THE LEGEND OF SLEEPY HOLLOW Presented by the NOLA Project Performed in the Besthoff Sculpture Garden
The NOLA Project presents an all-new adaptation of “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” by multiple Big Easy Award-winner Pete McElligott (writer of ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND, DON QUIXOTE).
In this horrifically-hilarious new play, a theatre company arrives prepared to present Washington Irving’s 1820 tale when members of the cast and crew begin to mysteriously disappear. Fueled by fear, and the unrelenting urge to entertain, the team sets out to finish the story...by any means necessary.
Oct 16- Nov 10 At the Bestoff Sculpture Garden $15-$35
