The Biblical saga of Joseph and his coat of many colors comes to vibrant life in this delightful musical parable. Set to an engaging cornucopia of musical styles, from country-western and calypso to bubble-gum pop and rock ‘n’ roll, this Old Testament tale emerges both timely and timeless.
Patriarch Jacob lived happily with his dozen sons, but his favoritism for bright Joseph, symbolized by the gift of a spectacular multicolored coat, makes his brothers so jealous they end up selling him as a slave and staging his death. He rises in the service of wealthy Potiphar, though his adulterous wife is falsely accused and incarcerated. His gift of dream-telling, however, wins him Pharoah’s favor, in charge of planning for the 7 years of penury after 7 good ones he prophesied. When his brothers come to beg for food, it’s time for reckoning and nobility.
