Did You Know?

The role of Apache Dancer in this film was created especially for Amanda Courtney-Davies.See more »
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 »
[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.

Amazing, 19 June 2005
Author: star02904 from providence

Let's make it clear that Joseph is the special one: a musical that's colorful. Maria Friedman has a beautiful voice and owns the role of Narrator. She also shares a wonderful duet with Donny Osmond as Joseph. The wide variety of musical styles for each number is enchanting: ragtime, country-western, calypso, rock'n'roll ala Elvis, French chanson, etc. My favorite musical segment was the 'Poor, Poor Joseph' parts added into several of the songs with great harmony from the ensemble. The eleven brothers are fabulously diabolical and leaves the viewer wanting to see more of them. The only objectionable, albeit quick scene could be with Mrs. Potiphar (Joan Collins) where the costume and acting is quite risqué. But it's all right there in the Bible "Chapter 39 of Genesis"... Except for the part where they don't mention God, the show, in general, does stay true to the Biblical narrative. A dazzling movie of many colors!
