is Catalyst for Conflict and Redemption at MCCC's Kelsey Theatre July
Back at home, Joseph's brothers are hungry and remorseful. Learning that Egypt still has food, they decide to travel there, not realizing that the man in charge is, in fact, their long-lost brother. Recognizing them, Joseph gives them food and sends them on their way, but not before planting a golden cup in the sack of his youngest brother, Benjamin. When Benjamin is accused of stealing the cup, the brothers implore Joseph to imprison them instead of Benjamin. Seeing their selflessness, Joseph reveals himself. The show ends with a happy family reunion. Originating in London, "Joseph" was first performed in America in 1970, and proved so popular that it moved to Broadway in 1972. With a score that uses a variety of musical styles, the show has enjoyed numerous professional and amateur revivals. This recent version from the United Kingdom has added to and enhanced the original score.
