Dove Review

“Sight & Sound Theaters: Joseph” is a splendid musical that is performed in front of more than 2,000 people. This powerful musical recreates the compelling story of Joseph, his coat of many colors, the betrayal of his brothers, the false accusations of Potiphar’s wife, his interpretation of dreams, and finally, his ascension as Prime Minister of all Egypt and the salvation of his father and his brothers during a great and awful famine. The man who portrays Joseph is a talented actor and singer, and he is handsome, just as the Bible describes Joseph. The musical stays true to the story of Joseph but imagines how a few of the conversations might have sounded.

The ending alone is worth watching. The reunion between father and son, Joseph and Jacob, is warm and touching. The audience responds with loud cheers and clapping. The entire cast hits the right notes, and “Joseph” is a very enjoyable viewing experience. It features poignant songs about the sons of Jacob, God’s promise to Jacob in the stars, and Joseph’s dreams. The themes includes the idea that what some mean for evil, God uses for good, and that God can restore what has been lost. We are glad to award this excellent musical our “Faith-Friendly” Seal for all ages. “Joseph” is a heartfelt production that brings the story of Joseph to life.
