The shows must come to an end – but not before a final YouTube stream of ‘Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat’.

This Friday 10 July, Andrew Lloyd Webber and co are treating us to a final production in The Shows Must Go On series, as it concludes its first season.

Joseph and the Technicolor Dreamcoat (1999), which will be available on YouTube from 7pm BST, was the first show to kick off the free series, back in April.

Directed by David Mallett and inspired by the record-breaking London Palladium show, its all-star cast includes Donny Osmond as Joseph, Olivier Award winner Maria Friedman as the narrator, Richard Attenborough as Jacob and the ever-iconic Joan Collins as Mrs Potiphar.

From ‘Close Every Door to Me’ and ‘Go Go Go Joseph’ to the charming ‘Any Dream Will Do’, audiences can expect all the usual classics from the hit Lloyd Webber-Tim Rice musical.

How can I watch the Joseph musical for free?

The livestream for Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat will be available on Friday 10 July from 7pm BST, 11am PT and 2pm ET.

You can watch the production via YouTube channel The Shows Must Go On, but you’ll only have 48 hours to view the show.

Although the stream is free, audiences are encouraged to donate money if they can to The Actors Fund, which supports performers who may be struggling during the coronavirus pandemic with emergency financial assistance, affordable housing, healthcare, and more.

As lockdown begins to ease in many parts of the world and people adjust to their “new normal”, this colourful production with lyrics from Tim Rice could be just the tonic to lift our spirits.
