Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is the second British musical theatre show written by the team of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice. Its predecessor, The Likes of Us, was not performed until 2005. Based on the "coat of many colors" story of Joseph from the Hebrew Bible (Book of Genesis), this light-hearted show was first presented as a fifteen-minute pop cantata at Colet Court School in London on 1 March 1968. It was adapted as a straight-to-video musical film (starring Donny Osmond) in 1999. Joseph was particularly recognized as one of the few major British musical theatre shows with hardly any spoken dialogue, being sung-through almost completely.
