Josh Cohen just can't get a break. He's single, broke and to top it all off, his apartment's been robbed of everything but a Neil Diamond CD. Soon, though, his luck takes a turn when a mysterious envelope arrives that changes his life forever. David Rossmer and Steve Rosen play the hapless-yet-warmhearted title character - one eventful year apart - in this hilarious romantic comedy about courageously owning the hand life deals you, and making your own luck. The Other Josh Cohen was declared a "Critic's Pick!" by The New York Times, praising it as "Superb and sweetly funny, with an infectious score! ...The Other Josh Cohen is that precious rarity: an original musical with a life-affirming message and songs worth remembering." Backstage Magazine raved, "Ingenious and Uproariously Witty! The Other Josh Cohen is a hilarious and smart new musical. Imagine Seinfeld-meets-Rodgers & Hart."

Originally developed at New York Musical Festival, THE OTHER Josh Cohen premiered in 2012 at the SoHo Playhouse, presented by Amas Musical Theatre, starring Rossmer and Rosen. In February 2014, the musical played a sold-out engagement at Paper Mill Playhouse as part of the theater's 75th Anniversary Season, which was followed by a limited engagement in Rochester, NY, in January 2018 at Geva Theatre Center. Produced by Suzanne Gilad and Larry Rogowsky, Geva serves as associate producer for this Off-Broadway production at The Westside Theatre.

David Rossmer and Steve Rosen 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).

The design team for THE OTHER Josh Cohen includes Scenic Designer Carolyn Mraz (Beardo, {my lingerie play}), Tony Award-winning Lighting Designer Jeff Croiter (Peter and the Starcatcher), Sound Designer Bart Fasbender (Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson), Costume Designer Nikki Moody (Rocky Horror Show, Guys and Dolls at Bucks County Playhouse) and Music Supervisor Dan Lipton (The Last Ship, Assoc.).
