Harris joins Bacall, 'Beauty Queen' Manahan close to deal

NEW YORK — The cast of the upcoming Lauren Bacall starrer “Waiting in the Wings” continues to firm up, with a deal inked for Rosemary Harris and one imminent for thesp Anna Manahan.

Manahan move

She also appeared in the London productions of “Lovers” and “The Plough and the Stars.” She received a Tony nomination for her work in “Lovers” and an Olivier nod for “Plough.”
