JOSEPH AND THE AMAZING TECHNICOLOR DREAMCOAT presented by The Carnegie through Jan. 26. I attended the opening night performance.
For this season’s family friendly production, The Carnegie offers a colorful and lively production of JOSEPH AND THE AMAZING TECHNICOLOR DREAMCOAT, a musical retelling of the Bible story, “The Coat of Many Colors.”
This production of the almost completely sung-through musical is strong on vocal talent across the board, led by the incomparable Tia Seay as the Narrator and Frankie Chuter in the title role. Director/choreographer Maggie Perrino keeps the energy high with tight pacing and enjoyable choreography. Great focus and supporting work by the teen ensemble and children’s choir.
A production of JOSEPH (directed by Maggie’s father) was the first musical I every worked on and the show has a special place in my heart. It was wonderful to revisit it and see a new generation experience it for the first time.
My rating: 4.25 out of 5.
