Photo Coverage: 3D Theatricals' Inaugural Production Of JOSEPH AND THE AMAZING TECHNICOLOR DREAMCOAT At Cerritos Center For The Performing Arts
3-D Theatricals (3DT) presented Andrew Lloyd Webber (Music) and Tim Rice's (Lyrics) irresistible story of "Joseph...", his brothers, and one very colorful garment in this delightful musical saga that opened at 3DT's newest home, the Cerritos Center for the Performing Arts in Cerritos, CA. October 14 and runs through October 23, 2016 as their 2016 - 2017 premier season offering. BroadwayWorld brings you a first look at opening night below!
This high-spirited musical rocks the stage with the classic Biblical saga of love and redemption in ancient times, as favored son Joseph with his coat of many colors becomes exiled by his jealous brothers, only to find his true calling in the strange new land of Egypt while coming to grips with the power of lies and injustice. Set to an engaging palette of musical styles, from country-western and calypso to bubble-gum pop and rock 'n' roll, this Old Testament tale emerges both timely and timeless and includes the popular songs "Go, Go, Go Joseph" and "Any Dream Will Do," as sung by a cast of 22, plus a 35 member children's choir.
Joseph is also filled with surprising humor for adults and dazzling delights for children, and with 3-D Theatricals' hallmark of putting their own magical spin on each and every production they present, "It'll be like seeing 'Joseph...' for the very first time!" says Executive Producer/Artistic Director T.J. Dawson.
To help create that special spin, Broadway veteran performers and creative forces, multi Tony Award nominee Marc Kudisch, and his wife Shannon Lewis have been respectively set as Director and Choreographer. Count 22 Broadway shows between them and the dynamic duo have more than earned their place in the hierarchy of New York's Broadway community. Mr. Kudisch's direction of "Joseph..." will be not only be his first-ever such endeavor with a pre- existing theatre show (not to mention his first time working creatively with his wife); but ironically, as a performer, circles back to his originating the role of brother "Reuben" in the 1993/94 revival of "Joseph..." which, in turn, marked his Broadway debut.
Distinguished Southland maestro Corey Hirsch has been set as Musical Director. Sarah Grandpre of Orange County will serve as Vocal Director for the Voices of Hope Children's Choir.
