Trivia:
Although the English Bible describes it as a 'coat of many colors,' this was actually the result of a translator's replacing the original expression with one that he devised. In fact, it is not known exactly what made Joseph's coat so special - perhaps it bore the colors of his clan.See more »
Goofs:
Continuity: When singing "Any Dream will Do" (reprise), during the lines "Give me my colored coat, etc" Joseph comes forward holding the coat in front of him. Two children dressed in red are standing next to Jacob and the Narrator. They are now behind Joseph. Just when the song ends, the cast crowd around him and then we see and overhead shot of a star. Joseph is now at the back with the two children, Jacob and Narrator in front of him.See more »
Quotes:
[first lines]
Narrator:Some folks dream of the wonders they'll do before they're time on this planet is through. Some just don't have anything planned, they hide their hopes and their heads in the sand. Now I don't say who is wrong, who is right. But if by chance you are here for the night, then all I need is an hour or two to tell the tale of a dreamer like you.
Narrator:We all dream a lot. Some are lucky, some are not. But if you think it, want it, dream it, then it's real. You are what you feel. But all that I say can be told another way, in the story of a boy whose dream came true. And it could be you.

This is one of the best musicals I have ever seen!, 27 October 2005
Author: limacrew from United States

I was reluctant at first to see this. I have a great deal of respect for the story of Joseph in the Bible. However I must admit that I was greatly surprised. The cast was perfect, and the music was great. The comedy that was created was incredible. The manner in which the characters were portrayed and the flow of the plot was a stroke of genius for these men. I was totally enamored with Joan Collins portrayal of Potiphar's wife. As usual she was sexy and beautiful. Then there was the Pharoh. His magnetism and presence was amazing. I think his scene was the best played out in the show. I could not take my eyes off of him. Even Donnie Osmond's presence seemed diminished in his presence. Overall I would say that this show was rated among the top 3 musicals that I could watch over and over. I would place this in the same category as The Sound of Music, and Seven Brides For Seven Brothers. All are my favorite musicals.
