Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat

The perennially sold out production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat at the Arvada Center is in the midst of its fifth and final season. If you haven't seen this show and enjoy inventive choreography, exuberant dancing, great voices, dazzling costumes, and high camp you'd better get your tickets soon.

The music and book by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice mixes country and western, calypso, French cabaret, and pop-rock melodies to retell the Old Testament story of Joseph and his fractious brothers. As always, director/choreographer Jeffrey Gallegos has added a few new twists to this high energy celebration, bolstering the general hilarity.

The zesty and dynamic chanteuse, Beth Malone, reprises the role of the narrator, while the handsome and accomplished tenor Charles Langley once again stars as Joseph. Replete with pyrotechnics and polished live accompaniment, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is an extravaganza of talent and energy. It runs through January 6th. 303-431-3939.
