Also featured in the cast are Vanessa Aspillaga, Jack Gilpin, Julie Halston, David Margulies and Robert Christopher Riley.

BroadwayWorld's cameras joined the cast as they began rehearsals on February 26th!

The new comedy Chasing Manet by Tina Howe, is described as "a rebellious painter from a distinguished family in Boston and an ebullient Jewish woman with a huge adoring family form an unlikely bond. Inside the confining walls of Mount Airy Nursing Home, the two plot an escape to Paris aboard the QE2. But can they possibly pull it off amidst the chaos of their surroundings? The tension and comedy grow as they struggle to take wing for the last time," press notes say.
