According to, the Musical takes place in the Biblical land of Canaan, Joseph is the favorite son of Jacob. As such, he encounters the jealousy of his brothers who object to his dreams in which he is the hero and the brothers have to pay homage to him. They arrange to have him killed and to prove his death, show their father the multicolored coat smeared with blood. In fact, Joseph has been sold into slavery to the household of Potiphar who has him thrown in jail as he is disgusted by the attraction between his wife and Joseph. Joseph’s ability to interpret dreams is relayed to Pharaoh who has started to have a series of dreams. Joseph foresees seven years of full harvests and this to be followed by seven years of famine. Joseph is put in charge of preparing for the years of famine and, just as prophesied, the dreams came true.
