Moonlight in Greenwich Village
3 New Plays by Charles Messina
Sunday, November 16 at 7PM
Tickets Only $20
The Sunday Series at Abingdon presents MOONLIGHT IN GREENWICH VILLAGE, a one-night-only workshop performance of three New York premieres by Charles Messina.
Each new one-act play is centered on people living in Greenwich Village, the place where author Messina was born and bred. In CHUBBY & GLEN, Messina introduces us to two friends, one gay and one straight, and their unconditional commitment to one another. FIFTEEN MINUTES OF SHAME tells the tale of how a stolen moment between people helps each one deal with loneliness and fear. A MOONEY FOR THE MISBEGOTTEN is the story of a couple who moves from NYC to Vermont, seeking an escape from the rat race, when one of them begins to long for the life they left behind.
The cast includes Jason Cerbone,*Anthony DeSando,* Mary Dimino,* Gina Ferranti,* Nick Fondulis,* Valerie Smaldone,* Johnny Tammaro,* and Michael Townsend Wright.*
Charles Messina has become a strong voice on the NY theatre scene. His plays present a world that is wholly and uniquely New York. In addition to directing the long-running show The Accidental Pervert, starring Andrew Goffman, his autobiographical comedy A Room of My Own, starring Mario Cantone and Ralph Macchio, is being developed for Broadway. Mr. Messina's Mercury: The Afterlife and Times of a Rock God, about the life of Queen frontman Freddie Mercury, has also received across-the-board critical acclaim.
