Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat

Judy and I are really into Joseph right now because we have become addicted to a show on BBC America, called "Any Dream Will Do". It is about the search for a new leading man for the production on the West End in London. (The Brit's version of Broadway.) I went wild when I realized that John Barrowman who plays Capt. Jack Harkness on Torchwood (also on BBC America) is one of the judges in the show. It turns out the show is at least a year old and we already know who wins but that suits us down to the ground because we are the kind of people who read the end of the book first to make sure we like how it ends.

Anyway--long ago we saw a version of Joseph at the Assembly Hall in Champaign. We subsequently bought a video version starring Donny Osmond. We'd like to watch it again but--as you know. VCRs are going the way of the eight track tape and ours bit the dust a while back. We can't decide if we should replace it or not. Once Judy's shoulder gets better we'll head for Best Buy and see if we can find a dvd of the show starring Donny. In the meantime, here's a Youtube video of Donny in the teeny tiny loincloth he wears while in jail as Joseph. He sings pretty nicely too.
