Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat

Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat




The first Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice musical based on the story of Joseph from the Bible's Book of Genesis.


Story:

Joseph is sold as a slave by his brothers because of his ability to explain people's dreams. When the pharaoh calls on him to breakdown a dream, Joseph predicts a famine and is made the pharaoh's secondhand man. When the famine hits, Joseph's brothers come to him for relief and have to pass a test to prove they've changed before he'll forgive them.
