With music and lyrics by Tony Award winner Adam Guettel (The Light in the Piazza) and book and lyrics by innovative theatre artist Tina Landau, this haunting musical, which won a Lucille Lortel Award, a Drama Desk Award, and an Obie Award when it premiered in New York, tells the transcendent tale of a true American dreamer.
ABOUT FLOYD COLLINS
In 1925, while chasing a dream of fame and fortune by turning a Kentucky cave into a tourist attraction, Floyd Collins himself became the attraction when he got trapped 200 feet underground. Alone but for sporadic contact with the outside world, Floyd fought for his sanity and ultimately his life as the rescue effort above exploded into the first genuine media circus. Reporters and gawkers from across the country descended on the property, fueling the hysteria and manipulating the nation into holding its collective breath.
