Sheridan Smith, Jason Donovan and Jac Yarrow react to Joseph opening night at The Palladium
Laurence Connor's reimagining of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice's show has opened at the London Palladium
Laurence Connor's production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat has opened at the London Palladium and we were on hand on opening night to chat with some of the cast and creatives.
The production stars newcomer Jac Yarrow in the title role alongside Sheridan Smith as The Narrator and Jason Donovan as Pharaoh.
Directed by Connor, this new production of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice's musical marks 50 years since the piece was first released as a concept album.
It has choreography from JoAnn M Hunter, design from Morgan Large, lighting from Ben Cracknell and sound from Gareth Owen. Casting is by Stuart Burt with children's casting by Joanne Hawes.
The show has run in the West End, Broadway and all over the world. Songs included in the piece are "Any Dream Will Do", "Close Every Door To Me", "Jacob and Sons", "There's One More Angel In Heaven" and "Go Go Go Joseph". It tells the biblical story of Joseph and his eleven brothers.
