Produced by Michael Croiter, the album will be released for digital download on iTunes this Friday, October 19, and will be available on Amazon and in stores nationwide on October 22.

On the album, Rossmer and Rosen sing the title roles alongside guest stars Rivera, O'Hara, Simpson, and the following previously announced performers: Hank Azaria, two-time Tony winner Sutton Foster, Tony winner James Monroe Iglehart, Tony nominee Brian d'Arcy James, Tony nominee Richard Kind, Tony nominee Jenn Colella, Caissie Levy, James Roday, Tony winner Lindsay Mendez, Tony nominee Celia Keenan-Bolger, Tony nominee John Ellison Conlee, Sara Chase, Sarah Bishop, E.

With book, music, and lyrics by Rossmer and Rosen, The Other Josh Cohen tells the story of Josh Cohen, single and broke, whose apartment has been robbed of everything but a Neil Diamond CD. But his luck takes a turn when a mysterious envelope arrives that changes his life. Directed by Hunter Foster, previews will begin October 26, with opening night set for November 12. The limited run is scheduled to conclude on February 24.
