“Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” at the Ford Center September 29
The Gertrude C. Ford Center for the Performing Arts is delighted to announce that the national tour of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, directed and choreographed by Tony® Award-winner Andy Blankenbuehler, will play September 29 at 7:30 pm.
Cleveland’s The Plain Dealer raved, “This new production of Joseph is an exuberant success that stays true to all of the original’s joyfulness, humor, and fantastic songs, while subtly updating it for a 2015 audience.”
One of the most enduring Broadway shows of all time, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is the irresistible family musical about the trials and triumphs of Joseph, Israel’s favorite son. The first collaboration of composer Andrew Lloyd Webber (Jesus Christ Superstar, Phantom of the Opera, Cats) and lyricist Tim Rice (Jesus Christ Superstar, The Lion King), Joseph blends pop, country, and rock into an uplifting, technicolored story of biblical proportions.
Retelling the biblical story of Joseph, his eleven brothers, and the coat of many colors, this magical musical is full of unforgettable songs including “Those Canaan Days,” “Any Dream Will Do,” and “Close Every Door.”
Produced by TROIKA Entertainment, LLC, the tour features Scenic Design by Beowulf Boritt, Costume Design by Jennifer Caprio, Lighting Design by Howell Binkley, Sound Design by John Shivers and David Patridge, Projection & Video Design by Daniel Brodie, and Music Supervision by David Kreppel.
Tickets start at $55 and are available at the UM Box Office, in the ticket office located on campus in the Student Union, by calling 662-915-7411, or online at www.fordcenter.org.
