Why See The Other Josh Cohen?

MusicalsOff Broadway Shows

Drama Desk Nominee

Returning to Off-Broadway, The Other Josh Cohen begins with the titular character coming home to his apartment to discover he's been robbed. All the thieves have left behind is a Neil Diamond CD (possibly not by accident). Fortunately, the audience knows that Josh's luck will take a turn for the better, because his future self tells us so. Just how his fortunes change is revealed over the next 90 minutes of wisecracks, heartfelt drama and Neil Diamond-aping musical numbers.

The Other Josh Cohen premiered at the SoHo PLayhouse in 2012, wehere it was nominated for six Drama Desk Awards and the Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding Musical. The show's creators David Rossmer and Steve Rosen will reprise their onstage roles for this Westside Theatre production, while Tony nominee Hunter Foster (Little Shop of Horrors) will direct.

Cranston's wrenching performance stands on its own. In context, it's a terrifying reminder of how an all-too-human, anger-filled public figure, with access to a worldwide stage, can be mistaken for a god.

Expertly acted, pleasingly sung, and often visually splendid, it makes a good faith attempt to honor the show's history and intentions while also acknowledging the charged sexual politics of the moment
