Floyd Collins

UK premiere of Adam Guettel's hit musical

Floyd Collins

TJP were delighted to act as Associate Producer on this revival of Adam Guettel’s hit musical.

Could there possibly be a better environment in which to revive a little known masterpiece of musical theatre.

★★★★★ Sunday Express ‘…authentic emotional depth… thrillingly well performed by a cast led by Glenn Carter’s Floyd’

★★★★ The Telegraph ‘A grim tale produces a gem of a musical… A huge plus is the Playhouse’s mustily atmospheric railway-arch space… a 14-strong ensemble and eight-strong band who bring a zest to every vignette and song… At a time when insensitive media intrusion is under scrutiny as never before, Floyd Collins burns with peculiarly haunting relevance’

★★★★ Critics’ Choice Time Out
‘It’s still only February, but we’ll be lucky if we see a better production of a better musical all year in London’ Mark Shenton, The Stage

The Independent ‘Could there possibly be a better environment in which to revive a little known masterpiece of musical theatre… beautifully directed… nothing they could do at the NT’s Cottesloe Theatre could come within spitting distance of the atmosphere created in the vaults of Southwark Playhouse… get yourselves down to Southwark – Floyd Collins will, I fear, always be a collectors item and you’ve only six weeks to catch this revival’

‘Adam Guettel’s terrific underground musical Floyd Collins is back – in the ideal venue…the enterprising Southwark Playhouse has given it a magnificent production…’
The Observer
Derek’s Bond new production is quite beautiful’ The Times
