Why See Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat?
The dreamcoat makes its way to Chicago!
Kicking off the 2017/18 Drury Lane season at Oakbrook Terrace is the seminal worldwide hit musical Joseph, the 1973 musical from Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice. Performed and produced by the talented cast and creative teams of this local company, Joseph and the Technicolor Dreamcoat is the fable of lost innocence, jealousy and the power of redemption, set to the instantly recognizable genre-blending score that includes classics such as Any Dream Will Do, and Close Every Door.
Poor Poor Joseph, what you gonna do?
Based on the famous story in the Book of Genesis, Joseph is the 12th and favorite son of Jacob, a poor farmer who dotes on the sensitive and clever boy. To show his devotion, Jacob bestows him with a marvelous coat of many colors, which enrages his other brothers. Incredibly jealous, they hatch a plot to get rid of him, taking his coat and selling him as a slave to some passing Ishmaelites.
Enduring more trouble, Joseph finds himself in jail. When all hope seems lost, he discovers something extraordinary; he can interpret dreams! Suddenly, he finds himself in the service of the Pharaoh, who's heard about his talents, and wants his help.
