A by-invitation-only reading of Charles Messina's A Room of My Own is presented March 17 on the Irene Diamond Stage at The Pershing Square Signature Center (480 West 42nd Street).
Directed by the playwright, the cast features Ralph Macchio and Mario Cantone with Wendy Makkenna, Colin Critchley, Gina Ferranti, Kendra Jain and Johnny Tammaro.
Messina’s semi-autobiographical comedy, according to press notes, "revolves around a writer’s story of growing up in his wacky Italian-American family living in a small tenement apartment in late 1970s Greenwich Village. Following in the grand tradition of playwrights like Neil Simon, who used their own early family lives as inspiration to create indelible and uniquely American Broadway hits, Messina has crafted a feel-good, warm-hearted adult comedy with huge laughs and a big heart."
Producers Bruce Robert Harris and Jack W. Batman have assembled a creative team — including Michael Hotopp (set), Amy Jacobs (general manager, Bespoke Theatricals) and Michael Cassara (Cassara Casting) — to begin the process of bringing the play to Broadway in the near future.
