If you'd like to see Josh in a very early performance (circa 1976), check out the film biography of the American composer Charles Ives: A Good Dissonance Like A Man. Josh portrays a young Charles Ives and is credited as Joshua Hamilton. Josh's stepdad, Ted Timreck directed this bio, which is available in most large libraries.

Funny... While sorting through some boxes, I stumbled upon a playbill from  "Brighton Beach Memoirs" (circa 1984). It brought back a lot of memories. I had really wanted to see Matthew Broderick perform (He had won a Tony Award for his portrayal of a young Neil Simon and has always been one of my favorite actors.) and was worried that I might see his stand-in. I decided that since I had the old playbill handy, I might as well check to see who the stand-in was. I remembered that it was someone named Josh. To my surprise it was Josh Hamilton! It was a great role and it would have been fun to see him perform it.
