With a crash of drums and a flash of light, Joseph and the
Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat returns to Chanhassen Dinner Theatres in his
splendid coat of many colors. The most popular production in CDT’s history is a
rollicking retelling of the beloved Bible story that sings out to young and old
alike. It’s a dazzling, infectiously-fun evening of theatre with music styles
from country to calypso, rock’n’roll to reggae and tango to techno! Including
22 major production numbers filled with colorful costuming, creative staging
and puppetry, upbeat music, delightful humor and exuberant choreography.
JOSEPH was the first work of the widely acclaimed composer and lyricist team, Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber, creators of such musical blockbusters as Evita, Jesus Christ Superstar, and Cats. A secular version of the powerful, beloved story of Joseph, favorite son of Jacob is given a splendid coat of many colors. His jealous brothers throw him in a pit, sell him to slave traders bound for Egypt, and trick Jacob into believing Joseph has been killed. Through a series of ordained circumstances including his uncanny gift to interpret dreams, Joseph is brought into the house of the great Pharaoh, where he is elevated to ruler status. Through his dreams, Joseph leads the people of Egypt into a food store-housing plan to see them through a long and terrible famine, which eventually brings Joseph and his brothers face-to-face after a 25-year separation.
Resident Artistic Director Michael Brindisi will once again collaborate with his creative team on the 2013 staging of JOSEPH: Choreographer Tamara Kangas Erickson, Musical Director Andrew Cooke, Set Designer Nayna Ramey, Costume Designer Rich Hamson, Lighting Designer Sue Ellen Berger, Sound Designer Russ Haynes, and Production Stage Manager Susan Magnuson.
