The Other Josh Cohen at the Paper Mill Playhouse

The Other Josh Cohen


Now showing at the Paper Mill Playhouse in NJ, is the incredibly funny “The Other Josh Cohen”. This play is about a single Jewish man who is down on his luck and broke, but this nice guy just wants to do the right thing when a mysterious check shows up at his home with $58,000 for him. Not knowing the sender, he tries to make sure that it’s really HIS money before he cashes the check. His friends and family try to help- which only makes it stranger. This musical (told in the past and present, with multiple actors playing the same person at the same time, often literally talking to themselves) will have you laughing from start to finish.

Josh didn’t have the best luck with girls, jobs, or even his writing. But nice guys can finish first, and the show will make you feel good and laugh at yourself as well as Josh. Add in a dancing Darth Vader and random visits from Neil Diamond, the strange-sounding show is nothing but fun.

The Other Josh Cohen will be performed eight times a week, Wednesday through Sunday. Performance Schedule: Wednesday at 7:30pm, Thursday at 1:30pm and 7:30pm, Friday at 8:00pm, Saturday at 1:30pm and 8:00pm and Sunday at 1:30pm and 7:00pm. Tickets are on sale now and range from $27 to $98. Get tickets at 973.376.4343, the Paper Mill Playhouse Box Office at 22 Brookside Drive in Millburn, or online at
