Ralph Macchio Goes Back in Time for Role in the Play ‘A Room of My Own’

Actor Ralph Macchio stopped by “Extra’s” H&M studio in Times Square to talk with AJ Calloway about his new play “A Room of My Own.”

Macchio explained, “I play Carl Morelli — he's a writer. It is a comedy about an Italian-American eccentric, slightly dysfunctional, if not very dysfunctional, Italian family living in a studio apartment on Thompson Street [in Greenwich Village, New York] in 1979.”

He added, “I'm going back in my life to write and make sense of the insanity I grew up with, so I interact with my 10-year-old self and I weave in and out of my memory and how it’s warped over time.”

Watch the video for more about “A Room of My Own,” and for some reminiscing about Ralph’s “Karate Kid” days!
