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.
OTG is excited to highlight the intimacy of this masterwork by transforming its newly renovated black box theater into an immersive cabaret space. This will make seating extremely limited, so buy in advance to avoid disappointment!
The Ophelia Theater entrance and parking lot for Floyd Collins is located in the Variety Boys and Girls Club parking lot off of 21st St.
