The Other Josh Cohen opened off-Broadway on Monday, November 12, at the Westside Theatre. The production will play a limited, 17-week engagement through February 24, 2019.
Featured in the cast alongside show creators Steve Rosen and David Rossmer are Kate Wetherhead, Hannah Elless, Elizabeth Nestlerode, Luke Darnell, and Louis Tucci. Zachary Spound is the show's 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.
