Go, Go, Go Joseph!Hail Joseph! The Smash Hit Musical makes a triumphant return to the Wales Millennium Centre with X Factor winner Joe McElderry playing Joseph. The show is in its 36th year and is still playing to packed theatres worldwide. The Andrew Lloyd Webber spectacular tells the tale of Joseph, the twelfth and favourite son of Jacob, his brothers betrayal and his ultimate reunion with his family but in amongst all those family feuds you'll experience calypso, a little bit of Elvis and a number performed with a Parisian backdrop, I'm sure the Pharaoh's are spinning in their pyramids!
McElderry is superb as Joseph and with a great supporting cast the show is a winner. Narrator Lucy Kay delivers some powerhouse performances and huge respect for the twenty plus youngsters that make up the onstage choir.
Jospeph is one of only a few musicals that appeals to all ages and still pulls in crowds from all generations. The audience had big smiles throughout and it would be impossible not to foot tap or clap along with the shows livelier numbers.
Highlights include Close Every Door, Any Dream Will Do and the finale Joseph Megamix which is sure to get you up on your feet and clapping until the curtain falls.
Special shoutout to Lewis Asquith for sorting out this photo op and for being amazing throughout the show!
Joseph And His Technicolor Dreamcoat is at The Wales Millennium Centre until Saturday 13th May.
