Lee Mead was chosen to star in the title role through the hit UK reality talent search "Any Dream Will Do." Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat also stars Preeya Kalidas as the Narrator, Dean Collinson as Pharaoh and Stephen Tate as Jacob/Potiphar/Guru.

The staging of the West End revival will be based upon that of Steven Pimlott's 1991 production.
