Tell Me More
Based on the Biblical story as told in the Book of Genesis, Joseph is Jacob’s favourite son. He’s given a dazzling coat by his father, much to his brothers annoyance. Consequently, his brothers sell Joseph into slavery, convinced they’ve got rid of him for good. But Joseph starts prophesying — a new world is opened to him. Interpreting the Pharaoh’s dreams and now in a high government position, can he reunite with his brothers?
The Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice musical is argued to be one of the greatest musicals of all time. It’s been staged around the world and millions worldwide can recite the order of the “coat of many colors.” Now it’s your chance to see Joseph in London again.
