The Biblical story of Joseph is set to music in Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber's production. When Jacob's (Richard Attenborough) favorite son Joseph (Donny Osmond) is sold into slavery by his envious siblings, Joseph ends up in jail but soon starts to interpret the Pharaoh's (Robert Torti) dreams. Catapulted by his newfound fame, Joseph becomes an Egyptian power player. Lloyd Webber's music offers something for everyone, from calypso to Elvis.

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this Old Testament tale is suitable for grade-school kids. Some things to note: Joseph's solo ballad laments persecution of the Hebrews. Joseph's father is obviously a polygamist. Fully-clothed dancers simulate orgies with mildly suggestive choreography. A sheep is dismembered (though it's clearly a mannequin-like fake). Religious viewers may have qualms about the treatment of the Scripture-based material (God is barely mentioned here). The themes of sibling rivalry, jealousy, and ultimate forgiveness, however, are universal.
