A Room of My Own, With Ralph Macchio and Mario Cantone, Adds Matinee Performance
Charles Messina's new play is set to open at the June Havoc Theatre.
Abingdon Theatre Company has added a matinee performance to its world-premiere run of A Room of My Own on Friday, March 4, at 3pm. Written and directed by Charles Messina, the production opens February 25 and runs through March 13 at Abingdon's June Havoc Theatre.
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.
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.
