Photo Coverage: Cantone, Macchio et al. in A ROOM OF MY OWN

Last night, September 20th the Bleecker Street Theater Company presented a reading of Charles Messina's new Broadway-bound comedy, A ROOM OF MY OWN as part of that theater's Play Development Series. Messina directed the reading, which featured Ralph Macchio, Mario Cantone, Lynne Koplitz, Gina Ferranti, Valerie Smaldone, Kendra Jain, Johnny Tammaro and John Barbieri. BroadwayWorld was on hand for the reading and brings you photo coverage below.

The reading was produced by Robert Nicotra and Josselyne Herman-Saccio.

A ROOM OF MY OWN is a two-act play that revolves around a playwright's Herculean attempt to tell his story of growing up in a tiny studio apartment inside a crumbling five-flight-walk-up on Thompson Street in Greenwich Village with his certifiably insane Italian-American family.
