Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat musically recounts the familiar story of Joseph, favored among the twelve sons of Jacob. Jacob presents Joseph with a beautiful multi-colored coat, making the other eleven sons extremely jealous and vengeful. After first plotting to kill Joseph, the brothers instead decide to sell him into slavery in Egypt. Using Joseph's tattered coat as evidence, the brothers convince Jacob that Joseph is dead. Joseph is enslaved by Egyptian millionaire Potiphar, and earns his trust as he runs the household. However, Joseph is soon warding off the affectionate advances of Potiphar's wife. The millionaire, misinterpreting the situation, has Joseph thrown into prison, where Joseph awes his cellmates - a baker and a butler - by deciphering their dreams. When word reaches the Pharaoh of Joseph's dream interpreting powers, Joseph's luck begins to change.
