"Coat of Many Colors" is a mistranslation. According to the highly-respected eleventh-century scholar Muhammed Ibn Ibrahim Al-Thalabi, the original words were "garment with marks." (One of the King James Bible translators added the word "many"). It is not certain what the "marks" were or what they represented. Some scholars believe that the garment may have been a symbol of Jacob's position as High Priest of the tribe, and that the older brothers were angry because Jacob chose to pass them over and give Joseph the priesthood instead of them.

What a gem this new version of Joseph is - a sparkling, lively version of the Lloyd-Webber classic. The songs are performed to perfection and the sets and choreography are brilliant. A strong cast of the famous and the not-so famous (the best of whom by far is Maria Friedman, who, as the Narrator, has a wonderful voice and great stage presence) make the production a delight to watch and sing along to! Children and adults alike will adore its great songs, funky choreography, and humour, making it one for all the family. Donny Osmond doesn't half make a good Joseph too (much to my surprise!).
