Husband-and-wife team Ace Young and Diana DeGarmo first met when they shared the Broadway stage in the 2009 revival of HAIR. "I am so excited to star as 'Joseph' alongside Diana," said Ace. "It's great to be back! I too am so excited to star alongside Ace in the very role I once looked up to years ago as a child in the choir," added Diana.
One of the most enduring shows of all time, JOSEPH is the family musical about the trials and triumphs of Joseph, Israel's favorite son. JOSEPH is the first collaboration of composer Andrew Lloyd Webber (Jesus Christ Superstar, Phantom of the Opera, Cats) and lyricist Tim Rice (Jesus Christ Superstar, The Lion King). JOSEPH blends pop, country and rock into an uplifting, technicolored story which has been enjoyed by scores of audiences for decades, and includes such memorable songs as Those Canaan Days, Any Dream Will Do and Close Every Door.
The production design team includes scenic design by Beowulf Boritt, costume design by Jennifer Caprio, lighting design by Howell Binkley, sound design by John Shivers and David Patridge, projection & video design by Daniel Brodie, music supervision by David Kreppel and music direction by Wayne Green.
