About Joseph and The Amazing Technicolor
Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat initially came about in 1967 when Andrew Lloyd Webber
was asked by the music department at St. Paul's Junior School to write a "pop cantata" for the school's choir to sing for
their end of term concert. By 1970, the first amateur production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat in the states
was performed at the College of the Immaculate Conception in New York. The musical was a hit, and started to gain popularity
from schools and colleges in the region. It was so popular that the production was moved to the Royale Theatre on Broadway
in 1982, and it ran until September of 1983 with 747 performances under its belt. This production was the recipient of a number
of Tony Award nominations, and was notable for starring David Cassidy in the role of Joseph for several months.
Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat was re-staged at the London Palladium with director Steven Pimlott as director.
This successful production still managed to capture the hearts of fans after having not been performed for a while, and it
went on to win the 1992 Laurence Olivier Award for set design. The cast album also was the number one album in the United
Kingdom for two weeks in September of 1991, as was the single "Amy Dream Will Do." The show was also revived in the United
States in 1993 at the Pantages Theatre in Los Angeles, and at the Golden Gate Theatre in San Francisco. It eventually hit
Broadway at the Minskoff Theatre on November 10, 1993, and played for 231 performances. A new North American tour of Joseph
and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat will be starting soon, and it's bringing along American idol stars Diana DeGarmo as
