Fifty years after the release of the original concept album, a brand new production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s first major musical collaboration, will be back in the West End in June 2019. So who do you want to wear the coat of many colours?

Opening on 26 June, the new production will have an entirely new creative team to be announced soon. The production will play a strictly limited 11-week summer season through until 8 September 2019 (press night is 11 July 2019).

Released as a concept album in 1969, the stage version of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat has become one of the world’s most beloved family musicals. The multi-award-winning show, which began life as a small scale school concert, has been performed hundreds of thousands of times including multiple runs in the West End and on Broadway, international number one tours, and productions in over 80 countries as far afield as Austria and Zimbabwe and from Israel to Peru! The show features songs that have gone on to become pop and musical theatre standards, including ‘Any Dream Will Do’, ‘Close Every Door To Me’, ‘Jacob and Sons’, ‘There’s One More Angel In Heaven’ and ‘Go Go Go Joseph’.

One of the stage’s most sought-after roles, stars who have previously played the title character include Jason Donovan, Phillip Schofield, Lee Mead, Joe McElderry and Donny Osmond.
