Sam Shepard and Joseph Chaikin will read from their collaborative works Feb. 9 at 7 p.m. at the New York Kunsthalle (210 East 5th St., just off Bowery) in an evening in which the proceeds will benefit the Signature Theatre Company. Their most recent team-effort, When the World Was Green (A Chef's Fable), kicked off the Signature's current season of presenting exclusively works by Shepard, both old and new. Among the fruits of a friendship that has spanned more than 30 years are Tongues, Savage/Love and The War in Heaven.
The seating for this special one-night-only event is limited, but the $25 tickets may be reserved by calling Ticket Central at (212) 279-4200.
