Dressed for Success

Nice blazer, Joseph


Joseph is the youngest of twelve brothers, and he’s obviously daddy’s favorite, as Jacob has given his youngest son a singularly fabulous coat that marks him as special. So his jealous older brothers do what brothers did in Biblical times: Sell him into slavery and then tell dad that Joseph is dead. (And you thought your family was tough.) But Joseph is a hard worker, and he has a remarkable knack for interpreting other people’s dreams. This talent brings him to the attention of the Pharaoh, who makes Joseph the second-most powerful man in Egypt. The incredible rise of Joseph from slave to success is credited to his belief in dreams — and it’s a story told through song in Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s first big hit, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.
