Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is a reimagining of the story of Joseph, his father Jacob, eleven brothers and the coat of many colors. Told entirely through song, the musical follows Jacob's favorite son, Joseph. After being sold into slavery by his brothers, he ingratiates himself with Egyptian noble, Potiphar, but ends up in jail. While imprisoned, Joseph soon finds himself in front of the mighty but troubled Pharaoh. Joseph's solution to Egypt's famine elevates him to Pharaoh's right-hand man and reunites him with his family.
