The biblical story of Joseph and his coat of many

Joseph, the favorite son of Jacob,is blessed with

A Play About Irving Berlin, Harold Arlen, & Jimmy Van Heusen
It's 1956 and three of America's great songwriters; Irving Berlin, Harold Arlen and Jimmy Van Heusen; are at a crossroads in their lives, seeing that their careers could be over. At the time, rock 'n' roll had become the king of tunes, and the King himself, Elvis, was an overnight sensation. In the play, the three old friends; Berlin, Arlen and Van Heusen; get together to hash out the possible end of their musical usefulness.

Music and Lyrics by: Cyndi Lauper
This huge-hearted hit tells the story of two people
with nothing in common—or so they think!
Charlie is a factory owner struggling to save his family business.
Lola is a fabulous entertainer with a wildly exciting idea.
With a little compassion and a lot of understanding,
this unexpected pair learns to embrace their differences
and creates a line of sturdy stilettos, unlike the world has ever seen!
