It has been said that Donny Osmond ‘owns’ the role of Joseph in the musical “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.”
The big musical “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” opened the 2015 summer repertory season at Pagosa’s professional, intimate Thingamajig Theater, showing at the Pagosa Springs Center for the Arts.
“Joseph” is the story of a boy whose dreams come true in more ways than one. The uplifting message is that you could be that boy.
The Andrew Lloyd Webber / Tim Rice collaboration is loosely based on the Bible’s Book of Genesis — in particular, the story of Jacob’s eleventh son, Joseph. The fast-paced, all-sung production – full of parody and laugh-out-loud humor – is far removed from Bible Study class, yet appropriate for those who study the Bible, as well as those who’ve never cracked The Good Book.
In fact, this is a musical production for those who’ve never cracked the door to live theater. In other words, “Joseph” is a musical theater experience made for every Pagosa tourist, resident, man, woman, and child.
Why do I feel confident enough to make such a claim? “Joseph” exudes exceptional talent. It would be a sin to miss it….
