Abingdon Theatre presents a world premiere coming-of-age tale by playwright Charles Messina, set in Greenwich Village during the '70s. Starring Ralph Macchio. More…
Charles Messina's semi-autobiographical comedy, 'A Room of My Own,' revolves around a writer who grows up in a wacky Italian-American family. Set in a small tenement apartment in late 1970s Greenwich Village, the play follows 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.
