"This is the original and daring musical of our day...a powerhouse."
- New York Magazine

 

Get up close & personal with the new ONSTAGE series at La Mirada Theatre! A new, intimate theatre experience has been created by placing 199 audience seats on the stage. The stage will be filled with an incredible award-winning musical AND the audience. Seating is VERY limited so get you tickets early!

With a large cast and live musicians, feel the adventure of Floyd Collins's dream of fame and fortune as he is trapped in a narrow cave 200 feet below the surface. See how his goal of creating a tourist attraction becomes a reality, with him as the main attraction. With music and lyrics by Tony Award winner Adam Guettel (The Light in the Piazza) and book and lyrics by innovative theatre artist Tina Landau, this haunting musical, which won a Lucille Lortel Award, a Drama Desk Award, and an Obie Award when it premiered in New York, tells the transcendant tale of a true American dreamer.

-Los Angeles Times

 

"One of the three or four truly great music theatre scores of the last decade."

- New York Newsday

 

About Floyd Collins

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.
