See The Legend of Sleepy Hollow Come to Life This Fall
Have you heard of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow? In middle school, I remember learning about this tale and being taken aback by it.
Some would argue that the story behind The Legend of Sleepy Hollow is fictional while others say that it's based on true events.
Is The Legend of Sleepy Hollow a true story?
Based on the New York Historical Society, Washington Irving could have been inspired by "an actual Hessian soldier who was decapitated by a cannonball during the Battle of White Plains". This would have taken place in 1776.
Since Irving's story takes place in the Village of Sleepy Hollow in New York, this story feels more real to those who read it.
The Legend of Sleepy Hollow is now a musical in the Hudson Valley.
According to Sleepy Hollow Spellbound's social media accounts, this popular story can be seen on stage in the Hudson Valley.
The Premiere of the new musical "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" took place at the Whipple-Feeley Chapel.
"Hearts of the Hollow" was a creation that came to play on the stage of Washington Irving's classic masterpiece, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. There are characters that may seem familiar to guests such as Ichabod Crane and Katrina Van Tassel.
Patricia White wrote and produced this play. This took many years to finally come together.
