Linzi Hateley is to play the Narrator at special performances, in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat at the London Palladium.
Linzi Hateley – who starred in the original London Palladium production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat – will make a sensational return to the musical in this summer’s strictly limited season. Tickets are now on sale.
Linzi – who was nominated for an Olivier Award for her performance as the Narrator, and starred alongside Jason Donovan in the title role – will perform as in the role at special performances, in the new production of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s legendary musical.
Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat will begin performances on Thursday 1 July with Linzi Hateley’s first performance on Saturday 17th July after the proposed “Step Four” in the Government’s roadmap to easing restrictions, and therefore is planning to accommodate full-capacity audiences in accordance with the intended lifting of all limits on social contact.
Michael Harrison said: “This dream just keeps getting better. It was special enough to announce Alexandra Burke recently as the Narrator, but to now have the added bonus of Linzi playing the role at special performances – and to reunite her with Jason Donovan again at the London Palladium – turns Joseph into a dream ticket. The combination of nostalgia for the original Palladium production, coupled with the excitement of our new critically acclaimed version, means we all have a summer to look forward to.”
Linzi Hateley is scheduled to perform Sat 17th July Matinee and Evening, Wednesday 18th August Matinee, Sunday 22nd August 5pm, Wednesday 25th August 2.30pm, Saturday 28th August Matinee and Evening, Sunday 29th August Matinee and Evening, Wednesday 1st September Matinee, Saturday 4th September Matinee.
