In the 1999 run of the show, Gary took part in the same musical by playing the titular role of Joseph. He will be joining Sam Concepcion in the 2022 run, with the latter playing the role of Joseph which he also took on in the 2020 run of the musical. The cast also includes Audie Gemora as Jacob (alternating with Gary), Kayla Rivera as Asenath, Carlo Orosa as the Pharaoh, and Bituin Escalante as Joseph’s mother, Rachel.


Joseph the Dreamer highlights the relationship between the father and the son. The musical is based on the story of one of the best known characters in the Bible, Joseph.

This will be directed by Paolo Valenciano, Gary’s son, who also directed the 2020 run of the musical. He will be joined by Nelsito Gomez as Associate Director, Myke Salomon as the Musical Director, MJ Arda of the A-Team as the Choreographer of the musical, and Mio Infante will be heading the Production Design.

In 2020, Joseph the Dreamer completed its successful run a week before the lockdown was imposed by the government due to the pandemic. The musical will start in July 2022 at the Maybank Performing Art Theater in Bonifacio Global City. Tickets are available at Ticketworld.
