The Other Josh Cohen is a hilarious original musical comedy. Good guy Josh Cohen is caught in a lifelong battle with bad luck. He's single, broke, and woefully underemployed when his apartment is robbed. But then a mysterious letter arrives that could change his life forever. "ImagineSeinfeld meets Rodgers and Hart directed by Woody Allen," remarked Backstage. This delectable new musical makes its way from Off Broadway to the Paper Mill stage and beyond. The New York Times raves, "Superb and sweetly funny, brisk and satisfying, spandex-tight writing and crackling comic delivery. It's an endearing and consistently funny crowd pleaser.
