The story so far...
Josh recently originated the role of Manny in 5th Floor Theatre Company's premiere reading of The Golden Age, and enjoyed a season at Valley Shakespeare Festival in Shelton, CT, performing as Bassanio in The Merchant of Venice and as The Duke of Norfolk in Henry VIII. That is 9 out of 37 Shakespeare plays Josh has performed in for those keeping score.
In the past, Josh toured with The Acting Company, performing Hamlet, directed by Ian Belknap and Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead, directed by Tony Winner John Rando in rep. The tour played 41 cities over 10 months including month-long stays Off-Broadway at The Pearl Theatre and The Guthrie Theater (Minneapolis, MN). Upon completion of the tour, Josh performed in a benefit concert of The Cradle Will Rock on Broadway at the Jacobs Theatre where Josh was praised for his “impressive” performance by playbill.com. Josh has also worked five times at The Ravinia Festival in Highland Park, Illinois, performing in works ranging from Passion to Annie Get Your Gun, all under the direction of Lonny Price. Josh has also performed in the City Center Encores! production of Can-Can and at Lincoln Center’s Rose Theatre, again in Passion, and again directed by Lonny Price as part of LCT’s Live from Lincoln Center series.
Josh is represented by Paradigm Talent Agency and Echo Lake Entertainment.
A natural athlete all his life combined with a passion for the performing arts, Josh studied singing, guitar, and percussion at The Gunnery, a boarding high school in Connecticut, becoming a Tri-M Music Honor Society alumnus while simultaneously juggling a three-sport career all four years. The transition to the acting program at Ithaca College was seamless as Josh found himself on the mainstage every semester his last two years of school while still playing ice hockey at the collegiate level. As an Academic All-American, Josh relished in the opportunity to, in a single day, rehearse for either a Shakespeare play or a musical and then lace up the skates at the hockey rink. Josh was also a member of the Dean’s List, being academically recognized for superior scholastic performance.
