Josh's choreography has been featured on film, television, and in theaters all across the country. He has had the great pleasure of choreographing for some of musical theater's best actors and some of the dance worlds greatest dancers.
Josh trained in musical theater at the University of Michigan before moving to New York City. After performing in seven Broadway musicals, being the associate choreographer on Broadway shows like the THE DROWSY CHAPERONE, and the workshop of AMERICAN IDIOT, Josh branched off to create his own work. His years of experience as an actor and associate made the transition an easy one.
With great directors like Frank Galati, Gordon Greenberg, Lonny Price and others, Josh has been able to create very exciting work all over the country. BROADWAY: THREE GENERATIONS at The Kennedy Center allowed Josh to choreograph three drastically different styles with productions of "Girl Crazy," "Bye Bye Birdie," and "Side Show." SONDHEIM: THE BIRTHDAY CONCERT with the New York Philharmonic was a chance to choreograph for American Ballet Theatre's Maria Riccetto, and Blaine Hoven. He choreographed the newly revised production of WORKING with new music by Lin Manuel Miranda at the Broadway Playhouse in Chicago and The Old Globe. He won the Sarasota Theater Award for his BARNUM at the Asolo Rep. Other credits include the Ravinia production of ANNIE GET YOUR GUN starring Patti LuPone, THEY'RE PLAYING OUR SONG starring Jason Alexander and Stephanie J. Block at Reprise in Los Angeles, the new musical ACADEMY at the Maltz Jupiter Theater, DREAMGIRLS, THE FULL MONTY, and HAIRSPRAY at The North Carolina Theater, 1776 at the Papermill Playhouse, and BEAUTIFUL GIRLS starring Donna McKechnie, and Marin Mazzie at The Manhattan School of Music.
The film and stage version of COMPANY starring Neil Patrick Harris gave Josh some of his best reviews. Stephen Holden of the New York Times praised his choreography as "witty," and went on to rave, "The high point was the second act opener, "Side By Side," a fantastic, perfectly timed choral set piece with a kick line, hat waving and vaudevillian razzmatazz that for one euphoric moment unites bickering individuals into a triumphantly happy little community." After the success at Lincoln Center, Josh's choreography for COMPANY was featured on the 2011 TONY AWARDS.
Josh was blessed with the chance to take over Jerry Mitchell's annual BROADWAY BARES. Josh directed and created both STRIP-OPOLY and MASTERPIECE! to great success. After working on that scale Josh has become the director of the 2XIST fashion show in New York City, and has directed many industrial entertainments. For the Westport Playhouse Josh directed THEY'RE PLAYING OUR SONGS as a celebration to the theater's long history and a tribute to Bernadette Peters. Josh also directed THE MAN BEHIND THE IRON MASK, and JOSEPH..., and the reading of EMMA WOODHOUSE'S SINGLE GIRLS GUIDE.
