Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice
absolutely biased
Thursday, May 20, 2004
4.0
My wife and I attended the show last Friday night. Our nephew was in the children’s choir, but I will still voice our opinions since everyone else seems to have one. Sure, I will be biased, but at last check this was a free country and everyone still gets to vote. The costumes were perfect for the show and the various styles made for an interesting visual amid the sparse, colorful set. Sara Holt and Jacob Wood were excellent in their roles. Sara brought energy and enthusiasm as the narrator, much more than other narrators we’ve seen. The brothers were good but they seemed to be missing about 5. Oh well, the 6 you did have were fine.The brother songs & dance numbers worked well. The comedy bits were funny at times but it seemed they were stalling to get ready for the next number. The band was great and since we were seated opposite them, only moderately loud. How musicians or actors could account for failing mikes is beyond me. It was distracting to see actors guessing about their mikes, and they probably could have done without them. This is really my only complaint. It’s really good community theatre, and it looks like an awful lot of work went into this. It is hard to believe that these performers are unpaid and doing it for the fun of it. On this night, everyone who came to watch the play should have had fun and anyone who didn’t wasn’t trying. We certainly enjoyed it- and not just our nephew’s parts:)
