Joe Franklin Attends A ROOM OF MY OWN For His Bday 3/9

Legendary Late Night TV personality Joe Franklin was always one to do things his own way. So why should his birthday be any different. This year Franklin will be celebrating his birthday - what he is calling his 39th birthday! - by attending an invitation only, industry reading of Charles Messina's new play "A Room of My Own" at the Players Theater in Greenwich Village on Monday , March 9 at 6:00 pm. The play is being presented by NahNotOutsideMyHouse! Productions Inc. in association with Shortened Attention Span and producer Al Messina.

The always quirky Franklin, who has supported up and coming talent his whole life, will take in Messina's comedy set in the late 1970s and revolving around one wacky Italian-American family living in a small tenement apartment in the Village. Franklin said, "I wouldn't miss it for the world!"

The cast of A Room of My Own features Tony 'n Tina's Wedding stars Johnny Tammaro, Gina Ferranti, Chris DePierro, Gina Musumeci, and Carlo Rivieccio. Rounding out the stellar cast is Monica Arazi, who was last seen in John Guare's Cop Out and Talking Dog at The Gene Frankel Theater, and young John Barbieri, who starred in Messina's play Klepto last season at The Players. The narrator is Shayne Dukevitch.

Writer/Director Charles Messina is best known for his work on the off-Broadway hits Cirque Jacqueline and Mercury: The Afterlife and Times of a Rock God. Currently, Messina is directing the musical Be My Love, about The Life of legendary tenor Mario Lanza, written by Richard Vetere and produced by Sonny Grosso and Phil Ramone.
