The HoneyZoomers

The Honeyzoomers is the first series about the pandemic shot during the pandemic – made in the classic sitcom style, it is a show that will take you back to the present! 

​A writer from Manhattan.  An actor from Brooklyn.  Another actor from the Bronx.  A composer from New Jersey.  All working remotely and all in the service of creating the first series shot about the Coronavirus pandemic during the pandemic.  That’s what we wanted to do.  To be a testament to this point in history that we’re all living through.  And to do it in the style of the old fashioned sitcoms we love:  The Odd CoupleAll in the Family, and, of course, The Honeymooners

Stomping Ground

Growing Up on the Streets of Greenwich Village

by Dom Perruccio, with Charles Messina

Dom and Charles grew up on the narrow, winding streets of Greenwich Village. To the outside world, it was a tree-lined bohemia for artists, non-conformists, and vagabonds. There was, however, another rarely seen and much darker side to this free-spirited Shangri-La. This new novel, based on true events, introduces its reader to a unique coming-of-age story. With the eclectic world of the Village as its backdrop, the narrative weaves a tale of delinquent youth and street violence, set against some of the most infamous events in NYC history: Stonewall, The Washington Square Riot, and Mafia hits. Moreover, the book shows the influence of gang culture and hoodlum mentality on a generation of youngsters who grew up honoring an antiquated code that could only lead them to despair, prison, or death. In the tradition of Clockers, The Wanderers, and Down These Mean Streets, Stomping Ground is an honest and often graphic look at a world you only thought you knew.

World Premiere Production

In 2016, Abingdon Theatre presented the world premiere coming-of-age tale by playwright Charles Messina, set in Greenwich Village during the 70s. Starring Ralph Macchio and Mario Cantone.

Charles Messina’s semi-autobiographical comedy, ‘A Room of My Own,’ revolves around a writer who grows up in a wacky Italian-American family. Set in a small tenement apartment in late 1970s Greenwich Village, the play follows 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.
