In this filmed adaption of the long-running musical, we see the story of Joseph, son of Jacob. The favored son, he is betrayed by his jealous brothers and sold into slavery and driven to Egypt. Though beset with adversity, Joseph perseveres through wit and faith and becomes the Governor of Egypt, second only to the Pharaoh.

Some folks dream of the wonders they'll do before they're time on this planet is through. Some just don't have anything planned, they hide their hopes and their heads in the sand.

This musical provides everything. I have been a fan of the music of Joseph for many years but I never saw it on stage. As soon as I saw that this production was being made I was very wary of televising a theatrical show but boy was I wrong. The special effects, colors, sound and quality of this production are amazing.
This is the retelling of the biblical story of Joseph and tries a variety of musical numbers, from the Elvis Pharaoh, to the Calypso Judah and the French brothers. All these numbers are in amazing colors.
This really is worth a look, entertaining and very re-watchable!
