joseph and the amazing technicolor dreamcoat

Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s enduringly popular musical favorite “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” comes to television in a production starring Donny Osmond, Maria Friedman, Richard Attenborough, and Joan Collins. Beginning its life in 1967 as a 20-minute “pop cantata” for a school Easter concert, “Joseph” was revived and expanded in the mid-’70s and eventually made its way to Broadway in 1982. This lively interpretation of the biblical story of Joseph of Canaan has gone on to charm audiences around the world with its excitement, energy, and eclectic musical variety.
