From the minds of Broadway’s John Rapson and Jeremy Landon Hays comes a thrilling new ghost story for the stage, making its world premiere at Amphibian before a New York premiere in 2023.
The Hollow re-acquaints us with the prolific creator of America’s earliest ghost stories; Washington Irving. Our narrator spins Irving’s tales into vivid light…only to find himself entangled in his own web of paranormal terrors. John Rapson’s new stage adaptation of “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” brings horror and humor in equal measure, up close and in-person in a new Halloween tradition.
In collaboration with visionary creatives like Tony Award winning costume designer Gregg Barnes (Kinky Boots, Mean Girls, The Drowsy Chaperone) and Broadway scenic/projection designer Caite Hevner (Derren Brown: Secret, In Transit), this chilling one-act play will have you watching your back long after the lights go down.
