Amas Musical Theatre, in association with Scandobean Productions, LLC, presents a new musical with book, music and lyrics by David Rossmer and Steve Rosen entitled The Other Josh Cohen. It is directed by Tony Award-winning Ted Sperling, with choreography by Andrew Palermo and musical direction by Vadim Feichtner. The Other Josh Cohen opened last night, October 20, 2012. BroadwayWorld was there and brings you opening night coverage below!
 
Aside from the cast and creative team, guests Leslie Kritzer, Perez Hilton, David Henry Hwang, Rick Elice, Roger Rees and more made appearances.

The Other Josh Cohen tells the true story of "a good guy trying to break a streak of incredibly bad luck. He’s single, broke and just a few days before Valentine’s Day, comes home to find his apartment has been completely robbed. Well, almost; the thief had the decency to leave behind a Neil DiamondCD. Six days later a mysterious letter arrives in his mailbox that changes his life forever. Will his Jewish guilt let him enjoy his good fortune? Will he ever be able to stop kicking himself if he doesn’t? And will there ever be a time when nice guys finish first?"

Rossmer and Rosen both play Josh Cohen—one in the present day, the other Josh, one year earlier. The two frequently interact (and sing) together, creating a funny absurdity of one guy relating with himself. The score is in the style of a long-lost Neil Diamond album.

The cast includes: Steve Rosen (CQ/CX, Spamalot, The Farnsworth Invention, Don’t Quit Your Night Job ) as “Josh Cohen”, David Rossmer (Peter and the Starcatcher, Fiddler on the Roof, Titanic, Don’t Quit Your Night Job) as “Narrator Josh”, Kate Wetherhead (“Submissions Only,” Legally Blonde, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee) as “A Lot of People”, Vadim Feichtner (The Burnt Part Boys, Ordinary Days, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee) as “A Bunch of People”, Hannah Elless (Godspell, Baby Case) as “A Bunch of Other People”, and Ken Triwush (Titanic, Buddy) as “The Rest of the People.”

The show runs through November 11 only, and plays at the scenic SoHo Playhouse (15 Vandam Street). Tickets are $65 ($35 during previews) and can be purchased by visiting www.theotherjoshcohen.com or www.sohoplayhouse.com.
