Sleepy Hollow Double Take
The modern-day twist on Washington Irving’s classic story premieres on Fox tonight, while a stage production hits the Serenbe stage next month.
North Carolina serves as the setting for the once-sleepy town where the headless horseman is on his murderous rampage in the new TV drama “Sleepy Hollow.” Ichabod Crane, played by Tom Mison, is pulled two and a half centuries through time to stop the evil and unravel a mystery that dates back to the founding fathers. Clues from the past enlighten mysteries in the present, and each episode will feature a flashback to Ichabod’s life in 1776. Fox’s “Sleepy Hollow” promises to be ripe with untold stories from American history and cloaked in mythology.
Tune in tonight at 9/8c for the pilot episode and keep an eye out for St. Luke’s Episcopal Church and the Bell Tower in Salisbury.
Over in Georgia, Sleepy Hollow fans can see the story come to life at Serenbe Playhouse outside Atlanta. “The Sleepy Hollow Experience” opens October 10 and runs through the 31 with performances Thursday through Sunday. The Serenbe Stables set the stage for the spooky world of Ichabod, the Headless Horseman and Brom Bones. “You will find yourself being guided by roving minstrel story tellers through the haunted hall of Serenbe Stables, while the Headless Horseman rushes about on live horseback. Keep your wits about you or you might be his next victim,” warns the production’s website.
Tickets are $20 and $50 for a VIP Monster Mash Party on Halloween.
