In The Other Josh Cohen, Josh has hit rock bottom—he’s single and broke, and his apartment’s been robbed of everything but a Neil Diamond CD. His luck takes a turn when a mysterious envelope arrives.
The musical was originally developed at the New York Musical Festival, going on to premiere in 2012 at SoHo Playhouse in a production presented by Amas Musical Theatre starring Rossmer and Rosen. It has subsequently been seen regionally at the Paper Mill Playhouse and Geva Theatre.
Producers Suzanne Gilad and Larry Rogowsky recently announced that The Other Josh Cohen would return Off-Broadway with an engagement at the Westside Theatre. Directed by Hunter Foster, the production will again star Rossmer and Rosen in the title roles. Performances will begin October 26, with opening night scheduled for November 12.
