“Floyd Collins” is based on the true story of a cave explorer who discovers what he believes could be a major tourist attraction, only to become trapped inside the cave on his way out. The efforts to rescue him above ground became one of the nation’s first-ever media circuses, drawing widespread attention and captivating the public.

A planned 2022 Off-Broadway revival by Out of the Box Theatrics was canceled, citing that Landau and Guettel were revising the show and did not want it produced in New York City at that time – suggesting that the upcoming Broadway production will likely feature significant revisions.
