Washington Irving and the Legend of Sleepy Hollow
Neill Hartley is a convincing Washington Irving, the father of the American short story, bringing you into Irving’s world, introducing you to his work, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, the most famous short story ever written. The literary lion narrates his tale and then enters his story, becoming his alter ego, Ichabod Crane. Neill Hartley is a mesmerizing Ichabod Crane: Tall and slim like Ichabod, Neill was also born in upstate New York like Ichabod, teaches voice like Ichabod and rides horses like Ichabod. It’s perfect casting. And it makes for a perfectly eerie entertaining event.
