The Other Josh Cohen to End Its Off-Broadway Run
A national tour of the David Rossmer-Steve Rosen musical will launch in 2020.
David Rossmer and Steve Rosen's musical comedy The Other Josh Cohen will end its off-Broadway run at the Westside Theatre on April 7. The musical began performances on October 26 and extended past its initial closing date of February 24. A national tour will launch in 2020, with cities and dates to be announced at a later date.
The Other Josh Cohen is described as follows: "From the moment audiences enter the Westside Theatre, they are immersed in the quirky world of Josh Cohen's New York City apartment… as it is getting robbed. Thus begins the hilarious rock-and-roll romantic comedy about good-guy-Josh, caught in a lifelong battle with bad luck. Broke and alone, all hope seems lost — until a mysterious letter arrives that changes his life forever."
Directed by Tony nominee Hunter Foster, The Other Josh Cohen features a book, music, and lyrics by Rossmer and Rosen, who star in the title role. They are joined by Jane Bruce (Jagged Little Pill), Cathryn Wake (Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812), Elizabeth Nestlerode (Once tour), Luke Darnell (Million Dollar Quartet Vegas), Louis Tucci (Buddy), Zach Spound (Cruel Intentions: The Musical), and Megan Loomis (The Dead, 1904).
