The Other Josh Cohen

Off Broadway
2M, Ensemble
Community & Pro Theatres


Enter 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. Two actors play 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, this hilarious, endearing and hummable musical was hailed by Jesse Green of The New York Times as “a spontaneously charming musical that is just right for right now.”

Casting & Production


THE OTHER JOSH COHEN is meant to be performed a million different ways. The script is written such that it can easily be done with a few people and a guitar, or 50 students and a pit orchestra. Because there are so many characters, weaving in and out of different locations, there are endless possibilities. Even Josh could be split up into more than two performers.
