Love London Love Culture’s Emma Clarendon caught up with Union J’s Jaymi Hensley to talk about taking on the title role in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.
Hi Jaymi, thanks so much for talking to me. How are you feeling about being part of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat?
To be honest I am still pinching myself that it is real. It really is a dream come true to step into such an iconic role, and I am really am having the time of my life.
What for you makes Joseph a great musical theatre role to play?
I think it is how joyous the show is. There is so much doom and gloom in the world at the moment that I think Joseph being full of such feel good songs is exactly what audiences need to see.
Have you a favourite moment in the show that you can’t wait to be a part of?
I do love the megamix at the end. It’s so fun and a defiant ‘pinch me’ moment when my coat pulls out into a huge rainbow that covers the whole stage.
What did you think of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat when you first saw it?
I actually don’t remember seeing it as I was so young, but the music has always been there. It is surprising how much these songs are engrained into our lives.
Why do you think it has been such a successful musical?
Great songs, great story, great fun.
How would you describe the show?
A feel-good time for all the family!
Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Coat continues to tour across the UK until 20 July 2019.
