Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat

Theatre Under the Stars brought Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat  to the Malkin Bowl tonight in a production that was at times confusing, but had moments of brilliance. Erik Ioannidis, as Joseph, carried the show with a powerful voice and dancing.  But the show's best moment came in the second act when Joseph's brothers sing and dance a lament for the good old days in Canaan.  Second to this wonderful act, I loved the finale when children ran up the aisles carrying multi-coloured banners in an exuberant dance that seemed perfect for theatre in Stanley Park.  The show, by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice, will play every other night until August 21, alternating with Singin' in the Rain. My eight-year-old son also enjoyed the show and agreed that Iaonnidis was superb.
