This is a Blog post about a song, which includes reference to a door. "Close Every Door" is a song from the musical Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat by Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber. The musical is based on the biblical story from the Book of Genesis and was first shown as a stage production in the early 70's. The musical grew in popularity when Jason Donovan took the lead role in 1991. In 2007 the TV programme Any Dream Will Do helped to renew the popularity of the musical culminating in the appointment of Lee Mead as the lead role in Joseph. This resulted in a very successful London show, which ran for a further two years.
Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat musical continues to draw in the crowds and I was lucky enough to see the show last year in Leeds, which I really enjoyed. I think it is a great family show, which is suitable for all ages and I would love to go and see it again. I thought the songs were great, including Close Every Door and I bought the CD after the performance.
Close Every Door is sung towards the end of the first act in the show, when Joseph has been imprisoned. Philip Schofield released the song in 1992 when he starred in the production and he went on to sing it at the London Palladium Variety Performance.
In December last year Andrew Lloyd Webber revealed that the popular musical would be made into a film shortly. This follows the success of Les Miserables last year and I am sure it will be equally successful.
