Primary Stages concludes the 2008-2009 season with the world premiere of the new comedy Chasing Manet by Tina Howe, in which 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. Directed by Michael Wilson, the cast will feature Tony Award-winner Jane Alexander and Lynn Cohen.
