It's only fitting that a production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is nothing short of an extravaganza, and in that respect, this production of the Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice collaboration does not disappoint.Based on the last 13 chapters of Genesis, Josephtells the tale of Joseph's rise to power in Egypt after being sold into slavery by his brothers, complete with catchy songs, energetic dance numbers, sparkling costumes, neon lights, and the ever-flashy "Joseph Megamix."It's hard to push the boundaries on this show, and while there are a few moments when the production goes a bit too far, it nonetheless provides a fun and entertaining evening for audiences of all ages.
