The Cleveland Plain Dealer raved, “Joseph thrills with Diana DeGarmo and Ace Young. The new production is an exuberant success that stays true to all of the original’s joyfulness, humor and fantastic songs while subtly updating it for a 2014 audience.”
Husband-and-wife team Ace Young and Diana DeGarmo first met when they shared the Broadway stage in the 2009 revival of "Hair." “I am so excited to be starring as ‘Joseph’ alongside Diana,” said Ace. “It’s great to be back on stage! I too am so excited to star alongside Ace in the very role I once looked up to years ago as a child in the choir,” added Diana.
One of the most enduring 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 the Independent Presenters Network, 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, music supervision by David Kreppel and music direction by Wayne Green.
