After returning home, it was so much fun to see so many new re-caps and pictures about Joseph and The AmazingTechnicolor Dreamcoat starring Clay Aiken. Everyone seems to still be so excited about the show and seeing Clay as he continued to present such amazing performances.
The following are a few comments that I found from different fans that were able to travel to Ogunquit to see Clay:
There are no words to describe the final show or any of them for that matter. You have seen it all written down in black and white so to speak, but no matter how many times we can say amazing, moving, awesome, joyful, exciting, sexy… and vocally outstanding… they can not do these performers justice as to the quality and the entertainment and love that they gave back to us all. Clay means the world to me, and every time I try to let him know that in some small way …he turns the tables and hands it right back to me. If I died tomorrow I would die knowing that I have just experienced the very best of Clay Aiken.
There was an interview before the play started where Bradford Kenney, the executive artistic director, said they needed a Joseph who would be a fresh appealing centerpiece of the production and they needed someone warm and genuine to pull it off. Well, they found all that in Clay and he brought it. I’m proud for him and so happy that he was surrounded by such a wonderful, talented group of performers who welcomed him as one of their own.
Clay’s rendition of “Close Every Door” is pretty much perfectly perfect in every way.
I cannot begin to tell you about the last show, it was beyond excellent. Everyone was giving their best. We gave Clay the most amazing standing ovation after “Close Every Door”. After those Canaan Days, we gave the brothers another amazing standing ovation and you could see and feel that they were all astonished and amazed. During GoGoGo Joseph, Clay did some very cute dancing movements. Towards the end, Keala was getting very emotional, and grabbing Clay´s hand. She mouthed the words “Thank you” to him and I lost it, I was weeping (to be fair, I was weeping since the beginning of the last show, I cannot tell you how many tissues I´ve used, I could not believe it was the last show!).
And to Clay, I have no words to describe all the good things you brought into my life, all the friends, all the fun, all the places I went that I would not had gone if it wasn´t for you. I love you forever and I cannot not wait for more to come!
Clay did a stunning job as Joseph. He has a voice like no other person on this planet – it fills the theatre. CED during the last show was unbelievable and other worldly – a well deserved standing ovation. He put his ALL into that song.
Every person on that stage was so talented and they all looked like they were having the time of their lives. Their joy was infectious and just rolled out over the audience and pulled us all into the story and the fun.
The following are some new stage door pictures!
And a big Thank you to SueReu who found this picture of Clay with many of the kids who were a part of the cast:
Many thanks for all your support through this exciting season of Joseph and The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.
I am hoping that we will have some up-dated news sooner than “SOON.”
