New York, NY (March 6, 2014) – Ralph Macchio and Mario Cantone will headline the cast of a special industry reading of A Room of My Own, the anticipated new comedy written and directed by Charles Messina.

Charles Messina’s hilarious semi-autobiographical comedy, A Room of My Own, revolves around a writer’s story of growing up in his wacky Italian-American family living in a small tenement apartment in late 1970s Greenwich Village. Following 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, Messina has crafted a feel-good, warm-hearted adult comedy with huge laughs and a big heart.
A Room of My Own is presented by two-time Tony® Award-winning producers Bruce Robert Harris and Jack W. Batman who have assembled a team creative team that includes Michael Hotopp (Set), Amy Jacobs (General Manager, Bespoke Theatricals) and Michael Cassara (Cassara Casting) to begin the process of bringing the play to Broadway in the near future.
