Abingdon Theatre Company has added two additional performances of Charles Messina's A Room of My Own, on Sunday, February 21, and Sunday, March 13. Both performances will take place at 7pm. Additionally, there will be talkbacks with playwright and director Messina following performances on March 1 and 8.

A Room of My Own is a semiautobiographical work in which Messina recounts growing up in an eccentric Italian-American family in Greenwich Village. Ralph Macchio (The Karate Kid) plays Carl Morelli, a writer reminiscing about his adolescence in the cramped apartment that he shared with his family. Mario Cantone (Steve) plays his flamboyant Uncle Jackie. Directed by the author, the show begins previews February 13 at the June Havoc Theatre, with opening night set for February 25. The run is scheduled to conclude March 13.

Completing the company are Nico Bustamante as 10-year-old Carl, Kendra Jain (New Year's Eve) as Jeannie Morelli, Johnny Tammaro (Tony n' Tina's Wedding) as Peter Morelli, Joli Tribuzio (Tony n' Tina's Wedding) as Dotty Morelli, and Liza Vann (The Road to Damascus) as Aunt Jean.

The production features scenic design by Brian Dudkiewicz, costume design by Catherine Siracusa, lighting design by Mike Megliola, and sound design by Ian Wehrle.
