Joe McElderry to star in Joseph UK tour
It has been announced that former X Factor winner winner Joe McElderry is set to star as the title character in the UK tour of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.

Mentored by Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, McElderry won the X Factor aged 18 in 2009. His version of Miley Cyrus’s 'The Climb' topped the singles charts whilst his debut album Wide Awake reached number 3 on the UK Albums Chart. He has since gone on to have two more top ten albums, and he became the first X Factor winner to release four albums, with a fifth in the making.

McElderry is also the first and only celebrity to have won three reality TV shows. He was crowned the winner of the second series of ITV’s Popstar to Operastar before strapping on his skis and slaloming his way to become champion of Channel 4’s celebrity ski competition The Jump last year.

Joseph marks McElderry’s first major role in a long running musical. He took on the title character in The Who's Tommy for a one-off West End gala in 2012. He is currently reprising the role in Blackpool, Last year McElderry recorded a duet with Kerry Ellis, the first lady of the West End, for her self titled album.

   :shock1:   LONG running ??? 

I love the musical though, its very feel good, lovely music, yes can definately see Joe that pulling off... don't know where he manage the time though to fit this one in...
Title: Re: Joseph & the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat - UK Tour 2016 Dates TBA
Post by: judetheobscure on September 01, 2015, 11:37:00 AM
I think it means the musical is long-running, not that Joe's participation in it will necessarily be long-running. I'm not sure how long the usual stint is in a touring production.

This makes sense of the things that have been said in recent interviews about Joe being in musical theatre (Lorraine) and being busy next year (Weekend)   ;)

I have never seen 'Joseph'  but it looks like I will in 2016.

Brilliant news hope it comes to Theatre Royal Newcastle even settle for Empire Theatre Sunderland.
Wonder if Joe auditioned for "Tommy" & "Joseph" or was he approached to do the shows, any one know.

A punishing schedule at Glasgow - 2 shows a day and 3 on the Saturday!!

Is this 'normal'?

How long can a cast keep that up for!

Does anyone know how big Joe's part is?

Have  seen Joseph @ the Sunderland Empire , it 's a few years ago , from what I can remember , do think Joe's role is a major one -   :wink:


Am fairly sure , got a DVD of this , with Donny Osmond playing the role of Joseph   :)

Well, he is Joseph and the musical is titled JOSEPH and that coat  ;)

But i have seen more challenging parts, for starters the musical is not the longest, and has a lot of cast numbers... but he is on stage a lot, and gets to sing the most famous songs...with Close Every Door as the highlight.. for me  :D

It is a major role and perfect for Joe. The songs will really suit his voice. There's two particularly poignant songs - Close Every Door to Me, and Any Dream Will Do plus many other songs. The acting is not too complex and it doesn't matter that he is on the short side.
Joseph and the Narrator are the two main roles and carry the show, with cameo numbers from Pharoah and the brothers.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joseph_and_the_Amazing_Technicolor_Dreamcoat#Musical_numbers

Preview of all the numbers: http://www.kenwright.com/index.php?id=642

Louise - with the touring production there are days between venues/destinations while the production team assemble the stage etc. so the cast do get slightly more time off (non-show days) than an average West End or similar production.

What I like about this musical is how many styles of music there are in it.   There is an Apache dance, a calypso (Benjamin Calypso) and many others, not to mention Pharoah as Elvis!

Thanks for info and links Jude. Bit of homework for me listening to the songs.

It seems to me that performers must really love what they do as it must be tough dealing with the demands of the scheduling.

I'm not sure really where to put this bit I'm sure someone will put me right.  I'm afraid I jumped the gun and bought a ticket for Joseph in St Helens on 27 Feb but have a family commitment that week end so can't go. It's a good seat C10 near other Joe fans. Will sell a bit cheaper if that helps. Thank you

I would think if anywhere down here it would probably be the Mayflower in Southampton although we can hope for King's Theatre in Southsea which is where most musical productions are held in Portsmouth area

Oxford on the schedule Gill :)

Yippee!  I saw that on Twitter.   I think a weekend in Banbury is on the cards.  As well as my sister, my friend wants to come but only a matinee.

Due to the length of the tour and the amount of shows I wonder if Joe will do every performance or will he have a understudy?

I would imagine he would be scheduled to do all the shows. The part is not that taxing vocally. Maybe look at previous productions though, with Lloyd Daniels and H.

It isn't as though they do eight shows a week, unlike a West End show.   They do have a break when they move to another venue.

I wonder who will play Mrs Potiphar!

Post by: louisew on September 04, 2015, 10:34:06 PM
From the schedules we have seen they are doing 10 shows in 5 days   :wacko:

I am not sure if 'time off' for travelling can be called relaxing. It seems a really tough schedule to me especially given that it looks like it will continue for 6 months.   :swoon:

It's less than a West End schedule. Geronimo has been playing Phantom six nights a week for I think a year now.

Although it does seem a lot, but any daytime worker has a tight schedule as well. And we do have to realize that it is work. I am sure he will get used to the schedule... he has to  :D

There's about eleven weeks of gaps in the schedule as so far announced. I would suggest it is quite likely that most, if not all, those gaps will be filled in.

My sister and I have decided that, because we have cancelled the Blackpool trip, we are going to have a few days in Oxford when "Joseph" is on.   I have been looking at guesthouses and there are some lovely ones in Oxford.  One in particular looks great and is only £58 a night each.   Although we lived only 23 miles from Oxford we have never had a holiday there.   We will do all the usual touristy things, such as have a trip on the city tour bus etc etc.

I emailed Celeb Agents about the lack of info regarding the Evolution tour in my neck of the woods and heard back today.  She said not all the dates had been settled but he was doing Southampton as Joseph!   So that is official proof now.  I told her that I had had to cancel Tommy as my sister is unwell and she emailed me again wishing her well.  I thought that was nice.

He can't do them all, that is impossible.
I am sure nearer the time there is going to be some schedule that some of the shows he won't perform.

In general although it is quite common, it is also a long lasting problem when people buy tickets because of the people who are advertised to perform. It is always a disappointment that the stars of the show won't perform right on the date you have tickets.

In the business its more or less common to have a schedule printed on the website who/when is performing.

I have seen Mamma Mia! over ten times in Holland (and few times in Belgium and UK) but I NEVER had Simone Kleinsma as the lead part Donna.

I am staying the weekend in Blackpool, but only bought one ticket, my fear is that he may not perform the shows and although I like Joseph...seeing it more then once would only be worth it if he is performing.

I spoke to Joe about the heavy schedule and he didn't seem worried at all. The songs are easy and he only has a few each show doesn't he? I thought Lloyd did all the shows during his stint unless he was ill. Does anyone know if that's correct ?

This is what I was meaning when I mentioned burn out.  I wonder how it works when Joe signs up for something - would he have known that Joseph started as early as January and with rehearsals would mean short or no break after panto.  Looking at last years dates it started later and finished earlier in the year.

I think he has the stamina for a heavy schedule if he can resist being too sociable   ;)   but no break between projects I think is a mistake.

 well  as panto  ends   3  jan    joe would  have a week  to probabaly   do  a skiing   holiday    maybe ????? it  depends when  joe   has   joseph  rehersals    really   doesnt  it ????? joe  has an  hectic   schedule    (  even   more with  joseph than  with   evolution   and  tour  2015 ) but   joe is    fit   and  joe   signed  up  for   joseph  so  he  must   know   when  he  will  have  to be there  for rehersals    soo  soon  after    panto ???? joes  a  young   fit  gym  guy sure joe  can   do it  !!!!  so    sure he  knows  what hes   schedule   will  be like   doesnt  he  and  joe  made  all the  choices  that   this  was what   joe wanted   for    2016   ??? joe  could  have    gone in  studio   making  album   5  -- but   joe decided on  joseph  and this    busy  schedule xxxx


 as i   didnt  see lloyd  or    follow his  joseph    show  i  have  no idea   what   days  lloyd   was   sick  or  off   from  joseph  ?????? maybe  joe  will  have days  off   hopefully   they will inform     us  when  and  what days   joe is   off  from  joseph   role    tho  ( unless  joe is  sick  and   it is  an  emergency  that   he is  replaced with  an understudy) and then  we wont book these   dates   its   understudy ??? xxx

I just don't want to get people worried, but I woud hate them to be disappointed even more.
But really, with a schedule like that it is very likely that he would have a week off during the 6 months, that is very common, even on westend.

There are still some gaps in the schedule - maybe these will be time off - I hope so because I doubt Joe will want to disappoint people by taking a week off.  If it is planned that he will take time off I hope it will be made clear very early on.

If the current gaps are planned weeks off (for everyone) that would explain what looks like a longer schedule than last year.

I'm talking more about the lack of decent holiday gap between Tommy, Evolution, Hull, Joseph.

Lloyd seemed to have quite a few performances off when Matt Brinkler (?) stood in. Presumably Lloyd was ill a bit ?

Lloyd has a much weaker voice than both Joe and seasoned musical performers.

He has to travel one of those 2 days !

Best option would be to travel immediately following the last performance.

Potentislly 240 identical shows in close succession ... I agree he won't suffer vocally but he gets bored easily .

He might squeeze in a holiday after Panto but after that he's going to deserve one in July.

yes   joe  will  need and   deserve   a holiday    by   july   (  same  as this  year    2015  -- joes  holiday  was   july   aswell  ) and    next year     we have  no other  dates in  diary other than    consett  and  blyth   in  nov   ?????? wonderr what other  joe  projects    are in  line    for    aug/  sept / oct

I hope that's Joe's experiences in panto have given him the confidence that he is cut out for a longer run.
Though the music might, to the lay observer, seem the same night after night, I am sure it doesn't seem as simple as that to the performers. Especially when moving so quickly from one venue to another. And also the camaraderie among all these show casts seems to be fantastic so I'm sure Joe will have a great time with his fellow performers and crew and to a certain extent it even might seem a bit like one long party - I hope :)

Plus that not one night is the same....I have seen same shows more then once, and there are differences in acting, in singing, in interaction with other actors and audience.

I am positive that he knows what he will be facing. I am not 100% sure still that he will do all of them, that is a very common thing with long lasting shows.

Totally agree with you Trudy, it should be made public that if an understudy is to replace Joe at certain shows, (not due to illness) it should be announced well in advance. No disrespect to the artist who would play "Joseph" should the need arise, but as a Joe fan I would have purchased my ticket to see him perform the leading role.

Of course there will be those who will be buying tickets to just go see the show no matter  who is in the cast.

I am not sure where that comes from, because I think every Joe fan would want to see Joe as Joseph.
I was only trying to warn people that on long-run shows like this it is common to have a alternate for some days, or for some shows on a certain day.
It is not common to have a list when someone is performing or not.
Here in Holland it is getting more and more common, and I think that is only fair to the paying customers. No disrespect intended to the alternates, who are always in a thankless role to give their best to an audience who think they payed for the star of the show.

It happened to me many times, and I think that is a problem...I bought a very expensive ticket for the Phantom to see the dutch Celinde and was very very disappointed when I discovered that she was not playing that night...my first thought was not to see the show and buy a ticket for some other.
Meanwhile I discovered that Celinde has on her OWN website a list of the days she is not scheduled. Have to say that the part of Christine is too demanding vocally to play 8/9 shows a week, she needs her stem rest.

Joseph is less demanding yes, but again I see it happening that some shows he won't perform and his alternate will...if only for that alternate to be able to get some experience in case of Joe getting ill, or losing his voice.

I don't want to be negative but I can't help thinking that a Saturday Joseph near(ish) to London would be better for Joe's career than the Darlington gig.   :roll2:

If it was a long standing commitment then it should have been identified as a 'Joe not Joseph' show from when the dates were first advertised.

Someone coming from Germany has booked this show   :roll3:

Don't worry if you're not. i'm not even sure if I should do it yet or not as i've got a hospital appointment for my eyes on the wednesday evening. :)

 Joe saw people briefly after The Wright Stuff today.

He was dashing off to do some promo interviews.  He is also going to be recording something for Blue Peter and will let us know when it will be aired.

There are only 8 days of rehearsal for the cast. Although Joe  has learned his part, he has concerns about this being sufficient.  He said that the cast do not need to rehearse with each new group of children - they are onstage as a choir only.

I thought he looked good, despite him saying he was tired - his hair was fab!! nice 'natural' waves   :swoon:

Suggest you ring the theatre and ask as it's the degree of raking and stage height that can differ so much between theatres and affect views of the whole show, especially for small kids.

Hello all. It's me aviva. .some of you guys remember me I think  :wave:

Can someone assist me which shows is the nearest one to the airports either Heathrow or Manchester Airport.  I would really need your assistance and the nearest hotels for this venues. Thank you all if you could help me out!
Title: Re: Joseph & the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat - UK Tour - Jan-Jul 2016
Post by: excitedbyjoe on January 11, 2016, 04:32:13 AM
hi - most of the Josephs are in the North West so I'd suggest Manchester (and you could do Leeds fairly easy too around the same time). Manchester airport is actually near Stockport to the south of the city.

I'm assuming you will be relying on public transport? Public transport from Heathrow isn't great - you would have to negotiate tubes in central London in order to get out to Bromley and Crawley both of which aren't on the tube network but on the train network.

However if you are hiring a car and feel confident on busy 4 lane wide motorways then I'd suggest Crawley is easy from Heathrow using the M25 then the M23 towards Gatwick. (Gatwick for Crawley would be the ideal airport for you to use but I'm assuming that isn't served from Canada?)

Pre- booked taxis ( emphasis on the pre-booking) might be cost effective. In which case I'd suggest Manchester so someone else is having the drive. I wouldn't recommend driving yourself into Manchester - it's an extremely large and traffic congested place.

Others may think differently but that's my advice Viv.

There are direct flights to Gatwick from the following Canadian destinations:

Edmonton,  Montreal, Ottawa, St. John's St John's, Toronto, Vancouver.

The most numerous by some way are from Toronto.

Gatwick is 7 miles from Crawley.

EDIT: And I've just noticed you are from Toronto so that would work very well.

Agree - I assumed from Viv giving the options of Manchester or Heathrow that they were the only options. The problem with Crawley is that Joe isn't appearing for the 3 Saturday shows as he's up at Rockliffe.

The only thing I know about Lucy is that she sang 'opera' on BGT.  Those of you that know about this sort of thing - is her 'opera' any good and how will it translate to Joseph?

Joe is usually in a situation where his voice is the most accomplished - will Lucy change this?

Her singing arias isn't my cup of tea but she has a nice voice on this though it lacks the smooth flow of Joe's voice

http://youtu.be/88BHkIFO4rE


I'm glad she not a typical MT belter - that wouldn't have complimented Joe in the way that I don't think his duets with Kerry Ellis worked particularly well.

She looks quite short which is good IMO.

http://musicaltheatrereview.com/joseph-tour-britains-got-talents-lucy-kay-joins-joe-mcelderry-in-the-cast/

This is the text of the above link:
Britain’s Got Talent’s Lucy Kay will play the Narrator in the upcoming 2016 touring production of Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, also starring X Factor winner Joe McElderry (the tour begins from 25–30 January at The Broadway Theatre, Peterborough).

Lucy Kay scored her first number one album in 2014, after her debut album Fantasia shot straight to the top of the Classical Album Chart. The singer, originally from Leicestershire, shot to fame and captured the country’s hearts as runner-up on Britain’s Got Talent in 2014.

Following her success on the show, Kay also recorded the song ‘Flower of Scotland’ with the band of Her Majesty’s Royal Marines to celebrate the 350th anniversary of the Royal Navy. She was also a special guest on Andrea Bocelli’s 2014 tour.

Previously announced as Joseph, Joe McElderry was just 18 when he won the sixth series of The X Factor, having been mentored by Girls Aloud star Cheryl Fernandez-Versini and beating off fierce competition from Olly Murs and Stacey Solomon.  McElderry then reached No. 1 on the UK Singles Charts with his rendition of Miley Cyrus’s ‘The Climb’ and his debut album Wide Awake went straight in at No. 3 on the UK Albums Chart. He has since gone on to have two more Top 10 albums, and he became the first X Factor star to release four albums, with a fifth in the making.

McElderry, who hails from South Shields, Tyne and Wear, is also the first and only celebrity to win three reality TV shows! He was crowned the winner of the second series of ITV’s Popstar to Operastar before strapping on his skis and slaloming his way to become champion of Channel 4’s celebrity ski competition The Jump.

His first major theatrical appearance was a one-off West End gala performance as the lead in The Who’s Tommy in 2012 and he returned to the role at the Opera House in Blackpool last year.

Since its inception almost 35 years ago, Bill Kenwright’s production of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s family musical has now sold an estimated 20 million tickets.

I find her a bit warbly and ott. She was support act for Collabro on their first tour and I saw her then.
But the narrator role can be played very ott so it might work quite well.

PS. Kerry Ellis and Joe is about as perfect a match as you will get in musical theatre  :tongue2:

What do you think?

I honestly think she has a beautiful voice. She is a great singer as well, she knows how to pitch the notes and she can hold on to a note.
I agree with Marion that I find her a bit lacking on the smoothness, but that is not per se an negative thing for Musical Theater.
I love her diction...but I know the part of narrator is quite challenging vocally and she should work a bit on her "changing to other notes" so it seems a bit more effortless. I miss the right flow in her going to the notes.


I agree with Jude that Kerry Ellis and Joe is the perfect match in MT  :-)

I am going with my friend from Banbury and, hopefully, my sister if she is well enough.   My friend knows the songs off by heart as she typed out the lyrics for the school where she worked when they put the show on!

Hmmm... Only show I could get to is Wolverhampton but that's miles away and really rough.
I don't really feel comfortable travelling to Wolverhampton.

I have friends in Wolverhampton and they live in a very nice area so think that's a bit of a unfair to say its rough, most towns have undesirable areas.

The theatre is very close to the train station.

I am afraid that both my friend and my sister are not well enough to go to see Joseph in Oxford on 10 March (matinee).  We have very good seats in Row J which give a good view of the stage and have a space in front so no-one is too close.

If anyone is interested, please send me a PM.  We will sell them at face value.

This morning on the Radio 2 breakfast show Chris Evans spoke to a girl from Peterborough who is singing in the choir in Joseph tonight. Chris mentioned that Joe was in it and he also said he'd always liked Joe. The girl will be on with Chris again tomorrow just before 7.30am to talk about her experience!

I tend to look for the non-known-Joe-fans for the best idea of how it went. And sometimes the media reviews. The Peterborough critic for example wrote a glowing review. Looking back over his previous reviews he does seem very generous in his praise of all the productions and you have to read between the lines to get an idea of which were less successful. Joseph wasn't one of them ;)

Not his hair styling. I'm just highlighting that there was a camera ban and some fans would want to be surprised at the show itself at how Joe looks in this role.

There are some Instagram pics already posted apparently which could spoil the surprise for some fans yet to attend.

I do too  :D  and I will of course after I have seen the show myself.


I do have a feeling that although most of what I read is from huge Joe fans, that the production is really good and I focus on some words they use. I read a few times from different people that his Joseph is vulnerable at times...and that for me is a word, you would only use if it is really poignant that his acting is great.
So I can't wait!  :D

It was nice to see Joe putting my pic from the opening night on his Instagram page.  I guess in response to an earlier comment that means he had no objection and as the show has been running for over 40  years with very little in the way of costume change in recent years I didn't think it would be an issue but I apologise if it spoilt the surprise for anyone  :depressed:

@Trudy, and not everyone has the luxury of getting to watch the show at all. So thank you to the people who have been so kind to show their experiences and little snippets of the show. If you'd like to remain spoiler free until the show I think it would be best not to visit the threads pertaining to Joseph until you've seen the show, which is simple enough.

Thanks Tacom - it was never my intention to spoil the show for anyone - In fact I was lucky enough to film the opening night in its entirety but will only share the footage with Joe and family until the end of the run and even then will only upload a few numbers to YT.   My video camera has the facility to take stills at the same time as filming so I have over 200 but just uploaded a few in response to requests but will certainly think twice before doing so again.   We live and learn as they say  :tissue:   I hope you will be able to get over to see the show - it's everything that has been said and more - just amazing  :ten:

I have added "SPOILERS" to the thread title.  Apologies that it wasn't done sooner, but if I am honest it never occurred to me that pictures, etc would be thought of as spoilers.  The story is very well known, as are the costumes etc and there is an abundance of information/pictures posted on Twitter (including from Joe and the rest of the cast) and the internet in general.

Please don't stop posting pictures Paula (or anyone else) as now the thread is marked people have the choice whether to read it or not (although I would have thought there would always have been the possibility that  ALL info would be posted in here).

If anyone would prefer a dedicated spoiler thread maybe in private please let me or one of the other mods know.  :)

 :thankyou: Paula for all your postings.  Not seeing Joseph until February but it has certainly not spoiled it for me and I have never seen it before but the story is well known.  Could not resist seeing videos from all his shows before seeing it.  It is different when you see it for real as the atmosphere is something that cannot be captured.  Always appreciate your postings so a big thank you.

Absolutely agree carisma.
We've always been quite open about posting reviews, photos and videos of all of Joe's shows, unless specifically requested not to by management, theatres etc. so I'm not sure what's different this time.
For me, seeing some photos only serves to build up the excitement. And nothing, not even a full glorious technicolour, widescreen, surround sound, Dolby cinema screening of the show could every replace seeing and, more importantly, hearing the show live. (With apologies of course, to those who are not able to see Joseph live  :glum: ).

Thank you Carisma  :you rock:

@Paula, please never stop what you are doing, if there is a moment when you may think posting one of your fabulous pictures or videos might be seen as a spoiler, don;t hesitate to ask one of us, we will discus it and we could make a private thread in the bunker if needed.

I do also think that everything posted on here is not at all spoiling it for me...on the contrary, for me it builds up to the excitement, and I can't wait to see the show in Blackpool.

It doesn't personally bother me ( I love spoilers and always read the last page of a book) but it has bothered some people who think differently. One main difference here is that Joe looks so totally different than in any other role. Unlike Tommy or panto, there will be nigh on 240 shows of this - hardly any of the MM were at opening night (maybe 50 or so) and I know a lot of fans not there that night would have liked the opportunity not to see spoilers. A link to photos that people have to click at least gives them that opportunity. Instagram doesn't give fans that choice.

No one has asked anyone to stop posting pics. Of course those who can't go or who like spoilers will want to do see pics.   Every fan is extremely grateful for all the brilliant work and commitment Paula does. Team Joe clearly concur.

I was suggesting that it's the format in which they're done which possibly needs a rethink - the problem with Instagram is that the pics are unavoidable for all that person's followers.

Firstly  :thankyou: to all of you who have supported me over this issue I can only once again apologise for any upset caused.  :sorry:  I took a conscious decision not to post photos on this forum but had no idea firstly that Joe would repost it and secondly that someone would put Joe's Instagram pic on here.   If Instagram is indeed the problem then maybe those who choose to express concern in private but remain anonymous in public would care to unfollow me on Instagram then the problem would be solved.    Having said that they would have to unfollow Joe too - I have less than 75 followers and he has over 25,000 and he seems pretty fond of using this form of social media :lol:

Post by: excitedbyjoe on January 31, 2016, 10:52:59 PM
SPOILERS…. from a Joseph virgin so sorry if I've got things in the wrong order or misunderstood what was going on :shock1:

We arrived at theatre early and it was soon busy and buzzing, There is a bit of merch- children’s Tshirts at £10 but it seems that coincidentally the age relates to UK sizes, so adults size 14 and under can fit into them. There are individual programmes per venue at £3.50. Also key rings and pin badges and wind-catchers. There’s a large libretto pamphlet but no Joe pics in that. Cost £10 I think.

The theatre was modern. In the bar/foyer we found Eileen, David and Julia. All very excited. Antony Costa was also with them.

The show started about 10 minutes late due to technical difficiulties (the computer crashed and needed rebooting).

They played quite a lot of music to keep us entertained during this. Finally it opens and all the cast are stood still on stage in subdued lighting with the main man’s back to us. The narrator Lucy comes on in a dressing gown and singing to 2 small children. Then she talkes off the dressing gown and goes in front of Joe, clicks her fingers and the cast all come alive to start the story- and it was just…..WOW…. WOW…. WOW…..Joe spins around with the biggest grin, hair all wild and wavy, tanned skin making his eyes sparkly and teeth dazzling and he’s bouncing around in his uggs and running up and down stairs singing ADWD. I have never ever seen him looking like that, even off duty. So he totally convinces as a young boy.

They do the bit where the brothers bully Joseph but it’s all light hearted and funny. The he gets his coat and sings the colours. And then the brothers get jealous and he gets tied up in a rope and whipped and carted away in a boat. All this is very tongue in cheek and Joe shows great acting and comic timing, quite a few laugh out loud moments and he looks so boyish and cute.

Then we get another look of Joe that I never thought I’d see, he’s put in a cage and takes his clothes off, emerging in a silver loin cloth. Then we have the seduction scene- that’s not as shocking as I thought it would be- more of a light brushing of finger tips than the full on grope in the Donny version.

Then he’s thrown into jail and he does the most stunning version of CED. Stunning vocally as expected but it was done topless in a rather tight loin cloth, he’s doing the first gig of a major popular show  amongst hardened regulars and he acting at the same time and with chains on his wrists. He totally blew me away- mesmerising. The orchestra is great (they are under the stage at this venue) and the song builds and builds to a tremendous final series of notes. Fabulous.

His loincloth then gets dirty and tatty. The Elvis bit I could have done without. It’s funny lyrically but the guy can’t sing that well (or it was nerves) and it goes on too long. Then Joe does his deam interpretation and Go Go Go Joseph.  Joe gets to be number 2 to the Pharoh and he has a gold loin cloth and then gold trousers and his mask. Ironically in his mask he looks more like the Joe I’m used to as it hides his wild curls and you just see the chiselled right side of his jaw and a more serious face.

Then he has another scene with the brothers,  the Calypso bit with Joe shimmying and shaking his booty !!! Then he reveals who he really is and then a very poignant re-uniting with his now elderly father.

Then he does ADWD with added “Give me My Coloured Coat” ending with the big note but Lucy joins in so a bit of a duet. This song doesn’t really test Joe but it's all sung very well and the audience joins in. Joe’s in the gold cloak now and all the various coloured coat bits happen…several times.  :roll:

Then it’s a mega mix with all the songs again, about 75% of the audience are stood clapping in time at this stage. Then we get another verse of CED so sit down. And then stand up again to clap in time with ADWD to finish. And it’s an absolute triumph, Joe totally steals the show.  :ten: :ilovejoe:

The brothers and Jacob and the supporting cast are all good actors and singers (unlike in Tommy where there were some ropey voices in the cast IMO). Lucy was clearly nervous but I like her non-MT tone and she sounds and looks right with Joe- she’s petite and has wavy dark hair (albeit extensions) so it comes across as brother/sister look. The kids in the choir are all good too.

I went back on the Friday for a second dose. I can see myself doing twice as many shows as originally intended. :spasm:

He had to fight the backing track a bit which was a shame but that means it will be even more fantastic when it's live.

She's always had long dark hair, or has it always been extensions?

I choose the musicals I see almost entirely on who is singing the key roles.
If I don't know the names I look on YouTube to get a feel on whether I would like them or not. That's how I found Geronimo - and why I have been to Phantom three times - a musical which I wouldn't otherwise have bothered with.

Did you not like the music or the story - or something else? Do you ever watch period dramas for example?
(Of course, the film is not a good musical by any stretch of the imagination, it's a film with a few decent singers in minor parts)

It felt like the same music over and over. And singing out the story is what I struggle to enjoy. I didn't really get any of the narration in Joseph. Mamma Mia, Blood Brothers and Chicago I enjoy. I hated Caberet - too seedy. I liked Dirty Dancing though the singing wasn't strong. Ghost was bearable.
Title: Re: (SPOILERS) Joseph & the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat - UK Tour - Jan-Jul 2016
Post by: judetheobscure on February 01, 2016, 07:44:34 PM
The difference for Les Mis compared to most musicals is that it is all sung so there's a mixture of singing in fantastic songs along with singing to advance the story. The singing to advance the story is not the most wonderful music (equates to recitative in opera) but you really do need to be able to follow the words. If the singer's diction isn't good enough then it can get boring.

Remind me, I think Joseph is also through-sung (terrible that I can't remember seeing as it was a staple of school musical productions when I was teaching), so again, you would need to hear the words.

I love Cabaret, seedy is fine ;) Also love Chicago. Not seen Dirty Dancing (the musical) or Blood Brothers or Ghost.
Mamma Mia is a jukebox musical, ie. the story is draped around existing songs.

Joseph is all sung. Some of it was unintelligible to me but the tunes were catchy and there was lots of acting and comedy so I could work out the plot.

Yes I think it would be true to say Trudy, you definitely had a fab time at Crawley last night. Did the rest of the audience love it as much as you?

Just wondering how well is Joseph doing sales wise- just noticed a few videos and pics from last week and there seemed to be quite a few empty seats. I know when i booked for Manchester a couple of weeks ago I could have got seats anywhere in the venue even front row. I am assuming that Sunderland will be full - would be interesting to see what other venues will be the same. 

Hopefully it will do really well as the reviews have been very good - I haven't seen or heard any bad comments regarding the show or Joe's performance.

Maybe "Joseph" the musical has been on tour for so many continuous years it needs to be shelved for a year or two. Ticket sales will have no reflection on Joe's lead in the show or his performance. Newspaper reviews & twitter confirm the show is a success.

However I believe he will come away with lots of experience working in musical theatre & sharing a stage with a large cast of multi talented performers.  I wonder if the short "Northern Light" shows are a stop gap until a decision is made about a possible 5th album & what direction he wants his career to take.

My friend who counts says that about 5000 seats "sell" per venue. That is fairly reasonable I think in this day and age when there are so many touring shows and Joseph has been doing the rounds for years.  Weekday matinees sell worst. I think there is an issue with geographical spread though. There are too many gigs in the NW really and they must be competing for the same catchment.

Post by: blackenroses on February 04, 2016, 12:53:15 PM
SPOILERS…. from a Joseph virgin so sorry if I've got things in the wrong order or misunderstood what was going on :shock1:

We arrived at theatre early and it was soon busy and buzzing, There is a bit of merch- children’s Tshirts at £10 but it seems that coincidentally the age relates to UK sizes, so adults size 14 and under can fit into them. There are individual programmes per venue at £3.50. Also key rings and pin badges and wind-catchers. There’s a large libretto pamphlet but no Joe pics in that. Cost £10 I think.

The theatre was modern. In the bar/foyer we found Eileen, David and Julia. All very excited. Antony Costa was also with them.

The show started about 10 minutes late due to technical difficiulties (the computer crashed and needed rebooting).

They played quite a lot of music to keep us entertained during this. Finally it opens and all the cast are stood still on stage in subdued lighting with the main man’s back to us. The narrator Lucy comes on in a dressing gown and singing to 2 small children. Then she talkes off the dressing gown and goes in front of Joe, clicks her fingers and the cast all come alive to start the story- and it was just…..WOW…. WOW…. WOW…..Joe spins around with the biggest grin, hair all wild and wavy, tanned skin making his eyes sparkly and teeth dazzling and he’s bouncing around in his uggs and running up and down stairs singing ADWD. I have never ever seen him looking like that, even off duty. So he totally convinces as a young boy.

They do the bit where the brothers bully Joseph but it’s all light hearted and funny. The he gets his coat and sings the colours. And then the brothers get jealous and he gets tied up in a rope and whipped and carted away in a boat. All this is very tongue in cheek and Joe shows great acting and comic timing, quite a few laugh out loud moments and he looks so boyish and cute.

Then we get another look of Joe that I never thought I’d see, he’s put in a cage and takes his clothes off, emerging in a silver loin cloth. Then we have the seduction scene- that’s not as shocking as I thought it would be- more of a light brushing of finger tips than the full on grope in the Donny version.

Then he’s thrown into jail and he does the most stunning version of CED. Stunning vocally as expected but it was done topless in a rather tight loin cloth, he’s doing the first gig of a major popular show  amongst hardened regulars and he acting at the same time and with chains on his wrists. He totally blew me away- mesmerising. The orchestra is great (they are under the stage at this venue) and the song builds and builds to a tremendous final series of notes. Fabulous.

His loincloth then gets dirty and tatty. The Elvis bit I could have done without. It’s funny lyrically but the guy can’t sing that well (or it was nerves) and it goes on too long. Then Joe does his deam interpretation and Go Go Go Joseph.  Joe gets to be number 2 to the Pharoh and he has a gold loin cloth and then gold trousers and his mask. Ironically in his mask he looks more like the Joe I’m used to as it hides his wild curls and you just see the chiselled right side of his jaw and a more serious face.

Then he has another scene with the brothers,  the Calypso bit with Joe shimmying and shaking his booty !!! Then he reveals who he really is and then a very poignant re-uniting with his now elderly father.

Then he does ADWD with added “Give me My Coloured Coat” ending with the big note but Lucy joins in so a bit of a duet. This song doesn’t really test Joe but it's all sung very well and the audience joins in. Joe’s in the gold cloak now and all the various coloured coat bits happen…several times.  :roll:

Then it’s a mega mix with all the songs again, about 75% of the audience are stood clapping in time at this stage. Then we get another verse of CED so sit down. And then stand up again to clap in time with ADWD to finish. And it’s an absolute triumph, Joe totally steals the show.  :ten: :ilovejoe:

The brothers and Jacob and the supporting cast are all good actors and singers (unlike in Tommy where there were some ropey voices in the cast IMO). Lucy was clearly nervous but I like her non-MT tone and she sounds and looks right with Joe- she’s petite and has wavy dark hair (albeit extensions) so it comes across as brother/sister look. The kids in the choir are all good too.

I went back on the Friday for a second dose. I can see myself doing twice as many shows as originally intended. :spasm:


Great review excitedbyjoe :thankyou: glad you enjoyed it :cool:

Thoroughly enjoyed Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat today.  I've seen it a few times including the original West End run in - early 70's?  My friend had never seen it, and came out raving about it (she loves Joe McElderry too!)  I do love the show, it is such fun.  Joe was good, he has a really lovely, powerful voice, is sweet and has a slightly cheeky air to him!

 Please move if this needs to go in the bunker but just found a YouTube video someone posted. Its a medly of Lucy Kay at one of the shows which includes Joe singing the colours. Don't know how to bring it across and don't want to share on twitter in case it gets taken down. It was uploaded by Colin Hill think he's a fan of Lucy.

I've just got back from seeing the show at The Hawth - I'm on a total high, some of the ideas were completely 'bonkers' which I simply loved and Joe was totally amazing. Lucy did not appear but her understudy did a brilliant job (I had nothing to compare her with but I think she did well). His vocals were phenomenal, which didn't surprise me, as he never seems to fail in that department and having not seen Tommy, I was completely impressed with his acting.

I simply loved the whole thing and have come home on such a high. I took my mum who couldn't wait to get up and dance and sing. She made me smile when she said about Joe at the end 'Oh, isn't he lovely. I remember him in the X factor, it's good that even though he went of the rails for a while, now his married with two children he is back to how he was?!!!!! She was obviously rather confused - I had to put her right on that one but she thought he was totally charming and full of charisma. She simply loved Joe and the show as much as I did.

To add to the audiences feel good feeling at the end Joe invited a long time a fan of the show up from the audience....and to stop her feeling shy asked if she wanted to bring her boyfriend up as company, he teased her that she was about to sing then passed the microphone on to her boyfriend who proposed beautifully. It was so sweet. A beautiful end to a fantastic evening.

Think I might have to go again when he comes to Brighton I loved it so much. :D :bravo:

I am hoping to be able to get to Joseph tonight to see Tom Hier as Joseph.  I went earlier in the week to see Joe - so it will be interesting to compare - I'll let you know!

Btw - I echo all the rave reviews of Joe as Joseph - and his voice is 'exceptional' as 'someone' said a long  time ago!!

Happy to say that I did battle with the elements and saw Tom in Joseph.

When I saw Joe I was front row so I didn't get a good sense of the overall feeling of the show and how Joe's performance came across to those near the back of the theatre. Certainly at the front it seemed that he was doing all the right things energy,  singing and actingwise.  In close up I enjoyed all of his emotions and especially his comic moments.  At the end of the show when he thanks people and leads a bit of a singalong, again it did seem like he had the whole theatre with him and was loving it.

Seeing Tom I was a bit more than half way back - perfect seat!  I had my 'opera glasses' with me for that front row view of Tom (no not just when he was in his loin cloth!).  He did great and has a good voice. He is classically trained. I thought Joe was better at conveying his emotions and dealing with the comedy but that may have been because I was at the front.

What I did find out though is how important to me the tone of Joe's voice is and in this aspect Tom comes no where close even though he is a competent singer.  I am sooooo looking forward to hearing Joe's voice from the middle of the theatre at Bromley.  I hope my opinion doesn't change.

For me the production is really crazy. I like all the different styles of songs (which really are just padding to the storyline).  It's interesting how so much fun can be built into a serious storyline!

The audience reaction to Tom was as good as to Joe - people standing at the end and enjoying the singalong,  lots of clapping and cheering.

Saturday was a 3 show day - the whole cast did amazingly well to keep up their energy levels.  It was like they were doing it for the first time and they seemed to be having a great time.

I should mention the loin cloth scenes shouldn't I !!  Well - Tom has a very nice   :blush:  loin cloth body even under scrutiny from the opera glasses   :haha:

I was sitting to the right (my right) of the stage when I saw Joe.  There is a fairly long scene with Joe in his loin cloth in that spot on the stage.  I have to say that it felt very odd being that close (the front row was very close to the stage!) to Joe half naked   :roll3:

Apart from Bromley I am also off to Oxford - have never been so I am taking a couple of days to look round - only one Joseph booked so far though.   ;)

Btw my sister and her husband came to Crawley and thoroughly enjoyed Joseph and Joe!! My sister is already a fan and it looks like her husband might be joining the joenuts!!   :goofy:

I managed to chat with some of the cast when I was getting something to eat at the cafe before the show.  I was surprised to see them there only a short while before the show started - apparently they have to make their own arrangements for meals as there is no tour catering.  They also have to make their own arrangements for travel to all the venues and for their accommodation.  I found  all of this quite extraordinary!!  Oh yes !  and guess who I missed when he came to get his meal at the cafe - Joe!!!  Was busy chatting to sis and hubby - heart broken!!!!! :cry:

We don't have that here in in Holland, the cast is driven to the theater in a buss with several stops across the country and they all get their dinner before the show.

Aww thank you for posting that  :D

Glad you both had a great time, sorry I had to laugh at the married with 2 children part Susie, I wonder what gave your mother that idea  ;)

Tacom - on further investigation I think she had been thinking of Gareth Gates (though I don't really know about his 'personal story') however, she is still buzzing about the show and simply adored Joe's performance. She goes to many West End Shows and is very honest with her thoughts. She really did love the fun element of Joseph along with the performances. I'm still buzzing too - it was strange to think that while I was watching I almost forgot it was Joe in away as I felt he acted exceptionally well and I feel I was thinking more of the character he was portraying - if that make sense.

So sorry to have missed you Kanga, it would have been lovely to have met up. I did spot a few glow sticks in the audience so I'm pretty sure a fair number of the massive were there too. :D :D

An extract from this review:

 but once the endearing McElderry lets rip such other niceties can be overlooked. The X Factor in his case proves Britain has got talent.

Lovely to read this after a less than complementary review of the set and costumes.

Enjoying reading the reviews. Thanks to all who have posted  :thankyou:

I am reminded of a conversation we had earlier about understudies and refunds. The policy of Churchill Theatre, Bromley is very clear and I should imagine most theatres have similar policies. Whether they operate any discretion probably depends on the manager.
"3.a. Tickets cannot be exchanged or refunded after purchase unless the Event is cancelled, abandoned, rescheduled or where there is a material change to the Event. A material change is a change which, in the Venue’s reasonable opinion, would make the Event materially different to the Event that the purchasers of the Ticket could reasonably expect and would include a change to the advertised headline act (in the case of a comedy or music act) or the staging of a different production (in the case of a theatrical show). A cast change, the use of understudies, a change to a support act or an alteration to the running time does not constitute a material change. The Venue cannot offer refunds or exchanges if cast members, whether advertised or not, are unable to perform due to illness or unforeseen circumstances."

Ahhh...lovely to listen to this again - superb.  Have a wonderful time tonight Taco and to everyone else going...I know you are going to love it.

I caught up with friend today that I haven't seen in a while during our conversation she mentioned that she went to see Joseph last Wednesday....before I mentioned that I had gone on the Friday. Without any prompting she said what a wonderful singer Joe was and how her and her friend had enjoyed the whole show  and that Joes voice was outstanding (she wasn't as complementary about Lucy though - but I saw Samantha so I couldn't comment). Obviously her loving Joe has made my day. :thumbsup: :D

Samantha got a poor review from the first night in Blackpool :( (see link carisma posted above).
I wonder whether Lucy doesn't do all the shows as that's twice that Samantha has stood in for her, to our knowledge.
The narrator is the most demanding role of the show.
Title: Re: (SPOILERS) Joseph & the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat - UK Tour - Jan-Jul 2016
Post by: Tacom on February 12, 2016, 11:18:01 PM
I understood Lucy has been ill which effected her voice. She resumed the part today.
I like her, its quite a demanding role and vocally quite challinging and she did well in my opinion, clear voice lovely tone and sparkling eyes   :thumbsup:

The whole production is a lovely mixture of experienced and over the top in custumes and acting, like it should be. Cast is wonderful , the brothers and father are great and Joe is exactly there where he should be, owing the stage with a confidence like he has been doing musical theater for years and years. Vocally outstanding, his diction has improved very much and his acting, especially when it matters in the more dramatic scenes is spot on.  Almost a full house and everyone completely silent at CED, resulting in a triumphant applause, really breathtaking.

Special thumps up for the children who were endearing and having the time of their lives. Just such a great addition to the show.

Loved it.. Looking forward to see it again tomorrow  :D

Been to 2 shows, the 14hr and 20hr show, both absolutely packed with people aged 4 till 94 (and im not even kidding) . Reception was brilliant and the last one was even more brilliant. Sound was better and the cast at their 3rd show today showed no sign of tiredness and were in topform.
Joe's CED is stunning, his build up is so in control and his timing is spot on. Goosebumps from head to toes. But his reprise of ADWD is also pretty awesome.. Singing to his old father, softly lovingly, building it up to a powerful impressive end.
The boy has talent  :)

Was lovely to meet  a lot the massive, with a first time meeting Sue ,jo and her husband and Pauline as a special bonus.
Had an absolutely lovely time  ;)

Oh and he appeared at the stage door and even though he was obviously tired, he took his time to meet, chat and having pictures with his fans, and his new admirers  ;)

I also spoke briefly to him, but made a bit of a fool of myself answering to his question when he would see me again... " sooner then you think "    :wacko:  think I was tired as well  :-)

Lovely to meet you Taco on Friday night hope you have a safe journey home. I am still on a high as Joe was brilliant and he looked like he was enjoying every minute. Agree with Taco ADWD was awesome how he built that powerful end. I looked round the audience and it was so good to see children and grown ups of all ages,especially as most of us were on our feet clapping and singing such a good feeling everywhere. Thought the whole cast were great, I could not remember Lucy but loved her voice. My son turned to me and the end and said 'that was excellent just brilliant' I could not of agreed more. Think we will be looking for another show. Well done Joe so proud of you . We met the couple who were sat in front of us in the car park  after the show they were saying what a great voice Joe had they had not seen him before, told them to see his own show. Hopefully gained 2 more fans  :)

Close Every Door is not vocally demanding.
Emotionally it has to be played right but in terms of strain on the voice it is virtually nothing.

This is my last attempt ;) It's not about how well sung it is. It's not about the emotional impact of the song. And it's not about one song in isolation. It's about the demands of the role across the whole show. The narrator has far more to sing than Joseph. She gets virtually no breaks in the entire performance. Neither of the parts are *that* demanding vocally - certainly no where near the scale of a Christine in Phantom or Elphaba in Wicked for example, but simply by virtue of singing for longer and with few breaks, the narrator's voice is more likely to get tired than Joseph's. Of course, we should then factor in how strong their voices are. So Joe as Joseph will have more stamina than Lloyd Daniels as Joseph. And the narrator role would be water off a duck's back to someone like Kerry Ellis I would have thought. I don't remember Lucy well enough to have any thoughts on how much stamina her voice has.

I agree, The narrator is vocally the most challenging in Joseph, because in fact she almost never leaves the stage and has to sing a lot. I can't imagine doing that 3 shows a day.
That has nothing to do at how Joe sings the songs like he is doing, challenging himself to give every song the best he can do...and I might add he challenges himself big time, taking risks and uses every corner of his immense range. He brings such a multilayered version of each song so beautifully in control and adding emotion over emotion, he absolutely blew me away.  I have been privileged to have seen him a few times over the years and again he amazed me big time , his talent seems to be endless and he sure knows how to embrace new challenges.

I agree Taco. I have heard Joe sing live on a few ( :blush:) occasions and I knew CED would be great and that he wanted to beef it up as it was a relatively easy song for him to sing. But knowing all that I was still simply blown away with hearing and seeing him perform it on stage. Totally fabulous. :ten:

I had a lovely surprise this evening when my loacal BBC Points West TV programme showed a short interview with Joe at the  Playhouse talking about "Joseph" (also The Jump")  and even better he was  filmed rehearsing CED at the Theatre today.  :D   Great promotion for Joe and the Show.

Hope this link works. It is available to view for a very short time only. The piece on Joe starts at 21.00 mins.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b070jc09/bbc-points-west-16022016

Also can I just say a huge  :thankyou: to everyone for posting all your reviews, comments, videos and tweets.  Such a joy to read and watch everything on the thread.

I'm seeing Joseph later in the week -  really  looking forward to it. :D

 well   to  me the  song that  blew  me   away   was   CED --------- LUCY  IS  GOOD AND ON  STAGE   MOST OF  TIME  BUT  JOE   IS  ALSO    ON  MOST OF THE TIME  AND   CED  IS  THE    MOST ANAZING   SONG    on joseph    to  me   !!!!!!! my  personal    best    vocal  of the  whole   show   !!!!!! ive  seen  josephs   before     but   only   joe   blew  me  away  with  CED  -- i think its  joes best   vocals    and i  too  have  seen  joe  many times over years   !!!!! and  seen other   musicals   CED  is   one of   joes  best  vocals   and  me  personally     think  its   the    most    mind  blowing  song in the  whole  show  -- to  me    im  speaking  about  what i   think     not  about   anyone  elses  thoughts  xxx

Absolutely CED is the song that will blow you away from the show. It's the stand out song from the show and in Joe's hands the outcome is guaranteed.
But that's not the same thing as being technically or vocally demanding.

So very lovely to read all those marvellous tweets...thanks for posting.  I have to say that I'm guilty of popping back time after time on this site to look at the official Joseph pictures. I think they are stunning. Love the pictures of Joe with Jacob, the one with Lucy and of course, he is looking rather good in the chains too. :blush:

I've realised there are not many comments on this site about the pictures (I know there would have been more a couple of years back) but I'm sure on Twitter and Facebook they have been well received. It's great also to see that a link to these photographs has been posted on DS too.

I'm hopeful the great reviews and all the positive responses from the general public will open more doors for Joe. He totally deserves it. :thumbsup:

Quote
Weston-super-Mare Playhouse’s recent showing of Joseph And The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat has become the best-selling one-week show in the theatre’s history.

Approximately 5,500 seats were sold for the show, which starred X-Factor winner Joe McElderry in the title 
role.

It is the third time in less than 12 months that a record that had previously stood for 69 years has been smashed by the Playhouse’s box office, after West End show The Mousetrap played to 4,315 people in July and Blood Brothers attracted 4,904 in a week in October.

It follows the news that the venue’s box office turnover increased by 43 per cent in the past two years.

Playhouse general manager Mark Thompson said: “We’re delighted with the attendance figures for Joseph, which once again further cement our town’s home of entertainment as a place that we can all be proud of.

“Two years ago shows of this scale were not thought possible in Weston. We’ve proved our critics wrong and we’re delighted and thankful at the ongoing support from members of our community as we continuously try to raise the standards of live entertainment in Weston.”

:clap:

5 star review from London Theatre 1

https://www.londontheatre1.com/news/132223/5-star-joseph-and-the-amazing-technicolor-dreamcoat/

......Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is a strange musical in some ways. Whenever the show is produced, everyone concentrates on the star name playing Joseph – I first saw it with Jason Donovan in the lead role. But, there is someone that is often overlooked. They are the first person we see and the first voice we hear and they are, in reality, absolutely pivotal to the success of the performance and that is the Narrator. If the opening goes wrong it is very difficult to save the show. I’m really pleased to say that Lucy Kay was superb in her role and from the moment she came on – after what felt like to me – a slightly overly long overture – and started with the opening number it was obvious that the show was in a safe pair of hands. And this is true of the entire cast. Joe McElderry – who has really grown splendidly since his X-Factor days – really shines as Joseph, playing him as a young innocent who despite everything that life throws at him, manages to stay optimistic and believe in himself and his dreams. As with all musicals, there is always one number that has to be perfect, no matter what everything else is like. In the case of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat for me that number is ‘Close Every Door’, and Joe really, really delivered a fantastic, emotional rendition that had me sniffing away, yet again.

Having seen Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat in the West End and elsewhere over a long period – and owning the film version with Donny Osmond – I have to say this was my favourite production to date. Everything worked and worked superbly. The set by Sean Cavanagh, looked great and was beautifully laid out to make the most of Bill Kenwright’s Direction and Henry Metcalfe’s choreography and the cast looked as if not only were they enjoying themselves, they really wanted every member of the audience to enjoy the production as well. This is very true of Emilianos Stamatakis’s almost show-stealing performance as the Pharaoh. Ultimately, the show achieved its aim of entertaining the audience and just over two hours after it started the show ended and from where I was it looked as if every member of the audience was on their feet giving it the ovation it really deserved.

Sometimes, touring productions are a bit disappointing when compared to their West End original but, in the case of this production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat that is not true and we are getting a West End quality show which is hopefully coming to a theatre near you very soon. Having discussed the show with my companion as we were singing our way back home, we both agreed that while Joe was listed as the star, this awesome show was definitely worth the full five.


 :thumbsup: :thumbsup:


http://www.jonathanbaz.com/2016/03/joseph-and-amazing-technicolour.html

The role of Joseph is brilliantly filled by Joe McElderry, the former X Factor winner seeming right at home on this stage and switching effortlessly between jovial and heartfelt in his performance. McElderry’s voice is magnificent, bringing the audience to its feet during act one’s Close Every Door and then again during the reprises. Bringing a youthful vibrancy to the stage, he is made for the part.

Quote
McElderry, whose ongoing success makes him one of the most successful winners to come out of the reality genre, has certainly proved a big box office draw and going by his performance last night it’s not difficult to understand why. In arguably the best vocal display I’ve ever seen in the coveted role, the twenty-four-year-old award-winning and multiple-reality-winning (Popstar to Operastar – 2011, The Jump – 2014) performer adds a renewed freshness to the never-ending tour.

Another fantastic review

Ok it may be cheesy, but the songs are still as sing-able as ever and with the addition of McElderry, he absolutely shines as the young dreamer. His rendition of ‘Close Every Door’ had the hairs stood up on the back of my neck, he performed with such power and emotion that the young X Factor lad from Newcastle was definitely gone. That boy can truly sing and he takes the role of Joseph and makes it his own.

5 star from The Stage

https://www.thestage.co.uk/reviews/2016/joseph-and-the-amazing-technicolor-dreamcoat-review-at-churchill-theatre-bromley-utterly-ravishing/

Quote
Now another reality TV star Joe McElderry – who has won three separate competitions, from The X Factor and Popstar to Operastar as well as ski show The Jump – follows Mead, and he may just be the best sung Joseph there's ever been, bringing a vocal flair to Joseph that's utterly ravishing.

Quote
X Factor favourite Joe McElderry takes on Joseph this time and he really impressed me, although the ugg boots did not (very biblical). He had a gorgeous voice and the end of Close Every Door got the hairs on the back of my neck standing up. Unfortunately he just needs to find something to do with his hands - it is obvious Joe is used to a microphone as he feels the need to gesture constantly, which can be quite distracting, particularly in Close Every Door. Apart from that he is so confident on stage, and funny and likeable in the role.

3 star from West End Wilma

http://www.westendwilma.com/review-joseph-bromley-theatre/

Quote
Whilst McElderry is not known for his acting he plays the part of Joseph well, although at times he had a tendency to become a little too ‘cheesy’. His vocal ability and range shined through in the first few numbers and before long the energy was raising the roof and he received lots of whistles and cheers from the audience.

The set and lighting were great, with lots of colourful costumes shown and a great use of lighting used. With many old favourites such as ‘Go, Go, Go Joseph’, ‘Close Every Door’ and ‘Any Dream Will Do’ it created a great atmosphere and it had me humming the songs for the rest of the evening!

At various points in both Act 1 and 2, the sound quality did appear to suffer as well as some of the diction, which subsequently made it harder to understand what was being sung.

The Narrator, Lucy Kay, who appeared on talent show ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ gave plenty of fantastic vocals and was barely off stage during the evening.

Joseph is a well choreographed show that even after several decades, is still entertaining theatre goers. The show ends with the ‘Joseph Megamix’ and had the audience on their feet singing along and enjoying this joyous musical. Joseph is a little cheesy but it’s a fantastic treat for both children and adults alike!

Joseph was always going to be the perfect part for Joe. I'm delighted that he is getting such overwhelmingly positive press with many reviewers saying that he is vocally the best Joseph they have heard. Of course, we all knew that would be the case  :wink: .
I do hope he can continue to find suitable parts.

wow, joe was honestly incredible today! we had a bit of a nightmare with public transport, and we made our train to bromley with about 2 minutes to spare! when we got to bromley we got in a taxi and the driver was lovely, he dropped us off and when we went to pay hin, he was like, don't worry about it, just enjoy the show and have a lovely day! when we got inside a lovely lady helped us get our tickets and then we went and got some snacks. another member of staff looked after brodie during the show which was nice. we then made our way to our seats. we'll certainly be fit after going up and down all those stairs!
The show, just wow! Lucy was an incredible narrator, and joe, just pure, amazing, goose bump, heaven! If today was him singing with a cold, what on earth is he like live, singing those songs without a cold? the passion, just wow! Close every door had us both in floods! I just couldn't stop crying! Just joe's power, the way he emphasised certain words, spine tingling, wow!
I really liked the childrens choir! and the brothers were great too!
The elvis pharoh that was interesting! It went on for quite a bit, but i enjoyed it!
I don't often say this, but today, was a day where I wish I could have seen. to see the stage, to see Joe's acting, i'd love to see the coat, all those colours blended in together, sound amazing! Me and Ness both said we would have loved to have had a touch tour of the stage, that would have been amazing!
We loved the little medley at the end, the slowed down version of any dream will do, was just pure breath takingly magical! The whole production was just incredible and Joe gave it his all! I couldn't fault his performance at all!
The lady who was helping us stayed in and she loved the show! she said that regulars who have seen joseph at that theatre every year, have said Joe is the best Joseph yet, so that is great to hear!
There were so many kids in the theatre, it sounded packed!
The lady asked if we wanted to go to the stage door, but we said no. Because Joe had 3 shows to do today, we knew he wouldn't be coming out, we guessed he'd be resting. so, she walked us down to the station which was nice and we made our way home!
What an amazing day though, we want to go again! we're thinking about milton keens in july! I'm tempted with oxford, but it's like next week and i need to be careful with money.
I'm so glad Joe did this though, everyone loves him, the people next to us said they could tell we were fans, apparently we screamed and cheered for all the audience! :) a fab fab fab day! i'm now safely back at mum and dads. :)

To carry on my audio description for you .... The first coat in Canaan is like a dressing gown with a gold lining (of course) and all the  colours are thin shiney stripes.

The one when he meets up with older Jacob is a gold coat with diamond patterns. It becomes multicoloured by attaching a belt with a big circular train about 3m long and the brothers all fan it out  _ the colours are like triangular slices of cake.

The coat in the evening finale is gold with diamond shapes again but there are long lengths of different coloured silks about 3m long in lots of pockets around the waistband and these get pulled out by the brothers into a fan shape again.  They don't use this coat style in Friday or Saturday matinees I understand.

After the mega mix the final scene for curtain down is the coat with belted colours again.

All this is done by the brothers standing on a flight of steps so all the colours are clearly visible to the audience.

Hope that helps a bit.

Quote
Backed by an energetic and talented cast McElderry's Joseph shone almost as brightly as his fancy coat

In all of my 36 years, this is the first time I have ever seen a live performance of Joseph, yet I know pretty much every single word to all of the songs. Last night I surprised myself with the eerie ability to access this vault of information that has been tucked away somewhere in the recesses of my brain for about 25 years, as the 11-year-old Jason Donovan fan in me emerged blinking, yet joyous, into the brightly-lit theatre.

It may not have been Mr Donovan taking the eponymous role in this performance, but that didn't matter. In a role that has also been famously performed by Philip Schofield and Donny Osmond, Joe McElderry admittedly had some big shoes to fill, but he had no trouble in doing so. Backed by an energetic and talented cast, McElderry's Joseph shone almost as brightly as his fancy coat. His faultless vocal talent was matched only by fellow talent-show contestant Lucy Kay in her role as the Narrator. Both performers were outstanding; the backbone to a timeless family show that had the audience at the New Theatre on its feet by the megamix at the end.

Mark Shenton: What makes a five-star show?

https://www.thestage.co.uk/opinion/2016/mark-shenton-what-makes-a-five-star-show/

Quote
In the past few weeks, I've come out to bat for Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, The Mother at the Tricycle Theatre, and Nell Gwynn (transferred from Shakespeare's Globe to the Apollo), awarding them all five-star raves. I very nearly awarded the National Theatre's Ma Rainey's Black Bottom and Hampstead Theatre's Rabbit Hole five stars as well, but in the end settled on four.

For five stars, a show has to go the extra distance, providing a particular kind of pleasure. For Joseph, that was to see a well-loved (or even well-worn) standard that has been doing the rounds for 36 years – albeit periodically renewed – completely reinvigorated by the presence of the best sung Joseph I've ever heard, Joe McElderry. For The Mother, I was simply shattered by this forensic examination of depression. And for Nell Gwynn, I was exhilarated and delighted by its sheer theatricality.

Delighted that Joe gets 5* from The Stage, an industry publication with more specialist knowledge of what it takes to make a great performer than most of the provincial newspapers.

Torsten_Andy_Bell_Above_The_StagTorsten the Beautiful Libertine continues at the Above the Stag Theatre, London until 27 March.

Star rating: three stars ★ ★ ★ ✩ ✩

By now the theatre world has become accustomed to rock and pop stars moving into musical theatre territory. Joe McElderry is currently winning plaudits as Joseph on tour and of course, Mamma Mia!, Jersey Boys, Beautiful and now Motown the Musical all owe their scores to pop groups.

I asked her if he sang close every door:

During the tour there’s probably been a few nudges and whispers about the fact Joe McElderry isn’t as slight as when he appeared on our screens in The X Factor.

Sorry, what ??  - what the actual ...  :angry:  Do people think that it is ok to write this kind of thing when reviewing a show.   :roll3:

The meaning of slight in this instance:

(of a person or their build) not sturdy; thin or slender.
"she was slight and delicate-looking"
synonyms:   slim, slender, slightly built, petite, diminutive, small, delicate, dainty, small-boned, elfin; More

What is the relevance?  and why "a few nudges and whispers" as if it was something shameful.   Sorry I know the rest of the review praised Joe but this annoyed me.

In between trying to sell my flat (and failing) I have managed to fit in 3 more Josephs  :D
I went to one with a friend who has seen Joe once in concert. He was impressed by Joe and enjoyed the whole production.

I was in Oxford this weekend and saw two.   :roll:

It was a fab weekend but I'm absolutely shattered!  Long days travelling and sightseeing in Oxford and late nights after the shows chattering to Joefans!!

I have seen the show from the front row, middle stalls and front row of the circle.  I think the circle was my fav.

Joe had a bad cold at Bromley but I never would have guessed.  I have discovered new things in each show and I think Joe is learning all the time.  His vocals are very strong and he appears to be (almost) comfortable being half naked for a lot of the show.   :hot:

My fav part of the show is Joe doing a bit of Elvis by the side of the stage.  Unfortunately you have to have seen it to know what I mean.  I love how the audience are focused on centre stage and then realise something interesting is going on at the side of the stage - and there is Joe being very funny!!!

After the Oxford shows those of us waiting to see Joe at the stage door were well rewarded.  Friday evening Joe was taking a taxi with other cast members back to where they were staying.  The taxi was delayed and Joe stood with us having a natter.  I told him that his short Elvis scene was my fav part of the show.  He said that he felt really awkward doing it and I think he was surprised I liked it!!  My other 'fav' part is peaking through my opera glasses at Joe getting changed in the prison at the back of the stage    :roll3:    I didn't tell him that though   :blush:   I wondered if Joe would let his hair grow long but he said he will have it trimmed from time to time.  He looks so different now - I think I miss the old Joe!! 

On the Saturday we waited more than an hour for Joe.  Most of those waiting were well known Joe fans and he was very relaxed chatting to everyone, laughing and joking.  He apologised for not being able to acknowledge fans he spotted in the audience until the reprise at the very end of the show.  It was soooooo sweet of him.  He has been told not to do it during the show - and why should he - he must stay in character.  It is obvious at the end of the show that he can't wait to have a look out at the audience for familiar faces!!  A word of warning to those near the front - there are camera's on the audience at the front of the stage and when the cast are waiting for the curtain to go up they have a bit of a chuckle watching the audience   :haha:

The actor that plays Jacob is also the choreographer and has played in Oxford many times.  He advised the cast that Oxford audiences seldom get on their feet for the sing-a-long at the end of the show.  Some did at the Friday evening show - but at the last show on Saturday the whole theatre was on their feet, encouraged, no doubt, by a strong turnout of regulars in the front rows.  It was a fabulous atmosphere and Joe thanked the audience from the stage for being amazing!  And no, he doesn't say that every time!! 

As each member of the cast left the theatre after the Saturday show, the people waiting at the stage door applauded them and they stopped for a chat and pics.

One of the people waiting was an American who is living in Oxford.  He was familiar with Joseph but did not know Joe at all.  He thought he was the best Joseph he had seen.  He was gobsmacked by his vocals and that he was doing ALL the shows - even the three each Saturday.  He said it wouldn't happen in the USA.

I just might have to do it all again, maybe at Milton Keynes, although nothing planned at the moment.

Post by: excitedbyjoe on March 14, 2016, 01:56:32 PM
Thanks Louise.

My understanding was that the cameras are trained on the musical director - it's just that as he is in an orchestra pit on a podium at Oxford, 4 members of the front row end up being on the camera seen by the cast backstage. I don't think Joe was saying that's the case at every venue.

It did mean that 2 guys taking unauthorised videos with their phones from front row  were spotted and ended up being thrown out.

 :thankyou: Louise for that lovely review and will definitely keep my eyes on Joe when he is with Elvis as although have seen it three times missed that as was looking elsewhere.  Would like to add that I have enjoyed the choir and watching their faces, and what a great job they have all done, some of them are really into it whilst others are more shy.  All in all a fantastic production and will never tire of watching and listening to Joe singing and all the cast, they seem to be enjoying it too. 😊

Lovely to read such great reviews from everyone who went to see Joe.
So pleased for Joe that this is going amazingly well.  :wavehat:
Its what we have always hoped for and its definitely an encouragement to persevere.

@P4ULAWILLIAMS @joemcelderry91 'Well Pharaoh Man' 😂😂😘😘 https://www.instagram.com/p/BDGwjnmo2hC/

This is a short vid of my very fav part.  It's towards the end of the scene so may not come across as funny as it is. Pharaoh has just finished his 'elvis' song and Joe is at the side of the stage in his own little world singing along to Pharaoh's song not realising that Pharaoh has finished singing.     :haha:

What I found unexpected, though, was just how good the curly-haired pop singer was in the role of the Biblical boy dreamer.

He had all the charm the role required, a cheeky personality all his own, and a fantastic voice that lifted his character out of the ordinary.

His rendition of Close Every Door To Me may well be the best I’ve heard in three decades of watching Joseph – his powerful performance made the lyrics meaningful, emotional, and for a moment both political and spiritual.

You could really identify with the young man betrayed by his brothers, imprisoned in a strange land and struggling to hold onto his dreams.

Another glowing review

Quote
If it had then it didn't show because Mr McElderry was excellent, entertaining, full of voice and worthy of appearing on the stage. Clearly his four albums and stage performances have removed any rough corners that might once have existed, and his very pointed diction gave a clue to the fact that he has most definitely been voice coached!

Quote
Joseph is fun, uplifting, leaves you with a big smile on your face and, I am delighted to report, Joe McElderry has firmly stepped out of the Cowell shadow. No more deals in the dressing room Simon, this bonny lad is on his way!

For me the role of Joseph will always belong to Jason Donovan, but I have to admit, having seen the show dozens of times, Joe McElderrry is the best Joseph I have seen since the iconic Donovan.

McElderry is totally believable. He can act, sing and puts his own stamp on the role, especially with the highly charged emotional Close Every Door to Me which was pure gold.

Phillip Schofield @Schofe

Phillip was excellent in the role but a little too old in my opinion.  He was the first one I saw of the present runs of the show.  I did see Jess Conrad back in the early 80s and then Phillip twice, followed by Lee Mead twice!

I think Phillip was only about 30 when he did it. But I suppose that's fair bit older than Joe and Jason Donovan. Have only seen them on you tube but get the feeling the part calls for someone who looks fairly young.

That's great.
There has been some publicity around a Joseph anniversary event recently with Phillip responding to suggestions that he reprise his role. Maybe Joe would get a look in?

Quote
Joe McElderry has been good from the moment the curtain rose; he has a good voice, obviously, and can really handle the comedy, but on Close Every Door he completely takes over, his voice filled with emotion and absolutely soaring; he has the audience breathless. This wasn’t one of my favourite songs in the past, but he has made it his own and I can’t imagine anyone performing it better. For his efforts he receives rapturous applause.

Quote
So, to sum up… This is an epic show. Joe McElderry puts the Joe into Joseph. Lucy Kay puts diamonds in the sky. The ensemble are stunning, all hugely talented performers. Every one of them should get a pay rise… whatever they earn it isn’t enough.

This is by far… seriously, BY FAR the best production of this show I have ever seen. Quite simply it’s a Technicolor Dreamshow. If you don’t like fun then avoid at all costs.

And there's definitely a star on the stage as former X Factor winner Joe McElderry takes on the lead role in Joseph And The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.

In a role that could have almost made for him - if you didn't know that the musical was 46 years old - Joe shows off that golden voice that won the votes in droves on the X Factor in 2009.
Quote
His captivating rendition of Close Every Door , even to the ears of a devoted Jason Donovan fan from back in the day, has to be the greatest version that you will hear - strong and silken.
Quote
As the judges would say on the X Factor, Joe has smashed it.

Tonight it’s the turn of 2009 X-Factor winner Joe McElderry to don the coat of many colours, from the minute he begins to sing you know you’re in the presence of a true star, his voice is simply perfect, smooth and powerful with a cheeky and hugely likeable personality on top. His performance is a masterclass in musical theatre, undoubtedly the best Joseph I’ve seen, (and I’m old enough to have swooned at Jason Donovan and Phillip Schofield). McElderry’s star will no doubt continue to rise and deservedly so, he belongs on the stage and brings such pleasure to the audience it’s hard not to fall a little bit in love with him. The whoops and cheers from his dedicated fans who have travelled to see him are soon added to by the rest of the audience he has easily won over.

I made a last minute decision to go and see the matinee show today, I enjoyed Blackpool so much just had to watch Joe again. I was in heaven listening and watching Joe on that stage he seems to be so comfortable. His voice just brilliant as always. The whole cast outstanding and of course the children's choir. I was so proud of Joe coming out after the show the comments I heard from people were great they were saying Joe was the best Joseph they had ever seen and what a lovely voice. It is no wonder Joe is getting such fantastic reviews he thoroughly deserves it. I came out feeling so good with all the songs in my head and even managed to get hubby singing them when I got home. Well done Joe hopefully you have made plenty of new fans today  :ilovejoe:

It's so good to read all the wonderful comments too. Joe is reminding so many people out there of why he won X factor with his lovely voice and how talented he is on the stage in musical theatre too. 😀

Has the show been well received in Grimsby?. The reason I ask is the last post on Joe's Facebook page relates to Rhyl, no mention of arriving in Grimsby.

The only tweet I have seen about Grimsby was dated 12th & have not seen any feedback here on the forum either.

He hasn't really tweeted or retweeted much this week. Try following lucykayofficial as she's much better at retweeting.

Joe seems to have switched from Instagram to more snapchat this week.

i'm very excited guys, a twitter client that i'm using that's been developed for the blind, now has support so we can read text in images on twitter, I just found this review from a picture that was posted. sorry if this is already here, i just want to bring this across. Joseph isn't an easy part to play. You
have to find somebody who remains
steadfastly likeable, from his various
incarnations as arrogant spoilt sibling,
wretched prisoner and ruler on high.
And they must look presentable, but not
in any suggestible Game Of Thrones sort
of way, while half naked.
Joe McElderry succeeds on every level. It
is impossible not to warm to a man with
that grin. His teeth are amazing. It looks
like his face has been possessed by the
spirit of Osmonds past.
And the X Factor audience knows their
stuff: the 2009 series winner can sing.
When he opens his lungs at the end of
Close Every Door To Me he almost
blasted open every fire exit in the house.
Remarkable.

Totally confused, was checking remaining venues for "Joseph" clicked on the venue for Kings Theatre Glasgow which was showing the photo of Joe on the advert. When I clicked on it (was going to check how ticket sales were doing) a picture of Ian H Watkins from steps was on the poster with him playing the lead role.

Has there been an error by the theatre or is Joe not appearing in Glasgow?

 :thumbsup: Great reviews well deserved but like I have said on previous occasions the pop/rock music industry at present is a closed shop to the likes of Joe.

However I do believe there are people in the music industry who are aware of Joe's talent, However I would like his management team to get him heard outside the UK. I personally think Joe would do well in the US. I'm not talking about a mega venue just somewhere small to enable him to be heard & seen by an american audience.

My dream for Joe would be for a top song writer to collaborate with him to produce the 5th album & to showcase it performing with a live orchestra.

He will be 25 in June still young & still learning his trade, so plenty of time for all this to come to fruition.

 :thankyou: Susie D for the links to the paper reviews.

In my opinion, what Cowell thinks is irrelevant  - I think Joe's success in Joseph would probably just confirm to Simon that he was right that he couldn't market Joe as a "pop star". He has a very narrow field of vision.

I hope Joe is keeping every review as I don't think there's been a single bad one. I particularly liked the uktheatrenet review - although they had Lucy and the brothers the wrong way round in terms of the show I saw :)
Thank you Susie for finding and posting them  :yourock:

Cowell is not clever enough to see beyond a certain very well defined set of attributes. Brilliant male vocals is not one of them. He could have made Joe a star if his views were not so fixed. As it is, I think an opportunity has been missed, but pop's loss is musical theatre's gain. There are many stars of musical theatre who alternate medium length runs in shows with concert tours and some recording. They do tend to have a more musical theatre repertoire in their shows/albums though  Hopefully Joe will be able to join them.

i agree SC is only about money, instant easy money, and is not afraid to use people to get what he wants.

Brilliant reviews again, and it makes me very proud that in all of them Joe's voice and his acting is highly praised. Production companies are very aware of that, I bet he will get a lot of offers to do more musical theater roles.

I can;t wait to see it again in MK. :hurrah:

It appears from twitter that Joe is not able to do a show today (maybe all of them, it is unclear) and that it will be the understudy instead.  I can't see any confirmation of this though just lots of tweets wishing Tom (?) good luck and get well wishes to Joe?  Any one able to confirm is this is correct?

Joe did the 8pm show and his voice held out which is good news but I hope he's looking after himself and appreciating that this is a heavy and tiring schedule.

Post by: judetheobscure on May 16, 2016, 12:05:51 AM
Not many people at that age go through a year without a cold or two. Just unlucky that it's got his voice this time. He's doing the right thing by reducing his schedule now. Hopefully he'll be better in time for the next performance.

I thought the Daily Record review was pretty accurate. That's the show that I saw, although the brothers were better than the reviewer said and why should Joseph be looking skinny? That's the whole point, that he didn't suffer seven years of famine because they stockpiled  :roll:

Joe hasn't got a cold and can speak. He just lost his singing vocal.

Yes the review was wrong about the famine but Joe was incarcerated for a few years beforehand wasn't he? ;)

Joseph was well-looked after at Potiphar's and was one of the favoured prisoners in jail.

Someone elsewhere said it was a cold. A bit more worrying if it isn't.

I particularly liked this bit

Quote
Talking of wiping away misconceptions, where do you start with Joe McElderry? Firstly, can we take the whole 'X Factor winner' thing and put it in a box in the corner, please? McElderry is a hugely talented, compelling performer with a voice that matched world class theatre performers

I even more liked what followed :D

Fantastic reviews and they are just getting better.  I first saw Joseph in Blackpool, Manchester and Bromley but last night just blew me away at Wolverhampton.  He has progressed so much working with a talented and professional cast.  Theatre was full with a full standing ovation and he looked so happy.  Think this may well lead to more roles in the theatre but sure he will never not do his own shows.  For those of us who have been with him since 2009 life just gets better.

Lee Mead was very good. Vocally not so strong but a better actor. There are many ways of interpreting the role and each new Joseph can bring something different to it.

 I've seen Lee Mead in a concert in Cardiff not so long ago. It was charity concert involving school choirs from around Wales and he was a guest performer. He sang a few songs (can't remember what they were but not from Joseph) and I can honestly say I was not impressed in the least. No real stage presence and I didn't think his voice was anything special.

According to the tweets , Tom did a great job.

Do we know what is wrong with Joe?  Is it because of his birthday or is he ill ?

If I had had a ticket for the Friday shows I would have asked for a refund & spent the money on a show from his "Northern Lights" tour. No disrespect to Tom but it was Joe I paid my money to see perform.

Don't take this the wrong way but since the Sunderland show Joe has practically ignored his facebook page & there has been a lack of enthusiasm on his twitter page. I was wondering if things behind stage not going as smoothly anymore.

Unlike Joe to have put several performances at risk by over celebrating his birthday & disappointing fans. If he was ill then surely a release stating that Joe was ill should have been released.

Would anyone here on joenuts not have been disappointed after taking their seats to discover when the curtain rose, Joe had been replaced by the understudy. I certainly would.

Not many weeks left of "Joseph The Musical", is it possible Joe is to be replaced by Tom. From some tweets I have come across he is as good as Joe in the roll.

Doesn't look as if Joe is on today either - he must have done some celebrating the other night. I must say if I had booked to see Joe I would have been very disappointed that he wasn't there especially if his absence was self inflicted. If he is genuinely ill that's a different story. I can't believe that Joe would have overdone the celebrations especially when he knew he had shows the next two days in my eyes that would have been unprofessional of him and certainly not what I thought Joe would ever do.

If he is genuinely ill I hope he does take care of himself.

Nothing on Joe's twitter page either or an explanation from the theatre. He is to professional to have allowed a party celebration be the cause of his absence.

Still wonder if all not so rosy back stage as the only birthday celebration pictures I have seen are the presentation on stage of a b/day cake, his dressing room showing gifts & one posted by ashlowes.  Lucy & the cast nowhere to be seen.

Still feel uncomfortable with no explanation being forthcoming.   :worried:

Give the guy a break please.
I know a bit about theater and musicals and in these circumstances while doing a very long tour of 8 shows a week during months Joe has only not performed a very few times. The ones he missed were either scheduled or due to his voice not up to standard because of a cold.
With all the traveling of course someone is bound to catch a cold , he is human after all.
His work ethic is fantastic, he definitely has what it takes to do musical theater. In fact he would do perfect in a major role in London Westend.

What I hear from numerous fans that have seen the show more then once in more then one city, the cast is one big family...and going by twitter, all the Joe fans I know are having a fantastic time with not only Joe, but with the whole cast. And that cast are experiencing the McElderryMassive love, and I can tell you some are overwhelmed by it, that is something quite exceptional in productions like this...most of the times the cast members don't have a lot of fans, or get a lot of feedback.

Kudos to Tom as well from me, it is not easy to take the lead only this few times , when all eyes are on you, because some people might be disappointed that the main man is not there to perform. I heard he nailed it, and that is a great achievement. Well done Tom!

Piusha .
Before you start having a go at Joe perhaps you should get your facts right.
Joe does go on Facebook and Twitter on a regular basis.
He is working his socks off in Joseph giving it absolutely  100% .
If he is not well he is is not well I didn't  go to work if I was ill.
I am afraid these things happen in life .
He did not miss any of his shows because he was hung over from his birthday you don't  know him very well if you think he would do this to anyone who had come along to see him.

 :thankyou: Trudy for the info on last night's show

If Joe wasn't performing he would let us know why whether it be due to a prior engagement or illness Sore throats could be the end of a singer's career if nodules (correct me if I'm wrong) grow on their vocal chords I've read of singers having these removed and some have been unable to sing as well as they did before

Unfortunately there wasn't any information on Joe's twitter prior to his not performing in the earlier Brighton shows. I don't know if this was deliberate (to limit the number of people trying to return/exchange tickets) or if this was an oversight.

You are correct about the nodules though. Joe will need to be careful as he uses his voice in very different ways depending on whether he is singing in a classical style or a pop style. Julie Andrews is a very famous example of someone who was unable to sing after having an operation for nodule removal, though it seems it was a botched operation.

He has just tweeted he has been fighting a cold all week and will be on this evening.

Actually he tweeted that he'd had a sore throat. Lucy and George who he travels around with and socialises most with had sore throats too. He didn't have a cold as such.

My understanding from what he said after Saturday night's show was that after singing at the 5pm Friday show it was felt ( not sure if him or whoever is in charge) that he would not have managed the 8pm show too. He still had the voice issue on Saturday and although he arrived at the theatre at 11.30 ready to do all 3,  it was decided that his voice wouldn't cope with all 3 shows. Presumably they played it by ear and Tom was given maybe an hour's notice he would be on.

I can confirm that those who didn't have travel home issues did swap their tickets on hearing Joe would only do the 8pm show. Some fans were unable to swap due to trains and were disappointed of course. I'm not aware if anyone asked for a refund but I'm sure the small print on the tickets may not warrant that.

As to fears expressed here that not all is well backstage / that couldn't be further from the truth. Joe's having a great time - he socialises with most of the cast before and after the shows.

It's true that his fb and Twitter are neglected somewhat - he seems to have replaced it with snapchat. If fans here follow Lucy, Lewis, George, Will or the rest of the cast then they would be satisfied that lots of fun is being had.

Having said that, I do agree that he should have tweeted an explanation before the 3 shows he missed but maybe he is told not to in order to stop ticket swap/refund chaos at the box office.

I was lucky to have both 5pm and 8pm tickets so that did allow me to see Tom to compare to Joe. Tom is too "musical theatre" for my taste though I can understand why he would still have positive tweets - he looked good in the loincloth and in terms of his acting and vocal I expect that he's probably as good as any other recent Joseph, excepting our boy of course. :cool:

Looks as if Joe is continuing with Joseph again in 2017 - saw a tweet but can't copy it over sorry it's from Jan to march I think. 

To be honest not sure I like this - to me it means he has nothing else planned and album 5 further away  :blush: :tissue:

I am being selfish but I want album 5 asap he has exhausted his last 4 albums and he can't keep doing tours with them in my opinion

His fantastic performances and great reviews must have won him many new fans. So now must be the time for new music, more writing, more chances for people to hear him as a solo artist of manifest talent. There are many wonderful musical theatre talents, but there is really almost nobody like Joe. He must take advantage of this exposure and let the world know that he is here. Please Joe, now that so many more people have seen and heard your awesome talent, give them more and make 'em listen.  :ilovejoe:

I've always said I don't think album 5 is on the cards. Who would play it and would it sell?? Joe is having rave reviews but it doesn't mean they would go to any of Joes shows. We also have to remember Joe needs to earn a living.

I agree with you Jenni - Joe is receiving rave reviews and is clearly enjoying earning a living from doing something he loves so much. (Not everyone can say they enjoy their job with such passion!). This role may pave the way to other roles within musical theatre - releasing an album at this current time, I feel, will not be anyway as successful as continuing to perform as Joseph. This may change in the future.

Several artists put back album releases time and time again. I believe Matt Cardle has delayed his until 2017 and Aston from JLS has still not release his solo album either - so Joe's album delay is far from unusual.

I am not too disappointed about a possible delay of the album.

I just saw Joseph again after 4 months and I truly believe he is born to do this. Exceptional natural talent, still amazed at how effortless he made the role his own, how naturally he 'acts' the well known songs and how he reaches every corner of a fairly big theater with that voice. Again still after all those years, once I hear it again I cant believe how phenomenal those vocals really are.

Cast are such a lovely bunch of talented people, their energy is amazing and no sign of being fed up after all those months , I think it was even more vibrant and energetic then months ago, and I was already quite impressed then.
Loved it, had a quick chat and picture with him afterwards  :ilovejoe:

Ive seen Joseph several times and will see it again on Saturday, I then have the bike ride 🚴 to look forward to and a tour in the Autumn. In fact I will support Joe in whatever he decides to do. Somethings I will like more than others but support him I will!

It's Joes life and career and he clearly is having a ball and earning his living - who knows what the future holds for him but it's simple you either support him or you don't. The decision is yours. I know what I'll be doing..

Post by: judetheobscure on July 03, 2016, 12:25:12 PM
I'm with Jenni, Susie and Tacom on this one. We have to be realistic about what is achievable. A career in musical theatre is certainly achievable with some solo shows slotted in here and there. I don't think long tours like SYSA and Evolution are going to be achievable for much longer. And album 5 is unlikely to be a money earner at the moment so there is little incentive to get it out quickly.

I agree long tours won't be achievable for much longer but I think there will be a few of Joes along the way to keep fans happy and of course Joe himself who loves performing. Joes career choice is a hard one so I think he's doing extremely well at the moment and obtaining longevity in his chosen career. The rest we will just have to wait and see.

I forget which thread it was on, but people were saying that Joe won't be able to continue with long tours like Evolution.  What was the reason for that?  Is it declining audiences, lack of new material (songs), costs of a backing band?

I can see there is a worldwide problem with producing new albums thanks to You Tube, and therefore new songs to sing.

Well, it was certainly worth the wait.  Joe was magnificent and his voice is out of this world.  I really enjoyed the way he acted the part of Joseph, starting off as the favourite son and seeming to think everyone would think he was the best, then the business with the Egyptians and being put in prison where he was very low and unhappy.  Then his elevation to Pharaoh's No.2!  He even walked in a different way!  :bravo:

All the cast were superb as well.  The theatre was packed to the rafters with several school parties in.   All in all a grand day out!   :goofy:

Southern Echo Review (http://www.dailyecho.co.uk/leisure/stage/14601178.LAST_NIGHT__39_S_REVIEW__Joseph_and_the_Amazing_Technicolor_Dreamcoat__Mayflower_Theatre/)

This is the bit about Joe:

Quote
With his charming smile and dimpled cheeks, Joe was made for the role of Jacob’s favourite youngest son – and he can really sing; his incredibly powerful, moving rendition of Close Every Door had members of the audience spontaneously jumping to their feet and applauding.

It was here. I'd say all of the above. He could branch out into  more musical theatre repertoire. I don't think he is going to get new audiences with unknown songs that are not backed up with a new album. I don't know what attendance was like at Evolution. Northern Light seems to be mostly north based so far.

I liked the curls to begin with but I am looking forward to something new now!

I was just checking the new tour dates for Joseph for 2017   ;)     The tour starts on 24 January.  Joe's panto ends on 22 January! - so that's going to be interesting.........

Joe has been asked directly (not by me sadly) about whether he is doing Joseph in 2017.  He replied that he is not allowed to talk about it.    :bash:

Given celebagents recent attempt to promote Joe for Strictly - if Joe really is going to be doing all these things he will really need to be 'superjoe'.    ahha!! I thought there was one of these   :superjoe:

I am keeping fingers crossed he isn't - I would like something better for Joe - it really annoys me that Joe isn't allowed to say anything but the theatres can advertise him as doing it.

I did see celebagents promoting him for strictly and that would be brilliant.  Unfortunately I think celebagent aren't to bothered  what he is doing as long as Joe is working - if Joe has no work I assume they won't get paid.

On another note i wish he wouldn't  do panto - it maybe fun but I strongly  believe he is so much better than that.

I am still hoping for a new single/album  :ilovejoe:

Would be great if Joe got to do Strictly at some point in his career but I think his height will be to much of a disadvantage as most of the female dancers perform in heels so they would always be taller than him.

I'm surprised Joe is to continue performing in Joseph especially if it is another 6 month tour. For it to continue to be a success it will need to have the same cast with Lucy as narrator.

Am I the only one that thinks it is time Celeb Agents got Joe an appearance in America or Europe, his role as Joseph has proved what a vocal talent he is. I'm sure he is happy with his agent & no disrespect to them but surely Pittsburgh should'nt be his only performance outside the UK.

I agree judetheobscure there are others who would do justice to the roll but the success of the show has not been how brilliant Joe has performed but the whole cast & production. So will the production & the cast remain the same & will it be another 6 month run for the show?

Would have been great if it had a few performances in the "West End" that would certainly have opened up Joe's talent to a wider audience. Thinking of tourists from abroad who may not have heart of Joe.

The show has been running for many years with many different narrators and many different Josephs. The show is successful because of what it is and not so much who stars in it. However, there is no doubt that Joe has had exceptional reviews throughout and I'm sure the producers would be keen for him to remain.

Things have moved on in the last seven years when Joe entered X Factor it's a very tough business to be in. In my ideal world Joe would bring out album 5 it would be played on the radio and go to number 1 but it's not going to happen so let's move on. Joe's loved playing Joseph and in my opinion will do it again and that's not because David wants him to do it but Joe himself.  I think the show could be successful with another cast but who's to say the original cast members won't join him or at least some of them.

I've loved Joes curls but if he wants a change that's fine by me., I love how Joe follows fashion and let's face it he really going to take fashion advice from a bunch of old ladies  I think not. Joe will follow the career path he wants we either support him or move on. We all  have that choice.

I have to agree with Jenni as well.
I think if album No5 would be out now, we are all back at square one when it would not sell as much as the media would want it, they would label him again a a loser.
The best thing that I hope that would happen in my opinion is recording a cast album of Joseph. Next year it will be the show's 50th anniversary and how great will it be that he will lend his fabulous vocals to that occasion.
After 6 months of getting those raving reviews ,he would of course sign up for another few months of touring with this show, especially that 50th anniversary is coming up soon, who know what will happen...he might even end up on westend.

It will never be the only thing that he will be doing, I am 100% sure he will keep writing songs, recording songs and he will be doing musical theater in other shows as well.

It never ceases to amaze me how talented he really is. I know after all these years of seeing him perform that he is a very gifted singer, but each time I hear his voice live in the audience I am honestly still amazed and surprised how phenomenal that vocals really are. He is born to do this, he is born to perform and he will aways be performing.

This seems very clear that Joe will be continuing as Joseph: amazing-technicolor-dreamcoat#scr-moreinfo
I will make a new thread for the 2017 tour.

If it does happen then I'm assuming it's for team Joe to officially announce ? Maybe label " speculation" until then ?

Apologies - the link didn't work. Here it is again: http://www.bradford-theatres.co.uk/whats-on/joseph-and-the-amazing-technicolor-dreamcoat#scr-moreinfo
It really couldn't be more clear. It says Joe McElderry as Joseph. Tickets are already on sale to members and go on general sale on Monday.

Other dates also listed here: http://www.atgtickets.com/shows/joseph-and-the-amazing-technicolor-dreamcoat-tickets/
And here: https://orchardtheatre.co.uk/online/default.asp?doWork::WScontent::loadArticle=Load&BOparam::WScontent::loadArticle::article_id=BA2E8981-DB79-47D7-A56B-762D0B53589C
And other places. I don't think it can be classed as speculation any more.

I don't know where the New Theatre Royal in Portsmouth is!  I was thinking that the Guildhall or Kings Theatre, Southsea might be the venues but they don't seem to be the right ones.

Edited:  It's OK I just Googled it and found it in Guildhall Walk.

So quite near the station?  We usually catch the train from Portsmouth Harbour to P and Southsea and then we walk.
