FUN AND DIFFERENT

After reading the negative reviews I was concerned about seeing this show. I was pleasantly surprised and delighted by the new twist. Do not go into this play thinking you will be seeing Donnie Osmond. If you go in with an open mind and take in all the talent on stage, you will have a really enjoyable evening. The vocals, dancing and acting were great. Some reviews showed concern about the "scantily clad" girls. Although I would not recommend this for a 5 year old, if this were a movie, it would have been rated as PG not even PG13. I've seen way worse on general TV. All in all, I left the theater smiling, happy and singing the songs which I've grown to love.

A SURPRISE

My daughter came in from college to see this show with me. We've both seen Joseph a few times and the Donny Osmond soundtrack is a fave on long car rides, so imagine our surprise when it is quickly revealed the giant pyramid on stage is the Luxor and the show is set in Vegas. We thought it a fun and entertaining twist on the musical and the vocals were outstanding, particularly the brothers' harmonizing in "Those Canaan Days". We did feel, however, that people who came to see Jospeh for the first time may have been disappointed.

IF YOU WANT TO BE ENTERTAINED &/OR LIKE 'SPOOFS' .....

Tonight we just saw Joseph & The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. If you expect the typical Joseph... Show you'll be disappointed. However, if you like entertainment & spoofs of shows/movies, you should enjoy this performance. Grant it the setting in Vegas is weird, but with all the other context in the show you'll understand how it fits in. Our audience tonight, Critics Night, laughed and clapped at the actors/actresses performance. My wife and I stay till the end and we're glad we did ! Songs, voices, choreography all good ! Suggest give it a try !!

KATHY FROM OSWEGO

I was very surprised by the adaptation — Vegas no less !! I enjoyed the play and would definitely see it again — laughed and laughed !! I felt there was a bit too much skin and a bit too raunchy, especially since there were so many school children in the audience. (Drury Lane has gotten a little too riskee in the last year or so !!) However overall the cast was wonderful and it was a very enjoyable time !!

JOSEPH

We took our family to the show last night and sadly .. this is not the Joseph of the 90's. This cast is talented and they used the original songs but that's where the similarity ends. To reduce this timeless story to a dream a guy has in Vegas left me feeling very let down. Those in our group who didn't see the original had no idea what the story was about by the end. Also, I would not bring children to this production. Guys dressed in drag (including Joseph) was just too much!

OVERDONE

There was so much going on, it took away from the story. I was looking forward to the original Joseph. Did not like this setting.
