A new production of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s multi-award winning musical is returning to The London Palladium in summer 2019 fora strictly limited run!
BAFTA and Olivier Award-winning actress Sheridan Smith stars as the Narrator in the eagerly anticipated revival, with Jason Donovan returning to The London Palladium in the role of Pharaoh, alongside newcomer Jac Yarrow in the iconic role of Joseph.
Released as a concept album in 1969, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat has become one of the world’s most iconic musicals, featuring songs that have gone on to become pop and musical theatre standards, including Any Dream Will Do and Go, Go, Go, Joseph.
Playing a strictly limited 11-week summer season from Thursday 27 June through until Sunday 8 September 2019.
Jason Donovan returns to the West End to play the Pharaoh, with Sheridan Smith as the Narrator.
Jason made his defining stage performance as the title character of Joseph in the 1990s, also at the London Palladium, in a sold-out 18-month run which produced a No.1 single and best-selling soundtrack album. It remains one of the most successful revivals of all time. Jason now returns to the show as Pharaoh, who rocks ‘Song of the King’ in the iconic musical by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice, soon to be re-imagined in this brand new production.
Jason joins Sheridan Smith, with the double Olivier Award winning actress recently announced as The Narrator.
Jason commented: “You never know the measure of a moment until it becomes a memory, and what a moment that was for me. Joseph was a ground breaker in 1991, and what a blast it will be to be back on the prestigious Palladium stage and be part of it all again with a brand new cast in this re-imagined 2019 production. I’m looking forward to breathing new life into Pharaoh and I’m so relieved he doesn’t wear a loin cloth!”
Please note: Jason Donovan will not be performing on 13th July.
