It's been ten years since Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice's Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat was last in the West End, but now it's back at the Palladium for a limited run to celebrate its 50th anniversary.
It follows the story of Jacob's favourite son Joseph after he's sold into slavery by his eleven brothers. He soon ends up in prison after refusing the advances of an Egyptian noble's wife, but it's while he's imprisoned that he discovers his ability to interpret dreams, and ends up as the Pharaoh's right-hand man in trying to resolve the country's troubling famine.
The starry cast will be led by Sheridan Smith and Jason Donovan and includes some of Webber's most memorable songs like Any Dream Will Do and Close Every Door to Me.
