Shot at London’s Pinewood Studios at the height of the theatrical run in 1999, it features Osmond as Joseph, a role he played in more than 2,000 shows across the U.S. and Canada.
Originally written in 1968 as a 25-minute ‘pop cantata,’ "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat" was the first staged collaboration between Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice.
