News   PHOTO CALL: Chasing Manet, with Alexander and Cohen, Opens Off-Broadway Tina Howe's Chasing Manet, starring Jane Alexander and Lynn Cohen, opened Off-Broadway at Primary Stages April 9. Michael Wilson directs.

The cast celebrated its opening night with a party at Sarabeth's. Alexander and Cohen are joined in the cast by Vanessa Aspillaga, Jack Gilpin, Julie Halston, David Margulies and Rob Riley.

In Chasing Manet, "a rebellious painter from a distinguished family in Boston and an ebullient Jewish woman with a huge adoring family form an unlikely bond," as show notes reveal. "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?"

Here are photos from the festivities:
