Geary Danihy: A Pulsating "Joseph"
If you have any old batteries sitting around the house that could use some recharging, bring them along with you to Summer Theatre of New Canaan's production of "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat." Put them down in front of you and let them soak up the energy, then bring them home and run them for six months.
"Director Melody Meitrott Libonati and choreographer Doug Shankman have crafted a high-energy retelling of the biblical story of Joseph, favorite son of Jacob, that simply pulsates beneath the sheltering tent at Waveny Park. It's a smile-generating production with an absolutely fabulous ensemble of young dancers and singers, plus a choir of local children, that visually and vocally satisfies on just about every level....
You just can't help your foot from tapping and your hands from clapping... the ensemble, including the children's choir, is omnipresent and makes the tent flutter, bulge and flap. They hold nothing back ... from the opening notes of the overture you're riveted."
