Lincoln Center Theater will stage the long-awaited Broadway premiere of Adam Guettel and Tina Landau’s musical Floyd Collins at the Vivian Beaumont Theater, beginning March 27, 2025.

Floyd Collins is based on the true story of a cave explorer in 1925 Kentucky, who becomes trapped 200 feet underground. With a score by Guettel and book, lyrics, and direction by Landau, the musical premiered in 1994 at the American Music Theater Festival, before an off-Broadway run at Playwrights Horizons in 1996. Casting is still to be announced.

Also newly announced are two off-Broadway productions at the Mitzi E. Newhouse Theater: Katori Hall’s The Blood Quilt, directed by Lileana Blain-Cruz (begins October 30), and a new version of Ibsen’s Ghosts, adapted by Mark O’Rowe and directed by Jack O’Brien (begins February 13). Further details about each production will be provided at a later date.

This fall, as previously announced, the company will present the world premiere of Ayad Akhtar’s McNeal, directed by Bartlett Sher and starring Academy Award winner Robert Downey Jr. Previews begin September 6 at the Vivian Beaumont Theater.
