Based on the story of Joseph from the Bible, this light hearted show was first presented as a cantata at the Colet Court School in London on March 1, 1968 and lasted only fifteen minutes. Due to its instant success, Rice and Webber decided to release a small album of the show in 1969, which had been extended. The album didn't do well until Webber and Rice released their second musical album, Jesus Christ Superstar, an immediate hit. Joseph and the... was finally produced at a professional level in 1972 by Frank Dunlop and it's success transferred it to bigger theatres and wider audiences. It was finally produced on Broadway on January 27, 1982 at the Royale Theatre where it remained for 747 performances.
It has also been made into a video, starring Donny Osmond in 1999.
