The latest reincarnation of Joseph in the form of former X Factor winner, Joe McElderry is a hit. What he lacks in the body department, he more than makes up for
vocally. His voice is the right mix of emotions and strength needed for this roll, and he does have a certain cheeky charm about him.
The production was fast paced
and lively and the whole cast looked like they were having a ball performing it. Notable performances from Lucy Kay (former runner up in BGT) as the Narrator,
Marcus Ayton as Issacher who performed a brilliant calypso number, and Tilly Ford who danced seductively as Mrs Potiphar, the star of the show for me though, had
to be Emilianos Stamatakis, his interpretation of Pharaoh was amazing and funny.
Although uncredited the sheep and the talking camel were definitely a highlight.
Overall the show was a fantastic mix with something for everyone and I would definitely recommend seeing it.
