The Other Josh Cohen, the new musical comedy written by and starring Don't Quit Your Night Job co-creators David Rossmer and Steve Rosen, celebrated its opening night a the Soho Playhouse on Saturday, September 20. Ted Sperling directs the production, which continues through November 11.
Rossmer and Rosen both star as Josh Cohen (one in the present, one a year earlier), a good guy going through a streak of bad luck who one day discovers a letter that could change his life. But only if his Jewish guilt doesn't get in the way.
The pair are joined on stage by Kate Wetherhead as "A Lot of People," musical director Vadim Feichtner as "A Bunch of People," Hannah Elless as "A Bunch of Other People," and Ken Triwush as "The Rest of the People." Musical staging is provided by Andrew Palermo, and the musical is presented by Amas Musical Theatre in association with Scandobean Productions, LLC.
Guests at the after party -- many of whom got to try on the production's signature flannel shirt -- included Warren Adams, Christine Andreas, John Bolton, Lindsay Nicole Chambers, Anthony Crivello, Rick Elice, Penny Fuller, David Henry Hwang, Jordan Gelber, Perez Hilton, Richard Kind, Leslie Kritzer, Dan Lipton, Benj Pasek, Justin Paul, Eve Plumb, Roger Rees, Sarah Saltzberg, and Martin Silvestri.
