flashdance the Musical")."
