Following a successful revival and tour in the United Kingdom, Actors’ Playhouse is presenting it’s own revival of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, the award-winning hit that brought home eight Carbonell Awards for the company in 2000.
Created by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice, the team that dreamed up Broadway hits such as Evita and Jesus Christ Superstar, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is a fun, hip, colorful and tuneful adaptation of the well-known Biblical tale of Joseph. The melodious, contemporary score features familiar songs like Close Every Door To Me, Any Dream Will Do, and Go Go Go Joseph. A favorite among Actors Playhouse’s many award-winning musicals, the return of this colorful show validates that everyone’s a dreamer, and through Joseph, audiences will experience a legacy of pure entertainment for the entire family.
“The return of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is something we have considered for a number of years,” said Artistic Director David Arisco. “Now 12 years later with an entirely new cast featuring some of South Florida’s top professional actors and a fresh approach to our staging and storytelling, we are proud to revive Joseph, one of Actors’ Playhouse’s biggest hits in our 25 year history.”
Having had the opportunity to work alongside Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber himself, Josh Canfield, whose favorite credits include Claude in Hair (Germany), Baranaby in Sail Away (London), Luke in Next Fall (Caldwell Theatre), stars in the title role with Amy Miller Brennan as the Narrator and Nick Duckart as Pharaoh. With a professional cast of 21 adults, Joseph also features two rotating choruses of 30 local students from Miami-Dade and Broward County. Directed by David Arisco, with musical staging and choreography by Barbara Flatten and musical direction by Eric Alsford, the creative team for Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat also includes set design by Michael Amico, original costume design by Mary Lynne Izzo, costumes adapted for this production by Ellis Tillman, lighting design by Patrick Tennent and sound design by Alexander Herrin.
