A Celebration of Wynn Handman’s 85th Birthday
and 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.
