Floyd Collins

February 14 thru March 1

Kentucky, 1925.

Cave explorer Floyd Collins dreams of finding fame and fortune underground. When a cave-in leaves him trapped 55 feet below the earth’s surface, the media circus above ground makes his personal tragedy a national sensation.

Based on a true story, Tina Landau and Adam Guettel’s award-winning musical is an examination of the media’s reaction to the events in the cave, the various attempts to rescue Floyd, and a moving insight into a family’s suffering.

Influenced by Bluegrass and Americana, Guettel’s stunning score beautifully illuminates the transcendent tale of a true American dreamer.
