The former American Idol finalist, 34, could be mistaken for a walking rainbow in a photo released by the Ogunquit Playhouse, a local theater in Maine. The vibrant shot promotes Aiken's lead role in Andrew Lloyd Webber's Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat musical.
With wavy hair past his shoulders, a wide-eyed Aiken flashes a grin in the image.
"I like this role because it doesn't make me dance," he told the Portland Press Herald last month. "Rehearsals are going quite well. [Other cast members are] learning their difficult dance moves that I don't have to do."
