Joseph and his technicolor dreamcoat review

Joseph and his amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat

Book and Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber, Lyrics by Tim Rice

At Palace Theatre, Manchester.

 

Date Attended: 23/10/14

Flashes of Red and Yellow and Green and Brown could be seen as the Palace Theatre filled in anticipation for ‘Joseph and his amazing Technicolor dreamcoat’ first outing to the City of Manchester.

The Biblical story of Joseph by Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber was a West End favourite before embarking on its first UK tour, starting in 2010, visiting some of the finest theatres across the Country.

The band struck up as the Egyptian scene began to set, getting the audience clapping along before the show had even begun. The young ensemble of Stagecoach Theatre School, Chester set the tone perfectly with their angelic voices.

The burst of colour in the lights and fine workings of the costumes were a feast for the eyes. Cowboy hats appeared during the casts’ rendition of ‘Close every door to me’ not exactly fitting with the Joseph period, but leaving the audience in a chorus of giggles never the less.

The whole show featured certain acts which would guarantee a laugh from the cloud, promising for an enjoyable time to be had by people of all ages. With a story of morals dramatised, it is certain to be a hit with parents bringing their children.

But the star of the show was X Factor’s Lloyd Daniels, the young Welshman got the crowd to their feet as he closed the show with ‘Any Dream Will Do’ causing the entire theatre to clap and sway in time to the popular hit.

If you want to take a trip to those Canaan days, Joseph and the amazing technicolor dreamcoat is the show to see.
