Event Description
Floyd Collins

Floyd Collins, with music and lyrics by Adam Guettel (The Light in the Piazza), is based on the real life story of a true American Dreamer.  In 1925 Kentucky, chasing dreams of fame and fortune, Floyd searches for a spectacular cave to turn into a tourist attraction. Tragically, Floyd becomes the attraction when he is trapped 200 feet below ground.  Alone but for sporadic contact with his younger brother and a reporter, Floyd fights for his sanity and life as a desperate rescue effort intensifies and America’s first media circus explodes above him.  Reporters and gawkers from across the country descend, fueling hysteria and manipulating a breathless nation.  This haunting musical boasts a distinguished score as memorable as it is engaging, and tells the transcendent tale of a true American dreamer.
