Cathryn begins performances on Tuesday, February 5, taking over for Hannah Elless who departs the production on February 3. Megan Loomis (The Dead 1904) joins the cast as the female standby.

Jane Bruce was most recently seen in the world premiere of Jagged Little Pill at the American Repertory Theater. She appeared Off-Broadway in Missed Connections: The Craigslist Musical; regionally in The Ballad of Little Jo at Two River Theater (Sara, Original Cast Recording) and The Theory of Relativity at Godspeed (Mira); and on TV in "SVU" and "Jessica Jones."

Nominated for six Drama Desk Awards and the Lortel Award for Outstanding Musical upon its world premiere at SoHo Playhouse, THE OTHER Josh Cohen, produced by Suzanne Gilad and Larry Rogowsky, features Book, Music and Lyrics by David Rossmer and Steve Rosen. Tony Award nominee Hunter Foster directs the Off-Broadway production, in which the actors also double as an onstage band, under the musical supervision of Dan Lipton (The Last Ship, Assoc.). THE OTHER Josh Cohen is currently in performances Off-Broadway at The Westside Theatre (407 West 43rd Street) and recently announced an extension through April 28, 2019.

From the moment audiences enter The Westside Theatre, they are immersed in 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. Leading a cast of extraordinary actor-musicians who play as many parts as they do instruments, David Rossmer and Steve Rosen both star as the hapless-yet-warmhearted title character - one eventful year apart - in a 90-minute life-changing laugh-fest 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 upon its world premiere, this hilarious, heartfelt and hummable musical described by Backstage Magazine as "Seinfeld-meets-Rodgers & Hart" makes a triumphant return in an all-new production, hailed by Jesse Green of The New York Times as "a spontaneously charming musical that is just right for right now."

The show stars Drama Desk nominees and creators Steve Rosen (Spamalot, Guys and Dolls) and David Rossmer (Peter and the Starcatcher, Les Misérables) alongside Elizabeth Nestlerode (Once Regional), Luke Darnell (Million Dollar Quartet Vegas) and Louis Tucci (Buddy); Zach Spound (Cruel Intentions: The Musical) serves as the male swing.

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 V. Moody (Rocky Horror Show, Guys and Dolls at Bucks County Playhouse) and Co-orchestrator & Music Supervisor Dan Lipton (The Last Ship, Assoc.).
