The Other Josh Cohen Begins Off-Broadway Rehearsals
David Rossmer and Steve Rosen's new musical is directed by Hunter Foster.
Rehearsals have begun for The Other Josh Cohen, opening off-Broadway at the Westside Theatre this fall.
Joining Steve Rosen and David Rossmer, the show's stars and creators, are Kate Wetherhead, Hannah Elless, Elizabeth Nestlerode, Luke Darnell, and Louis Tucci. Zachary Spound will serve as a swing.
The musical is described as follows: "Josh Cohen just can't get a break. He's single, broke, and to top it all off, his apartment's been robbed of everything but a Neil Diamond CD. Soon, though, his luck takes a turn when a mysterious envelope arrives that changes his life forever. Steve Rosen and David Rossmer play the hapless-yet-warmhearted title character – one eventful year apart – in this hilarious romantic comedy about courageously owning the hand life deals you, and making your own luck."
Nominated for six Drama Desk Awards following its 2012 world premiere at the SoHo Playhouse, The Other Josh Cohen features a book, music, and lyrics by David Rossmer and Steve Rosen. Tony nominee Hunter Foster directs the production, in which the actors also double as an onstage band, under the musical supervision of Dan Lipton.
Performances begin October 26 ahead of a November 12 opening, and will run for a limited engagement of seventeen weeks through February 24, 2019.
