The Whiting Presents: Joseph & The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat

FLINT – The Whiting’s Broadway presentation series, “Bright Lights Big Broadway”, sponsored once again this season by McLaren Flint continues in early January 2016 with the national tour of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.

Directed and choreographed by Tony® Award-winner Andy Blankenbuehler, this production will take to the stage at The Whiting on Jan. 9 for two performances at 3-8 p.m.

One of the most enduring and endearing shows of all time, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is the irresistible family musical about the trials and triumphs of Joseph, Israel’s favorite son. The historic first collaboration of composer Andrew Lloyd Webber(Jesus Christ Superstar, Phantom of the Opera, Cats) and lyricist Tim Rice (Jesus Christ Superstar, The Lion King), Joseph blends pop, country and rock into an uplifting, technicolored story of biblical proportions.

Retelling the Biblical story of Joseph, his eleven brothers and his coat of many colors, this magical musical is full of unforgettable songs including Those Canaan Days, Any Dream Will Do and Close Every Door.
