Preview Report: JOSEPH AND THE AMAZING TECHNICOLOUR DREAMCOAT

Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat Having not seen Joseph and The Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat for some 30 years, it is quite a lovely surprise to be reminded just how good Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s score is.

Review: EUGENIUS at The Other Palace

Eugenius! - The Eunique New Musical In the programme notes of EUGENIUS, Andrew Lloyd Webber states that he wants The Other Palace to be a ‘space where writers and producers can try out and refine their work’. By taking away the need for big sets and automation, the focus can be on ‘the writing of the show itself’. EUGENIUS seems the perfect example of this ethos. After a rather confusing and troubled workshop in 2016, Ben Adams and Chris Wilkins have taken the time to crystalise their vision and clarify the story of this quirky American 80’s Geek-fest.
