Biblical musical

art10092


The popular musical, Josepeh and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, opens a summer season of theater at The Muni. Set to an engaging cornucopia of musical styles, from country western and calypso, to bubble-gum pop and rock ’n’ roll, this production of the Biblical saga of Joseph and his coat of many colors, will deliver you to awe. Directed by Flynn Hanners, the cast and choruses are led by actor Owen Beans, who plays Joseph. Joseph is his father’s favorite son, a boy blessed with prophetic dreams. When he is sold into slavery by his jealous brothers and taken to Egypt, he endures a series of adventures in which his spirit and humanity are challenged. Eventually his long-suffering brothers unknowingly find themselves groveling at the feet of the brother they betrayed but no longer recognize. After testing their integrity, Joseph reveals himself, leading to a heartfelt reconciliation.
