BM01 Broadway Musicals DVD - Donny Osmond (Actor), Richard Attenborough (Actor), David Mallet (Director), Steven Pimlott (Director) - Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat - Broadway Musicals DVD - Following the successful 1998 video release of Cats comes another Andrew Lloyd Webber blockbuster musical, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, and it's a savvy choice. It hasn't been represented on film before, it's short enough (78 minutes) to present without cuts, and it has the star power of former teen icon Donny Osmond, who played over 1,800 performances across North America. Rather than record a live performance, Cats director David Mallet conceived Joseph as a film, though one that is based strongly on codirector Steven Pimlott's 1991 London revival and relies more on camerawork than venturing beyond its stagelike sets. Lloyd Webber's first project with lyricist Tim Rice was originally written in 1968 as a school cantata; accordingly, this film uses a framing sequence of a school recital, with an audience of clapping, singing kids and members of the faculty playing the roles. The Old Testament tale of Joseph and his coat of many colors gets a splashy, vigorous treatment with an energetic cast, Las Vegas-style glitz, and catchy, eclectic songs, including Any Dream Will Do, Close Every Door, the peppy Go, Go, Go Joseph, and various bits of country, calypso, and Elvis. Osmond is perfect in the title role, with a strong voice and winning persona, while London stage veteran Maria Friedman performs well in the central role of the narrator. Richard Attenborough appears (and sings a little) as Jacob, and Joan Collins makes a brief, nonsinging cameo. Joseph certainly isn't revolutionary musical theater, but if you view it as a kids' show, it's a silly good time (though there are poignant moments too). Parents should note, however, that this production might warrant a little discretion due to one suggestive scene and some risque costumes. Donny Osmond, Richard Attenborough, Joan Collins. Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber's beloved musical, filmed for DVD for the first time. Inspired by the smash-hit London Palladium production, this is a song-filled, highly entertaining trip through ancient Egypt. 1999-color-78 min-NR-widescreen. Donny Osmond shines as Joseph: he can really sing. Richard Attenborough was very good as Jacob, who sang a few lines and was actually pretty good at it. Mrs. Potiphar (Joan Collins) was hilarious, as was Robert Torti as Pharaoh The King. (He was my dad's favorite character; he's watched the Pharaoh's song about a million times.) The eleven brothers are really funny, too. The only character I have a minor problem with is the Narrator, played by Maria Friedman. She has great facial expressions, but her singing voice is less-than-stupendous. (Listen to some of the cast recordings, particularly the 1993 LA cast; you'll hear the difference. Ever since I saw this show on stage in LA about ten years ago, I've been dying to have a copy I could watch over and over and over... Well, that day has come. I saw the video version on a recent trip to London-- and am sold on it's value. The cast is amazing, lead by Donny Osmond's unflappable vocal ability. Unlike the cats video, no songs have been cut out, and no songs have been shortened, with the possible exception of the Joseph Megamix, which has been revamped to serve as an end credit theme. The sets have been built as immersive environments, not a filmed version of the stage show.
