Donny Osmond Returns To Joseph

It's back! After two sell-out runs in London's West End and a delightful tour in 2022, Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice's Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat is being donned once more for another countrywide jaunt, kicking off in Edinburgh with the one and only Donny Osmond as Pharoah! Having now surpassed its 50th birthday, musical theatre fans will be delighted that Joseph and his extravagant threads are back on stage where they belong once more.

No stranger to the show, Donny Osmond played the titular role at various times from 1992 - 1997 and even starred in the film adaptation in 1999. Now swapping the coat for the iconic Pharoah's crown, catch him in the show this Christmas as it comes to the Edinburgh Playhouse for an extended run this December.

A modern musical classic

First fashioned as a musical concept album that was performed at Colet Court School, the success of the duo's next venture, Jesus Christ Superstar, saw a revival of interest in the show, with its first West End production following in 1973.

Since then, it has gone on to become an international megahit, a highly sought-after show that sees productions range from glitzy theatrical juggernauts to delightful local concerts, all capturing the magic of ALW and Tim Rice's exuberant music and storytelling.

What is the story?

With songs ranging from hopeful ballads (Any Dream Will Do) to vaudeville and rock'n'roll infused confections (King of My Heart and Benjamin Calypso among many others), Joseph tells the story as written in Genesis, of the youngest brother of 12 and the extraordinary journey he is sent on when his siblings set out to kill him for being his father's favourite. From attempted murder victim to pet of the Pharaoh of Egypt, Joseph soars with his singular talent of being able to interpret dreams and predict the future. But don't let all that murder stuff put you off, this is a joyful show brimming with heart, hope and a lot of showbiz pizazz!
