What was the highlight of our trip to Sleepy Hollow? It was the dramatic story telling of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow by one of the best performance artists around–Jonathan Kruk. 

He made his grand entrance to organ music, dressed in colonial garb, and holding an ominous pumpkin. He used dramatic tones to introduce the story and with glowing emotions.  He embodies  Irving’s most intricate characters. His inflections  had every person in the church hanging on to the edge of their pews…never knowing when the next scare might come.
