Jonathan Kruk — Legendary (2015Sep23)


My old friend, Jon Kruk, has been telling stories to schoolchildren for decades. His premiere ouvre, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, is a great favorite here in Westchester, where Washington Irving originally set the tale–and Jon’s lively re-telling verges on a one-man re-enactment. Below I share with all my readers his latest email:

Hi My Friends –

My headless horseman gallops live!  If, you support me in the chase.

One sleet-gripped November evening, a couple for years ago, Andrea, my film-making wife, galvanized a crew of film makers to gather in 17th century Old Dutch Church.  We got an audience of fans to fill the ancient setting of the “The Legend.” Jim Keyes pulled out all the stops on the grand pipe organ.  They filmed me performing with passion and panache, my signature story “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.”

Here’s the two minute trailer.

Now, we need to your help producing and getting the out film; “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow – a solo performance by Jonathan Kruk, Master Storyteller.”   Here’s the full story, in just three hundred in fifty words,a trailer and a pitch (two and four minutes each)

And here’s the website with everything Jonathan and headless horseman.

This film captures the drama and vitality of my retelling.  Please jump in and help me catch my dream of reaching new audiences.

Thanks very much  –

Your Storyteller

Jonathan
