WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Adapted from the best-selling book by Cheryl Strayed, the play Tiny Beautiful Things is based on actual events. Thousands of people wrote letters asking for advice from an anonymous online columnist named Sugar, who drew from her own life experiences to answer in a candid, often brutally honest exchange. It was later revealed that "Sugar" was Cheryl Strayed.
Academy Award nominee Nia Vardalos has adapted Strayed's book, weaving together the real letters to explore the monstrous beauty, unfathomable dark, and glimmering light that are at the heart of being human. Vardalos also stars as Sugar/Strayed. Tony Award winner Thomas Kail (Hamilton) directs this play about reaching out when you're stuck, healing when you're broken, and finding the courage to take on the questions that have no answer.
