Having never seen Andrew Lloyd Webber's Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, I was not fully prepared for the experience at Tacoma Musical Playhouse. Webber's second musical started as a 15-minute cantata and, over time, expanded to the current hour and a half production (including intermission). Set in a museum,

Shop till you starve

The deals available to consumers this holiday season may, if expert predictions prove right, stagger the mind.
