Setting the scene
Ethan plays the one of the main characters, Joseph. He set the scene for what you can expect to see on stage.
“Expect the classic Joseph story everyone knows and loves. I know anyone who ever comes back to Joseph has favorite iconic moments in the show that we do incorporate, but we are also taking our own artistic reign over it too, so it will be a lot of things people know and love while also introducing them to things hopefully they will love and seek out in the future.”Ethan Hardy Benson, Joseph, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat
When I asked Ethan about what is it like to play such an iconic character, he mentioned having to have a balance of fun and seriousness in his character.
“It’s an interesting connection and collaboration of reading a story book you might be reading to children and also this timeless biblical story that carries so much weight and finding the connection between those roles. Portraying Joseph’s character is something that is very illustrated and over the top, but also rooted in honesty and holds weight, like getting flung into a well by your brothers or being held captive in jail.”Ethan Hardy Benson, Joseph, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat

The set + choreography is spectacular
The set, choreography and costumes will make you feel like you are a part of the story. Color pops from every angle and the sand and stars sparkle under the lights.
“The set is beautiful. The stage is like sand in Egypt and is pretty spectacular. There are mountains everywhere, we have stars and it’s very storybook and animated plus completely neon. The lights are incredible. My favorite part of Joseph the musical itself is all of the production numbers and ensemble numbers. I really do think they make the show so special because everyone in the audience is so cheerful because the people dancing are so cheery eyed that you can’t help but dance along.”Ethan Hardy Benson, Joseph, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat
Ethan is loving Birmingham, so be sure to say hello if you see him out exploring The Magic City.
“I just got off of a national tour going through 50 cities in a year and it’s really nice being in one place for more than two weeks. I really love Railroad Park and I went hiking at Ruffner Mountain. I grew up three hours west in Memphis so I have always know about Birmingham, so I am grateful to be here and looking forward to exploring more things.”Ethan Hardy Benson, Joseph, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat
