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, an examination of the media’s reaction to the events in the cave and the various attempts to rescue Floyd, is also 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.
