Well, the story line is easy enough to follow. It's the tale of Joseph from the Old Testament: how his 11 jealous brothers sold him into slavery, unintentionally starting him on his way to a place of power at the court of the Egyptian pharaoh. And the music is surprisingly spritely, considering that Andrew Lloyd Webber wrote it. (He was young and relatively hot-airless at the time.) What's more, this touring version is sweet and playful, bright, energetic, and very efficient at 110 minutes, with video projections that—unlike those in so many other road shows—actually help tell the story. So what if, under director-choreographer Andy Blankenbuehler, it's been reimagined in a way that sacrifices sense for city-to-city mobility? The only real problems are Ace Young's amiably bland Joseph and the idea that audiences enjoy getting powerful lights flashed in their eyes. —Tony Adler
