My dad's best friend when I was growing up (and to this day) was Manny Azenberg, one of the great Broadway empresarios... he invited us to all of his Broadway openings, so I had the incredible opportunities to see play after play," Josh said of his upbringing.

"I definitely knew from an early age that [theatre] is what I wanted to do. I think I experienced it as 'This is what I am,' in elementary school and camp plays. It was just always what I wanted to do."
