Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat by Andrew Lloyd WebberWhen I first found this book it was by accident and could not believe what I had in my hands. Ive seen the live show and the on screen movie version with Donny Osmond, and this is a book based on them.
Where do I start? A really feel the musical coming through and at points was singing it in my head instead of just reading it. I did notice a lot wording that I felt was different than the show but it has been so long that I could be mistaken.
The are is hilarious. There is a lot of blonds and redheads living in Ancient Egypt. I didnt realize that was a colour combo during the reign of the Pharaohs. There is also a real modern sort of twist to the art that really pulled it away from when the story takes place. It made the whole thing feel kinda spoofy.
A good, funny read for fans.
Sign in. In this filmed adaption of the long-running musical, we see the story of Joseph, son of Jacob. The favored son, he is betrayed by his jealous brothers and sold into slavery and driven to Egypt. Though beset with adversity, Joseph perseveres through wit and faith and becomes the Governor of Egypt, second only to the Pharaoh. This all the sets the scene for when he meets his brothers who have come to Egypt to purchase food. The Narrator draws a school audience repeatedly into a very twentieth century "Technicolor" production of the Biblical story.
First-School MakingLearningFun. This is the story about a young man named Joseph. His father's name is Jacob, and they lived in Canaan from where his grandfather was from. Joseph was seventeen old enough to drive a car these days , and he had eleven brothers; and only had one brother younger than him. Can you imagine having eleven brothers to play with, or fight with?
Jacob has given Joseph, his youngest and favourite son, a multi-colored coat and his brothers are envious of him "Joseph's Coat". To stop this from happening they try to kill him, before changing their minds and selling him as a slave to some passing Ishmaelites "Poor, Poor Joseph". There he is bought as a slave by the wealthy Potiphar. He works hard and is promoted, eventually running the household. Joseph catches the eye of Mrs. Potiphar and although he turns down her advances, Potiphar sees them together and jumps to the wrong conclusion "Potiphar".
The story is based on the " coat of many colours " story of Joseph from the Bible 's Book of Genesis.
