The first full-length musical by legendary theatrical team Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice, "Joseph" is a retelling of the biblical story of Joseph, his devoted father, his jealous brothers, and his incredible series of adventures. The musical was only 20 minutes long when an unknown 19-year-old named Andrew Lloyd Webber first created it for a British school choir in 1968. He asked his friend, Rice, to write the lyrics and soon they expanded it to 40 minutes and took it to the London stage. Since then, "Joseph" has continued to grow, both in time and popularity.
Filled with youthful energy, "Joseph" combines a wide variety of musical styles - everything from country to calypso to rock 'n' roll - in a series of memorable musical numbers. Described as a high-voltage extravaganza, "Joseph" includes such classic songs as the contemplative "Any Dream Will Do," the Caribbean-infused "Benjamin Calypso," the dazzling "Jacob and Sons/Joseph's Coat," the rockabilly sensation "Song of the King (Seven Fat Cows)" and the unforgettable "Go, Go, Go Joseph."
