In A Room of My Own, playwright and director Charles Messina recounts growing up with his eccentric Italian-American family in Greenwich Village. Ralph Macchio is Carl Morelli, a writer who reminisces about his adolescence and childhood dreams of the world outside his crowded downtown tenement. Wishing for his own room-and an Atari-Little Carl (Bustamante) shares the tiny studio in a five-flight walk-up with his unemployed father Peter (Tammaro), older sister Jeannie (Jain), and strong-willed mother Dotty (Tribuzio). Other relatives include Carl's high-strung uncle Jackie, portrayed by Mario Cantone, and estranged aunt Jean (Vann). Messina's new Off-Broadway comedy takes a hilarious and heartfelt look at New York City in the late 1970s.
The production includes set design by Brian Dudkiewicz; lighting design by Mike Megliola; costume design by Catherine Siracusa; sound design by Ian Wehrle; props design by Addison Heeren; and casting by Lori Malkin. Production Stage Manager is Deidre Works.
