The musical re-imagines the biblical story of Joseph, his father Jacob, his 11 brothers, and his coat of many colors as a pop vaudeville show. Joseph had its U.S. premiere in May 1970 at the College of the Immaculate Conception in Douglastown, New York. The musical premiered on Broadway in 1972, featuring the late Laurie Beechman as the Narrator.
