The Legend of Sleepy Hollow

The Legend of Sleepy Hollow Vermont Arts 2018
Description:

Master Storyteller Jonathan Kruk’s one-man show offers a dramatic retelling of Washington Irving’s American classic, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. Written in 1819, this gothic-romance went “viral,” bringing the author wealth and fame. True to the author’s original story, the performance streamlines with spirited action, jump-starts, and wit.

Long noted for his educational theater programs given to school children, Mr. Kruk began performing Irving’s classic for Historic Hudson Valley in 1996. Currently, his October run of fifty shows at Sleepy Hollow’s Old Dutch Church, sell out before opening night. Audiences appreciate Kruk’s animated embodying of Irving’s iconic characters. He pipes and preens as Ichabod Crane delivers a rollicking Brom Bones and a coquettish Katrina Van Tassel. The Dutch New-Yorkers of Sleepy Hollow from the tremulous Farmer Brouwer to the braggadocious Doffue Martling leap with life from the storyteller’s varied voices and gestures.

Time: 10/24/18 6:30pm - 7:30pm

The former three-term governor of Vermont, who served as the deputy secretary of education and ambassador to Switzerland under President Bill Clinton, explores the topic of aging - but she looks well beyond the physical tolls and explores the emotional ones as well.
