Joseph And The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat musical (1982)

This musical is the second work by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice, but initially it was a short fifteen-minute histrionics, which began to grow in time. The musical, like every decent child, grew and developed. Less than in a year, the brainchild of two talented directors was expanded to thirty-five minutes, and eventually has been modified to complete, full-fledged play.

The first performance was shown in 1976 at the Boston Academy of Music, in New York. Show arrived on Broadway after a long six years, in January 1982 at the stage of Royale Theatre. It has survived 747 performances per year and a half, including preliminaries. The official closing took place on September 1983.

Musical has been revived repeatedly, until 2014, when the show has gone round the US with tour. Musical includes 24 tracks, and show itself lasts for 90 minutes. In 1982, the show was nominated for six Tony Awards and for 3 Drama Desk Aws, but did not take a single victory. After one of the revivals of productions in London in 1991, the play was nominated for 6 Laurence Oliviers, but production took only one amongst them for best scenic sets (M. Thompson).

Even a film adaptation of the musical was appointed. One of the directors in 2013 stated that Joseph & the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat was adapted for the screen, and it's been discussed for many years. In 2014, Rocket Pictures received the rights to the musical.
Release date: 1982
