Christina Sajous will direct a rare revival of Adam Guettel and Tina Landau's musical Floyd Collins, running November 11-December 18 at the Church of the Blessed Sacrament on Manhattan's Upper West Side. Out of the Box Theatrics presents the off-Broadway production.

The musical tells the story of the explorer Floyd Collins, whose death became a media sensation in the early 20th century after he got trapped 200 feet underground in a Kentucky cave.
The creative team for Floyd Collins will include Billy Bustamante as associate director and choreographer, Adam Rothenberg as music director, Ant Ma as scenic designer, Brynne Oster-Bainnson as costume designer, Christopher Wong as lighting designer and Germán Martínez as sound designer. Tyler Danhaus is stage manager. Egypt Dixon is assistant stage manager.
