Joseph Setting Attendance Records

The first six performances of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat have set a new attendance record for the Empress. All six performances went "solid" (meaning that there were no remaining seats in the theatre. ) Joline tells me that the box-office phone won't stop ringing.

The Magna Times gave the production a "glowing review," with critic Dan Workman saying that he and his wife couldn't stop talking about the show for their entire 40 minute ride home. The review has been taken off the paper's website, but it was full of spoilers anyway. Probably just as well.

If you haven't come to see Joseph yet, don't wait. This isn't the typical Joseph you've seen before. Director Nolan Mitchell and Musical Director Trent Oliphant have taken some, um, well, liberties with the script and music that make this production different in many ways. Audiences have loved it.
