The stage show was successful, but it was the film that turned it into the greatest cult musical of all time, I believe?

We're inviting some people. Who knows. One can only hope for the best. Nobody approached Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber when "Joseph" was originally performed, even in London after the very first mounting in Westminster.

It was "Jesus Christ Superstar" that led to "Joseph" finally opening in the West End, and even then it wasn't the "Joseph" that we're familiar with today. There was a whole new Act called "Jacob's Journey", a prequel to the story, which was later phased out and "Joseph" was, again, expanded.
