A Celebration of Wynn Handman’s 85th Birthday
the 45th Anniversary of
The American Place Theatre.
Sam Shepard was the first to take the
stage at the historic Hudson Theatre to pay
homage. Shepard, who is not known for such
public appearances spoke for almost 20 minutes
recounting hilarious tales of the novice
playwright and the fledgling theater company’s
run ins with the theater world’s old guard and
even The Humane Society.
