The epic life story of central biblical figure, Joseph, is set to music by the legendary theatrical team of Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice. After jealous brothers sell the favored son into slavery, the tragic twists and turns that follow in Joseph's life display a true story that is stranger than fiction. With its universal themes and catchy music, "Joseph" is a great choice for all ages.
The full-length Broadway musical is a comical, colorful journey through the tragedy and triumph of a slave boy who would ultimately save a nation, and even have the power of revenge or forgiveness over his wretched brothers. Punctuated with unforgettable musical numbers like the high-energy "Poor, Poor Joseph," the Caribbean-seasoned "Benjamin Calypso," and the contemplative "Any Dream Will Do," Joseph will have you dancing in your seats.
Andrew Lloyd Webber is known for some of Broadway's most recognizable productions, including “The Phantom of the Opera,” “Cats,”and “Evita.” Joseph followed the wildly popular "Jesus Christ Superstar," and Lloyd Webber has been awarded multiple accolades for his creations, including Oliviers, Tonys, Grammys, a Golden Globe and an Oscar. "Joseph" was Tim Rice and Lloyd Webber's first collaboration, and it remains their most popular family show since 1970.
