Union J star Jaymi Hensley to star in UK Tour of JOSEPH AND THE AMAZING TECHNICOLOR DREAMCOAT
Union J star Jaymi Hensley will star in his first ever major musical, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat on it’s UK Tour from February – July 2019.
The production of Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s family musical embarks on a national tour with a new Joseph, from 20th February at Theatre Royal Windsor.
Jaymi Hensley, a member of 2013’s BBC ‘British Breakthrough Band’ of the year, rose to fame on The X Factor. Union J went on to have a top ten album and a major UK tour and Jaymi later appeared on a number of hit TV shows, including Celebrity Masterchef (BBC One).
Full of life and colour, the magical musical features unforgettable and timeless songs including Go, Go, Go Joseph, Any Dream Will Do, Jacob and Sons and Close Every Door To Me.
Retelling the Biblical story of Joseph, his eleven brothers and the coat of many colours, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is the first of Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musicals to be performed publicly. Seen by an estimated 26 million people, and counting, Joseph continues to enthral audiences around the world.
It is an interesting decision to tour this show right now, as a huge production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat will play at the London Palladium this Summer. The Palladium is a huge theatre to fill and if people can see the show on tour, closer to where they live and at a fraction of the price, perhaps people won’t flock to see the London production. Casting for this summers West End show is yet to be announced and so perhaps a big star name will draw in the crowds to London!
