About the show

Be Bold Productions presents their original musical based on "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow." More…

A musical adaptation of Irving’s 1820 tale, 'Sleepy Hollow' provides another take on the famous tale, as we learn how Ichabod Crane became the man we know from legend today. Katrina Van Tassel has her eye on marriage, but her suitor of choice, Brom, doesn't want to settle down yet. When a young, educated schoolteacher named Ichabod Crane moves in just across the Hollow, she sees the opportunity to snare her love by roping Crane into her love games. For everyone else in the town, offended by the Yankee's isolated and calculating ways, the legend of the Hollow is a convenient way to tease the gullible man, hardly the horror we consider it to be today. But what happens when the Headless Horseman does come?

Disappointing, Excruciating, Slow

See it if I honestly can't think of any reason anyone should see it. I give the performers a "B" for a valiant effort

Don't see it if you have no patience for a bad script and poor singing.

It seemed like a community theater production, Disappointing, Banal, Slow, Great scenic and costume design

See it if you like musicals with beautiful yet simple scenic and costume designs. The musical was fun to look at.

Don't see it if you want professional standards in acting and singing. The actors did seemed to try hard. The story line was very simple.

Entertaining, Great acting, Dated, Disappointing

See it if you have some interest in the supernatural.

Don't see it if you are expecting a great musical. The music is there but it is not enough to carry the play.

Also It is a fun show for kids who don't get too scared when the lights go ... Read more Read less

Entertaining, Funny, Fluffy, Quirky, Ambitious

See it if you enjoy original songs about an unusual topic for a musical. The cast does a lot with such a small theater really filling the space.

Don't see it if you think the Legend of Sleepy Hollow isn’t suitable for a musical or you need a fully developed story.

Resonant, Delightful, Refreshing

See it if Part play part musical this is pleasant production. Moments of fear, laughter and one scene that stole the show between Old man and Crane.

Don't see it if only want lavish sets, predicting story lines and no originality.

Don't see it if Expecting profound dialog or over the top broadway production.

See it if I had the pleasure of seeing the original cast and watching the show evolve. It's a wonderfully haunting and original take on a classic!

for a previous production "For a show in which the Headless Horseman returns to take vengeance, the ending of this play is oddly cheerful. But one can suppose, when you live in Sleepy Hollow, life always goes on no matter who goes missing on a stroll after dark. Don't go into this musical expecting it to be about the Head...
