Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat

 

What do you say to a colleague of yours when they ask if you’d like to watch a broadway show with them? My first instinct was to say, “no thanks”. I then realized that it might not be so bad; it’s been a while since I’ve seen a live show at the Center for Performing Arts. Next thing I know, we’re leaving a local pub and walking down Almaden Boulevard headed to the theatre. Truthfully, I’m glad I went because it ended up being an enjoyable next of couple hours.

“Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” is based on the “coat of many colors” story of Joseph from the Bible’s Book of Genesis. The cast was incredibly talented and the effects from the overhead projection made the famous Broadway Musical that much more fascinating. There’s very little talking in the show and most of it is sung-through.

The singing narrator of the show is Diana Degarmo. You might remember her as being a contestant on American Idol and finishing up as the runner-up to Fantasia Barrino in season three. In real life, among other things, she performs on Broadway and she’s married to Ace Young, who plays Joseph in the show. Both Ace and Diana have phenomenal voices. “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” is currently on a national tour. The visual effects, the comedic scenes, the musical numbers, and the story as a whole, really made it a memorable Sunday evening. I highly recommend going to see it when it’s in the area.
