The Other Josh Cohen - 2012 - Off-Broadway

The Other Josh Cohen is more than an original new musical comedy. It's the true story of a good guy trying to break a streak of incredibly bad luck. He's single, broke and just a few days before Valentine's Day, his apartment is robbed of everything but one Neil Diamond CD. Six days later a mysterious letter arrives in his mailbox that changes his life forever.



Will his Jewish guilt let him enjoy his good fortune?



Will he ever be able to stop kicking himself if he doesn't?



And will there ever be a time when nice guys finish first?



Yep.
