It is a light hearted musical show based on the “coat of many colors” depicting the story of Joseph from the Hebrew Bible. The show was first presented on 1st March, 1968 at Colet Court School, London. Initially the concept was presented as a pop cantata, lasting fifteen minutes. It was then later on adapted as a musical film in 1999, starring Donny Osmond. The element that made Joseph stand out amongst other British musical theatre shows was that it was being sung-through almost entirely; it hardly had any spoken dialogue.
