Osmond's Joseph Debuts on Film
(Happiness Is Just A Show Called 'Joe')
New Orleans LA Times-Picayune pgE1 5Apr00 A2
By David Cuthbert Staff writer

NEW ORLEANS -- "Joe" makes his debut on the silver screen in Utah and Idaho!

A new movie starring Donny Osmond, Joan Collins and Richard Attenborough is a film version of the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat". It has the look of a non-stop kaleidoscope with dazzling colors and music.

Osmond, as Joseph, wears a designer "diaper and Cleopatra style eyeliner" while Joan Collins as Mrs. Potiphar wears a Marilyn Monroe look of skin-and-beads dress. Richard Attenborough plays the part of Jacob, the father of Joseph.

There is a trick used where all the characters take bows and the audience storms the stage in colorful costumes, joining the show in progress.

The narrator, Maria Friedman works hard to tie the whole package together, but what puts this performance over is the frisky staging and eclectic design.
