FABULOUS SHOW - REBUTTING THE HATERS
LOVED this show & these 1-star reviews break my heart. None of this show is more sexualized than the movie version: "It is not for kids for sure. Very sexualized." "Joseph was practically having sex on stage." As does Donny in the film! Potiphar's wife is skanky no matter how you spin it. In the film version, girls are wearing nothing but mesh & nipple pasties! At Drury Lane, the girls simply look *fierce*, wearing nothing more inappropriate than you would see at a cheerleading competition. "Guys dressed in drag was just too much!" Time to open up your *narrow mind* henny. These fabulous men SHINED in their showgirl looks (in which no inappropriate body parts were seen; they were more covered than a man at the beach!). There is *nothing* wrong with showing children that they can dress any way they want to, & I'm sad to hear this is a reason patrons are not seeing this family show. No more focus on the haters-every single cast member was amazing, talented & this show was phenomenal

SO MUCH FUN!
This interpretation of “Joseph” is a blast! The fact that the show was set in a different setting, Las Vegas, helped me to listen more closely to the lyrics and really hear the show’s message for the first time, and the cast is truly talented. Cast members sang, danced, and played instruments with such passion and energy. We sat second row and felt like we were part of the fun that was happening on the stage! Such a great time!

NOT YOUR MOTHER'S JOSEPH (LOVED IT!)
We have had a subscription to Drury Lane Theatre for 25 years & this was one of their best shows! Yes, this is not your traditional production of Joseph. We have already seen that & loved it. This show is highly creative with a very talented cast. It is quite funny & very entertaining. It is not the same old, same old production. If you appreciate live theatre & fresh ideas Go Go Go to this show!

NOT YOUR MOTHER'S JOSEPH
We love Drury Lane - have been here many times. Very comfortable seats. My friend read a review, and happened to mention it just as the curtain was going up - so I had a little heads up! To say I was shocked at the opening scene was an understatement! Definitely NOT like the original (one of my favorites), but still definitely worth seeing. It is a parody of Joseph set in Vegas (they should have changed the title a bit so people would know.) But definitely a totally enjoyable experience with great singing and dancing, and tons of laughs. The Narrator is extremely talented, and her impressions alone make the show a must-see. Many young people in our audience. The Vegas characters can be a bit suggestive for young kids, but probably nothing the teens haven't seen on tv. Nobody seemed to leave at intermission, and there were many laughs, claps and cheers during the show. I would definitely recommend it to those wanting a different take on the original with lots of laughs.

AN ELECTRIFYING REMIX OF A STODGY STAPLE
I loved this show, much to my surprise. Wasn’t really keen to sit through a Sunday School musical, and so was delighted to instead experience a dazzling high octane version, framed by a secular and sizzling Vegas theme. Had a blast.

GREAT! CREATIVE! ENTERTAINING!
I was expecting the original production and was surprised at first. I can see how the pearl-clutchers in the audience may have been surprised as it was not advertised as an alternate production. That being said, if you’re able to open your mind and heart, you will love this. The narrator, Christina Bianco, was fabulous! She sang songs while impersonating famous musicians and nailed each one. Joe and brothers were great as well with their song and magnificent dance. Costumes were resplendent and creative. I highly recommend this production.
