Sleepy Hollow Revisited

– Chris Hart, actor portrayal of Ichabod Crane.

The original story, published in 1820 by Washington Irving, tells of a poor, gangly schoolteacher, Ichabod Crane, who tries to win the affection of heiress Katrina Van Tassel but is never heard from again after asking for her hand in marriage. The story goes that Van Tassel’s father would not have his daughter marry a pauper, and the reader remains to wonder about the cause of Crane’s untimely disappearance.

That is where storyteller, and Ohio Northern Professor, Chris Hart picks up the farce. Appearing in costume as Ichabod Crane, Hart twists the tale to give the listener a new look and some closure to the open-ended story.
