Allow one Barton brother to brag on another, since it’s about the only thing I can do before Jack makes his move to Boston in September. After years of near constant performance in Northern Colorado’s theater scene, Jack is wrapping up his tenure in the state as the lead in Boulder Dinner Theater’s Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. BDT is bringing back the show that opened the theater in honor of its 40th anniversary. It’s getting some serious love in the local press, and I couldn’t help but pass it along.
“The production is stylish, visually brilliant, inventive and full of witty touches big and small, and places dancing front and center. [Director, Matthew] Peters has assembled some of the strongest dancers I’ve seen in musical theater around here.-Juliet Wittman Westword
“Jack Barton is in great form as Joseph...a handsome young man with a remarkable voice, and with an awe-shucks appeal. He and his brothers are terrific this spring in the Boulder Dinner Theatre Stage production of “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.””Tom JonesTom's Colorado Theater Reviews
“Jack Barton as Joseph, and Tracy Warren as the Narrator have the charisma and talent to anchor the show. Barton is likable and easy to cheer for, and more than covers the singing and dancing needed for the role.”Craig WilliamsonNorth Denver Tribune
“Jack Barton leads the cast terrifically as Joseph...‘Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat’ is a big dance party knock out. Don’t miss it!””Greg MoodyCBS4
