Johnathan Butterell is to direct a new immersive production of FLOYD COLLINS at Wilton’s Music Hall. The production will run from 21 September – 15 October 2016. FLOYD COLLINS has music & lyrics by Adam Guettel with a book by Tina Landau.
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. This haunting musical - one of the most acclaimed in recent years - tells the transcendent tale of a true American dreamer.
The full cast and creative team are to be announced.
