Washington Irving/Legend of Sleepy Hollow in Manahawkin, NJ

  • Bay Avenue Community Center 775 East Bay Avenue Manahawkin, NJ, 08050 United States (map)

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. And it makes for a perfectly eerie entertaining event.
