UPDATE 4/18: After much consternation on my Facebook page, all 12 “Joseph” brothers in the Good Company Players have been identified in my trivia contest. For the record, here is the caption information from the Bee archive:
Joseph (Seth Scott, center) is scorned by his borthers in ‘Joseph & the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat." Brothers, clockwise from lower left: Mark Tolladay, Devon Myers, Philip Wieck, Steve Pepper, Peter Allwine, John Masier, Randy Wood, Corey Strauss, Steve Souza, Scott Hancock and Alex Lawrence.’
The hard one to get was Randy Wood. Several people (and I’m talking about you, Terry Lewis) could remember his first name but not his last. As far as I can tell, Dewi L. Faulkner was the one to break the logjam.
ORIGINAL POST 4/14: After my review of the national tour of “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat,” one reader writes to say he likes Grumpy Donald. It’s because I wrote this:
“(As for the coat of the title: It’s the ugliest one I’ve seen yet in a “Joseph” production; it looks as if it were put together by a bunch of ladies in a quilting bee who took mind-enhancing drugs and then raided Pinterest for inspiration.)”
Yes, I did dial up the snark-meter on that one. Comes from writing in the morning before my regular wakeup time.
To finish out our “Joseph” coverage, I offer something completely different: an exercise just for the heck of it. I present this vintage photo from our archives from the 2002 Good Company Players production of “Joseph,” above. How many of Joseph’s brothers can you identify?
