There are a lot of iconic shows returning to the London this summer, perhaps none more so than Andrew Lloyd Webber’s biblical classic: Joseph and the Technicolor Dreamcoat. Following a wildly popular sold-out season in 2019, the new smash-hit production, starring Jason Donovan and Alexandra Burke, returns to the Palladium for a strictly limited season this summer.
After providing the rig for the 2019 run, PRG are delighted to be working alongside Michael Harrison Entertainment as well as Lighting Designer Ben Cracknell and his team to provide the lighting for the revival of this beloved family musical.
This vibrant production features many of PRG’s proprietary fixtures. This includes two PRG Best Boy HP follow spots used with manual control to track the actors while they move around on the stage. The production also uses a total of 71 PRG ICON Stage fixtures, providing numerous sustainable options for the design of the show, including reliable LED power, several GOBO loading options and low running costs, emissions and maintenance.
On his experience working with PRG once again on Joseph, Lighting Designer Ben Cracknell said, “It’s wonderful to be back at The London Palladium working alongside Pete Marshall, Jon Cadbury and the PRG team. The show is back and bigger than ever in no small part due to the quality of equipment and support we’ve received from PRG from prep right through to opening night.”
Special thanks to Producers Michael Harrison Entertainment, General Manager Jake Hine, Production Manager Simon Gooding, Production Electrician Chris Vaughan, Associate Lighting Designer & Programmer Sarah Brown, and Lighting Designer Ben Cracknell and his entire team.
Joseph and the Technicolor Dreamcoat at the London Palladium runs from 12 July this summer.
