Go, go, go Joseph

I went to Justin's play tonight (Joseph and the Amazing Techinicolor Dreamcoat, he plays Simeon). I went expecting to laugh, to see Justin sing and dance, and to waste a few hours. I have never seen the play, but I knew it was pretty silly. I did not expect to be touched.

There is a scene when Joseph is in the prison cell... all of the kids and other prisoners start singing, "go, go, go, go," really softly... Then the narrators sing,
"Go, go, go Joseph, you know what they say
Hang on now Joseph, you'll make it some day
Don't give up Joseph, fight till you drop
We've read the book and you come out on top"
And suddenly, I felt encouraged... lifted up... strengthened... I can do this! I know who wins in the end, and its ME!

(As a side note, Justin did a great job! I had a blast watching him. He is getting really good, and it is so fun to see him progressing in something he loves as much as singing and acting.)


  1. Fantastic!- Knowing you will do it is a HUGE step...

  2. I do know the ending. You will win in the end.
