The Public Theater has announced complete casting for the encore engagement of Tiny Beautiful Things. With Nia Vardalos reprising her role as Sugar, the show begins previews September 19 and will run through November 12, with an official press opening on October 2.

Based on the book by Cheryl Strayed, adapted for the stage by Nia Vardalos, co-conceived by Marshall Heyman, Thomas Kail, and Nia Vardalos, and directed by Thomas Kail, Tiny Beautiful Things returns after a sold-out run at the Public in fall 2016.

The show's complete cast will feature Teddy Cañez, Ceci Fernandez, DeLance Minefee, Hubert Point-Du Jour, Nia Vardalos, and Natalie Woolams-Torres.

The play is described as follows: "As anonymous readers come to her with their deepest and most personal problems, Sugar — who ultimately revealed herself to be Strayed — finds a way to weave her own life experiences together with theirs, creating a beloved column about the monstrous beauty, endless dark and glimmering light at the heart of being human."

Tiny Beautiful Things features scenic design by Rachel Hauck, costume design by Jennifer Moeller, lighting design by Jeff Croiter, and sound design by Jill B.C. Du Boff.
