  1. I’m so excited for Clay I’ve been commenting and retweeting everything. What a fun summer this will be. Clay is going to knock’em dead! 🙂

  2. I am very excited that Clay is doing this. I love this show! It has many different types of music in it and Clay's voice will shine. I would love to attend it, but can't at the time it is being performed. I know those that do see it will be in for an awesome experience! I do have the dvd with Donny Osmond and have watched it many times. Great show.

  3. I've never seen this play so it will all be new to me. Heard Donny Osmond had this role and he was very good. Can't wait to get clack as I won't be able to attend, 🙁

  4. im verry excited for clay that clay is doing this i saw andy gibb do this wonderfull show he had this role also

  5. I love that Broadway World reported on this show and Drowsy Chaperone! I am hoping against hope that this run in Maine is the beginning of "Joseph" heading to Broadway via Broadway in Boston. A couple trial runs in this area then to Broadway or maybe a tour- that would be FUN!

  6. Yeah for the exciting career news about Clay playing Joseph. I'm not familiar with this show so I will need to study up on it. I do know 2 of the songs though and can't wait to here Clay singing them.

  7. That explains why he's on East Coast. He's probably rehearsing for Joseph. Wondering what he did with the little dude, if he took 'em with him or did he have to stay behind in NC with Granny Faye or Momma Jaymes?!!! Wish he weren't performing so far away!!!! Clay-Come back to Ohio!!! We miss you in Toledo!!!!!!!

  8. OMG. The second sentence out of my mouth when I heard Clay's Audition was Ohhhh, I want to hear him sing "Close every door to me". Now he is going to sing it and I cannot go. I am dying inside. I wonder if I could return to my health of say…50 years ago. Well actually even 40years would do!
    .

  9. I was able to purchase tickets for Joseph…fairly easily. Getting a place to stay was much more difficult. After several days of trying both on line and by phone, I got the last room at the Towne Lyne Motel. Looking forward to seeing Clay perform on Aug 7.
