Producers Suzanne Gilad & Larry Rogowsky are thrilled to announce that due to popular demand, David Rossmer and Steve Rosen’s hit musical comedy THE OTHER JOSH COHEN will extend its Off-Broadway run at the Westside Theatre. Tickets are now on sale through April 28, 2019, nine weeks beyond the limited engagement’s original end date of February 24. Directed by Tony Award nominee Hunter Foster, the musical – which opened to widespread critical acclaim on November 12, 2018 – features Book, Music and Lyrics by Drama Desk nominees David Rossmer and Steve Rosen, who star in the title roles alongside Drama Desk nominee Kate Wetherhead (Legally Blonde), Hannah Elless (Bright Star), Elizabeth Nestlerode (Once Tour), Luke Darnell (Million Dollar Quartet Vegas), Louis Tucci (Buddy) and Zach Spound (Cruel Intentions: The Musical).

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. Leading a cast of extraordinary actor-musicians who play as many parts as they do instruments, David Rossmer and Steve Rosen both star as the hapless-yet-warmhearted title character – one eventful year apart – in a 90-minute life-changing laughfest for the whole family that will leave you feeling better about the world. Nominated for six Drama Desk Awards and the Lortel Award for Outstanding Musical upon its world premiere, this hilarious, heartfelt and hummable musical described by Backstage Magazine as “Seinfeld-meets-Rodgers & Hart” makes a triumphant return in an all-new production, hailed by Jesse Green of The New York Times as “a spontaneously charming musical that is just right for right now.”

A special studio recording of the musical was released by Yellow Sound Label ahead of its Off-Broadway opening at the Westside Theatre.

Steve Rosen and David Rossmer met as teenagers at French Woods summer camp in the Catskill Mountains. In addition to writing and performing THE OTHER JOSH COHEN, they co-created the hit comedy variety show Don’t Quit Your Night Job, which began at Joe’s Pub before moving to a successful run Off-Broadway. For Don’t Quit, Rossmer and Rosen wrote special material for the likes of Sting, Sutton Foster, James Corden, Julianna Margulies, Andrea Martin and David Hyde Pierce. Their work has been performed at Joe’s Pub, Ars Nova and at the American Airlines Theatre on Broadway (to benefit The Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation).
