Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat will receive a 50th anniversary concert staging at Lincoln Center’s David Geffen Hall February 17, 2020.
Manhattan Concert Productions is producing Joseph as its 10th anniversary production, following popular stagings of The Secret Garden, Ragtime, Titanic, Parade, and Crazy for You—each of which have featured a principal cast of Broadway stars backed by a chorus of over 200 and the New York City Chamber Music Orchestra.
Casting and creative team will be announced at a later date.
Joseph re-imagines the biblical story of Joseph, his father Jacob, his 11 brothers, and his coat of many colors as a pop vaudeville show. Joseph had its U.S. premiere in May 1970 at the College of the Immaculate Conception in Douglastown, New York. The musical premiered on Broadway in 1982.
Tickets will go on sale this summer.
A West End revival of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat begins June 27 at the London Palladium ahead of a July 11 opening night.
Lloyd Webber’s music will also be celebrated at New Jersey’s Paper Mill Playhouse early next year with the world-premiere retrospective Unmasked, based on the composer's recent memoir.
