Roslyn Cohn Biography

Roz's Mom went into labor with her at San Francisco's Curran Theatre while watching "The Sound of Music" and she's been kicking and screaming ever since. She was nominated for a Broadway World Award 2014 as Best Female Cabaret Artist for her work in "diffiCult to leave" - her show about 23 years in the Cult of Scientology. The show was written by Roz, Jake Anthony and Joshua Finkel. The show has significance as the Church is known for engaging in hostile acts to silence critics/apostates and Roz was the first (ex)member to speak out in this way. She worked on Broadway with Tony Randall's National Actors Theatre, Off-Broadway in "I Never Saw Another Butterfly" plus other numerous shows regionally. She's appeared in several films, some TV and commercials. Roz wrote a Short about a neurological disease she has, titled "Essential Tremors" and is traveling the Festival Circuit winning numerous Best Comedy/Dramedy Awards and 3 Awards as Best Actress as of August 6, 2016. Says Roz, "I love the stage as there is no place to hide and we're all breathing the same molecules and engaging in the story - nothing better than that! Thanks for checking me out." www.RoslynCohn.com

THE SOUND OF MURDER by William Fairchild premiered in London in 1959, making the plot somewhat predictable now, given the abundance of murder mysteries written and being produced on local stages. But this one set play is exactly the kind of British murder mystery that Theatre 40 audiences enjoy, especially with the company's designers onboard who always create a visually stunning production. Skillfully directed by Adrian Cohen to keep the action interesting and a lot more than just a lot of talking heads with British accents, the cast of THE SOUND OF MURDER includes Roslyn Cohn, Gabriel Olivas, David Hunt Stafford, Peter Trencher, David Westbay and Kate Whitney. And why that title? There's some audio equipment involved that turns out to be a pivotal prop in the investigation!

Written in much the same style as The Laramie Project by Moises Kaufman where a small group of actors portray several characters sharing their experience of living through a tragic local event and its aftermath on the town, Eric Ulloa's 26 PEBBLES does not just recount what happened on December 14, 2012, but is more about how the people of the Newtown community reached out to their neighbors to bond, cope and heal from that devastating tragedy in order to move forward with their lives to a more hopeful future.

MR. PIM PASSES BY debuted on the stage in 1919, written by A.A. Milne (1882-1956) Although he will be known forever for his children's literature as the creator of Winnie-the-Pooh, Milne also wrote numerous plays and screenplays, books of poetry, and seven novels. This comedy for grown-ups tells a tale of mistaken identity and the lives it affects after a mysterious stranger pops up at a Woodbury, Connecticut home. It's never explained why Mr. Pim is in the neighborhood, although it's very apparent he does not live in the area nor is he visiting anyone else who does. And as the story builds, you might decide he is a character much like Clarence the Angel in "It's a Wonderful Life," there to simply make sure that love rules the day.

BWW Review: GROUP rep Knocks LOST IN YONKERS Out of the Park Photo BWW Review: GROUP rep Knocks LOST IN YONKERS Out of the Park
by Don Grigware - Sep 11, 2017

Neil Simon's Pulitzer Prize-winning dramedy Lost in Yonkers followed his autobiographical trio Brighton Beach Memoirs, Biloxi Blues and Broadway Bound. Critics started to take him seriously as a playwright with these plays for he was writing about his own family's life experiences. Lost in Yonkers is set in 1942 in Yonkers, New York where Grandma Kurnitz (Loraine Shields) and her daughter Bella (Roslyn Cohn) run the family confectionery store and live in a modest apartment upstairs. Now in a stunning production at the GROUP rep, Larry Eisenberg directs a perfectly cast ensemble who make the play shine brightly through October 22. Humor is Simon's best suit. This is drama, but... there is plenty of comedy emanating
