Work that coat
The Dallas Theater Center is gonna bring some religion to the stage. But, you know, the fun kind. DTC opens the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat retelling the Old Testament story of Joseph and that fabulous coat of his. You won’t see it until you see the show. Through songs and a children’s chorus, Joseph goes from slave to ruler in the classic tale. But in this version, DTC incorporates music from rock to country and western in the mix. They even add in a Charleston from the 1920s. But you know when ol’ Joseph finally gets that coat on, he is gonna work it! Snap!
