We saw Joseph and the Technicolor Dreamcoat at Hillbarn Theatre in Foster City last night. Neither of us had seen it before, or knew anything about it. We almost didn’t go because we’d heard it was based on a Biblical story and sounded overly dramatic.
Boy were we wrong. It was a lot of fun!
One interesting little observation: in all the songs that refer to Joseph’s coat, it’s never referred to as a technicolor dreamcoat. Just a colored/colorful dreamcoat. I wonder where and how the reference got Hollywoodized to create the title?
