Based on a true story, Floyd Collins follows its title character, who chases a dream of fame and fortune by turning a Kentucky cave into a tourist attraction.
In 1925, Floyd Collins himself became the attraction when he becomes trapped 200 feet underground. As reporters and gawkers from across the country descend on the property, alone, Floyd fights for his sanity and ultimately his life. This haunting musical, one of the most acclaimed in recent years, tells the transcendent tale of a true American dreamer and the contrast between the cynicism of the media and real emotions discovered by Floyd and his family.
Book by Tina Landau. Music and lyrics by Adam Guettel. Lyrics by Dorothy Fields, additional lyrics by Tina Landau.
