The La Mirada Theater for the Performing Arts is closing out its 2022-2023 season with “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.”
If, like me, the only version of the musical you’ve seen is the 1999 straight-to-video one with Donny Osmond and you thought it was a bit too cheesy and campy for your taste, cringe not!

I’m not going to wait until the end, this time, to tell you that it’s a must-see show. (more)
