Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat UK Reviews
Newest Review: ... to star in the now closed, London revival of Joseph. The basic story follows the story of Joseph from the Old Testament in the Bible, but don't let that put you off if you are not religious in any way. It's a story of jealous brothers, our slightly arrogant in the beginning main character Joseph, and the story of how the brothers sell Joseph to be a slave in Egypt where the story takes a few twist and turns before they are all reunited at the end. This is told through some of the most well known musical number in musical theatre, such as Any Dream Will Do, Close Every Door To Me and not forgetting the Elvis style Pharaoh telling us about... more

This Technicolor Musical experience has rolled into Bromley as part of its tour, which is where I was last night. First off I do love the Churchill Theatre in Bromley - lovely comfy seats and lots of legroom in the stalls! But what about the show. Well you would have to have been living under a rock to not know the general premise of this show, mainly due to the BBC ONE show "Any Dream Will Do" which picked Lee Mead to star in the now closed, London revival of Joseph. The basic story follows the story of Joseph from the Old Testament in the Bible, but don't let that put you off if you are not religious in any way. It's a story of jealous brothers, ...

I have just recently taken my daughters to see the stage shows of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat - not the West End show which would have been far too expensive but the touring show which I feel very sure, having just seen it, must be just as good. I think that checking what is on at your local theatre is a great way of accessing the sorts of shows that are on in London for a fraction of the price. We saw this show at The Wycombe Swan which is a very nice theatre indeed. The show tells the biblical story of Joseph who was his father Jacob's favourite son which annoyed his eleven brothers very much. They particularly do not like it when Joseph tells ...

This is a great musical for all ages and makes a fantastic introduction for children in the the world of musicals. My 2 year old cousin was taken to see it and she then proceeded to wander around the house in her nappy for the next few weeks being Joseph and singing the songs - admit it you are going to know at least two - Close Every Door and Any Dream Will Do. As the title suggests it is a modern day version of the biblical story and is a feelgood, colourful show. It achieves this whilst still retaining the original story from the Old Testament. Amazingly Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice started to write this show in 1968 and originally it was only 15 ... Read the complete review

I am something of a musical buff, and have in fact seen Joseph twice before (in each case a touring production). Frankly I wasn't expecting too much of this one - a bit 'been there, done that' if you like. I was pleasantly surprised with elements of it. These days the show is all about the stars of 'Any Dream Will Do'. The usual star of this is Craig Chalmers, the blond Scottish cheery chappie who came 4th (approx!). We deliberately went when his understudy was on, Alastair Brammer who just missed the live shows, as he is a friend of one of our party. I have to say, I thought he really was excellent. He looked the part, sang every word clearly and gave the ... Read the complete review
