Jospeh and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat

Marina Theatre, Lowestoft

A slice of the West End came to the stage at the Marina Theatre in Lowestoft last night, with the Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice musical Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat produced by Bill Kenwright.

The show began after an early curtain rise caught the cast by surprise, causing them to sprint for their places before it descended again just as suddenly.

Almost everyone will know the story of Joseph, how his father idolised him above his eleven brothers and gave him a coat of many colours and how Joseph's jealous brothers sold him into slavery.

What a fantastic show this is - full of energy and comedy with a clever mix of musical styles from country and western to gospel to a great Elvis impression by Marlon Moore as Pharaoh.

The cast was brilliantly led by Craig Adams as Joseph and Henry Metcalfe as Jacob/Potiphar, supported by a strong cast and the youngsters from the Broadland Youth Choir.
