Paper Mill Playhouse continues its 75th season this month with a new musical "The Other Josh Cohen."
Good guy Josh Cohen is caught in a lifelong battle with bad luck—he's single, broke, and woefully underemployed when his apartment is robbed. Then a mysterious letter arrives that could change his life forever.
"Imagine Seinfeld meets Rodgers and Hart directed by Woody Allen," remarked Backstage.
The Other Josh Cohen features a book, music and lyrics by David Rossmer and Steve Rosen.
Ted Sperling will direct with musical staging by Andrew Palermo. Vadim Feichtner serves as music director. The Other Josh Cohen features Steve Rosen, David Rossmer, Hannah Elless, Vadim Feichtner, Cathryn Salamone, Ken Triwush and Kate Wetherhead.
The Other Josh Cohen will play the Millburn theater from Feb. 19 through March 16, and generously supported by individuals of Paper Mill Playhouse's Raise the Curtain campaign celebrating Paper Mill Playhouse's 75th Anniversary.
The Other Josh Cohen will be performed eight times a week, Wednesday through Sunday.
