Washington Irving's The Legend of Sleepy Hollow rises again, transformed into a spooky musical by Michael Sgouros and Brenda Bell. Set in 1790, this enduring piece of Americana tells the story of a romantic rivalry between skinny schoolteacher Ichabod Crane and town rowdy Brom Van Brunt over a wealthy farmer's daughter. Alas, Crane soon comes face-to-missing-face with the Headless Horseman, believed to be the ghost of a Revolutionary War soldier, and then mysteriously disappears. Hollow was nominated for a 2013 Innovative Theatre Award for Outstanding Original Music. Learn More

About the Ticket Supplier: SoHo PlayhouseUnder the new management of Darren Lee Cole and Faith Mulvihill, the newly renovated SoHo Playhouse continues to serve the downtown theater community as an historic 199 seat Off Broadway venue. The Huron Club below is an intimate 55 seat cabaret and bar steeped in the history of Old New York.
The SoHo Playhouse stands on land that was once Richmond Hill, a colonial mansion that served as headquarters for General George Washington and later home to Aaron Burr. Purchased from Burr in 1817, the land was then developed into federalist-style row houses by fur magnate John Jacob Astor.
15 Van Dam Street, was designated at the Huron Club, a popular meeting house and night club for the Democratic Party. The turn of the century brought the Tammany Hall machine to the Huron Club. Prominent regulars included "Battery" Dan Finn and the infamous Jimmy "Beau James" Walker, known as "The night Mayor" due to his predilection for jazz clubs and chorus girls.
The main floor was transformed into a theater in the 1920's, and in the 60's operated as the Village South, home to Playwrights Unit Workshop under the direction of Edward Albee. It was on this stage that Mr. Albee produced many first works of Terrance Mcnally, John Guare, Lanford Wilson, Sam Shephard, AR Gurney and Leroi Jones.
