ASU Gammage has announced that the new 2014 national tour of "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat," directed and choreographed by Tony Award-winner Andy Blankenbuehler, will play Jan. 13-18 in Tempe, Arizona.

Broadway and television star Diana DeGarmo (Narrator) and Broadway star Ace Young (Joseph) head up the cast, which also features Paul Castree as Simeon, William Thomas Evans as Jacob/Potiphar, Brian Golub as Reuben, Max Kumangai as Judah and Ryan Williams as Pharaoh.

Husband-and-wife team Young and DeGarmo first met when they shared the Broadway stage in the 2009 revival of "Hair."

“I am so excited to be starring as ‘Joseph’ alongside Diana,” Young said

“It’s great to be back on stage! I too am so excited to star alongside Ace in the very role I once looked up to years ago as a child in the choir,” DeGarmo added.

One of the most enduring shows of all time, "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat," is a family musical about the trials and triumphs of Joseph, Israel’s favorite son. The first collaboration of composer Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyricist Tim Rice, 'Joseph' blends pop, country and rock to retell the biblical story of Joseph, his eleven brothers and the coat of many colors.

Performances are:

• 7:30 p.m., Jan. 13-16
• 2 and 7:30 p.m., Jan. 17
• 1 and 6:30 p.m., Jan. 18
