This fantastic production of Jospeh popped and fizzed like a glass of multicoloured
champagne, filling the Corn Exchange with an infectious energy and enthusiasm.
With hands clapping, arms swaying and voices soaring throughout, the packed
audience was clearly having a fantastic time and didn’t want the night to end.
Keith Jack was faultless in the lead role, bringing vulnerability and comedy to the
part, while narrator Lauren Ingram held the organised chaos together and had a
beautifully clear voice.
The scenes featuring Joseph’s band of 11 brothers were brilliant, combining slapstick comedy with flawless choreography and spot-on harmonies.
Highlights included the cowboy-themed number One More Angel in Heaven and
the colourful Benjamin Calypso.
There were laughs throughout the evening with extra jokes thrown in to delight fans including pop-up sheep and a singing camel. Joseph’s Close Every Door was suitably sombre, but the mood was soon upbeat again.
The evening finished with a superb performance of Any Dream Will Do, featuring Joseph’s stunning coat, and the whole audience clapped and sang along, adding to the party atmosphere.
Joseph and The Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat continues at the Corn Exchange tonight and finishes tomorrow.
