The show on Sunday was amazing. The entire cast was above and beyond excellent! I was so lucky to be in the audience to see the finale of this wonderful run of Joseph and The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.
There were so many outstanding moments in Sunday’s show. It is still a fog for me so I can’t remember them all. However these are a few standout for me:
1. I have always enjoyed watching Kaela and Clay as the interact together on the stage. But on Sunday, the emotions seemed right out there! Towards the end, it seemed that Kaela was really having a difficult time and could not hold in the tears. She grabbed both of Clays hands tightly while they sang together, still sounding beautiful as they sang together.
2. Watching the brothers get a standing ovation was amazing. I loved watching their faces…they were excited, astonished, and in awe of what was happening.
3. I don’t usually get so emotional that I cry during a performance, but I did on Sunday. Clay’s performance of Close Every Door was outstanding. The singing was beautiful as he combined the music and the passion to make the song the highlight of the show! The standing ovation that he received was well-deserved. The reunion scene between Joseph and Jacob was also emotional and touching. Both men gave a hug that was just a bit longer and tighter than at other times.
4. The standing ovation for Clay during the curtain call was long and loud. There were lots of smiles on both the stage and in the audience.
I know there are many other highlights, but I will share them later when I get home.
Soon after the show was over, Clay tweeted the following:
I always think I know you folks well… and then you always find a way to take it to another level and amaze me again! I love you all.

Clay…we love you too!
This has been such a magical month. I am so glad that I got to tag on to the last bit of the fun!
