Pamela Tracy here.
I found it very interesting.
See, I've read the story in the Bible hundreds of times.
I've heard the story at church almost as many.
What did I love?
I loved watching Joseph's brothers dance in a way that reminded me of
Seven Brides for Seven Brothers.
I loved how it showed the brothers jealousy and the way they threw him down the well.
But, they got that wrong because Rueben didn't do what he was supposed to do. ARG
I loved Potiphar and the two servants who went to prison.
But, I'm irritated that they didn't show what Joseph REALLY did
when Potiphar's wife tried to seduce him.
In the Bible, she DID NOT succeed.
True Hollywood form, the musical changed that.
I loved Pharaoh and his costume and his love of gold.
I understand in Andrew Lloyd Webber's real production,
Pharaoh didn't suddenly become an Elvis impersonator.
I think I would have preferred that.
In my heart of hearts, I don't think the messages of the Bible should be toyed with.
Am I glad I went?
Yes, because I made sure that my friends heard me say, "That didn't happen. Here's what really did." And if the stranger next to me, in front of me, behind me, heard also.
I hope I made them question.
