Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat

June 4, 2010

I am on the road for my birthday this weekend. We are in the Pigeon Forge, TN/Gatlinburg, TN area. (More on why later!) Tonight we saw a production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat at the Miracle Theater. I expected it to be a bunch of cheese, but I was more than pleasantly surprised.

The production was high-end. Great lighting and set design. The show was funny and well performed. The guy that played Joseph and the lady that played the narrator were great! I wanted to put a post up so anyone trying to find info may rest assured they are getting a great show that is worth the measly 38.00!!

The theater was far less than half-full, which is unfortunate. The cast performed as if there was a full house and showed us all a good time. The Miracle Theater is known for being uber religious. I am not uber religious or slightly religious as a matter of fact.

I did not feel any high pressured pitch to praise Jesus or anything. There was some music before the show and an invitation to Sunday mass. Outside of that, all was normal. The show was not changed to be more preachy. It stayed true to Andrew Lloyd Weber and his fun fast paced story of Joseph.

If you are in the area of Pigeon Forge- take the time out for this show!
