"Floyd Collins": A Haunting Musical Drama

Saturday, Apr 14, 2012 2:00p to 4:00p

Based on a true story, with music and lyrics by Adam Guettel (Tony award winner for The "Light in the Piazza"). On January 30, 1925, while trying to discover a new entrance to the system of underground caves that were a popular tourist attraction in Kentucky, Floyd Collins, a local caver, became trapped in a narrow crawlway 55 feet below the surface. The reports on efforts to save Collins propelled his plight into a media sensation. The show won an Obie Award for best music score.
