Can’t Miss Performance, The Legend, Commemorates 200-year Anniversary of Washington Irving Story, Sept. 23 in Sleepy Hollow

SLEEPY HOLLOW, N.Y. Step back into time. It’s the 1800’s, hear the clamoring metal horseshoes click across cobblestone roads in this dark Sleepy Hollow tale. The LEGEND is a simmering adaptation of Washington Irving’s iconic ghost story, “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.” Audiences will be treated to a cirque/theatre noir production with narration by Washington Irving himself (in hologram form) just in time to commemorate the 200-year anniversary of, “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.”

The LEGEND is a total emersion experience with the ground-breaking use of holograms combined with live action circus performers to tell the story. Two years ago, Westchester Circus Arts began exploring this concept with Montreal-based Neweb Labs to find out if the idea was possible.

“We invite area residents to come see the show as we make history Sept. 23. This is the first time that an American Circus will use a hologram to portray an ‘animal act’ in a circus tent. Come out, buy tickets, grab some popcorn and tell us if our concept has come alive,” says Carlo Pellegrini, creator, producer and writer of The LEGEND.

Tickets may be purchased in advance at www.sleepyhollowlegend.com. The show will run from Sept. 23 – Oct. 16 in The LEGEND Circus Tent on The East Parcel at 60 Continental Street in Sleepy Hollow. Show times: Fridays, 7 p.m.; Saturday 2 p.m. & 7 p.m., and Sundays 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $30 online and $40 at the door. Seating is limited to 200 people per show and tickets are for general admission. Running time: 90 minutes with an intermission. Minimum age recommended: 10 years old. For more information, contact Westchester Circus Arts at (914) 275-5711.

Producing The LEGEND has been a years-long endeavor by The Village of Sleepy Hollow’s Administrator Anthony Giaccio and the Village’s grant writer Fiona Matthew. Cancelled several times due to the pandemic, this project is supported by a grant awarded to the Village of Sleepy Hollow by New York State’s Empire State Development and the I ❤️ NY Division of Tourism under Governor Kathy Hochul’s Regional Economic Development Council Initiative. The Village re-engaged longtime collaborators Westchester Circus Arts to create a show that would celebrate the bicentennial publication of this story, so unique to Sleepy Hollow.

This project could not have been completed without the kind and generous sponsorships by: iloveny.com, Headless Horseman Sponsors: EDGE-ON-HUDSON, RELLA AND ASSOCIATES, Katrina Van Tassel Sponsors: A1 COMPUTER SERVICES, INC. Brom Bones Sponsors: BROWN & BROWN, INC., CAPITAL MARKETS ADVISORS, LLC., HARRIS BEACH ATTORNEYS AT LAW, LAMB & BARNOSKY LLP, PFK O’CONNER DAVIES LLP, PLANNING & DEVELOPMENT ADVISORS, SLEEPY HOLLOW ANIMAL HOSPITAL, In-Kind Sponsors: AMSTERLAND: BRAND UTOPIA, SLEEPY HOLLOW TARRYTOWN CHAMBER OF COMMERCE, VILLAGE OF SLEEPY HOLLOW
