Tiny Beautiful Things

About This Show

Academy Award-nominated writer and actress Nia Vardalos (My Big Fat Greek Wedding) makes her Public Theater debut with a funny, uplifting play she adapted herself from the bestselling book Tiny Beautiful Things by Cheryl Strayed, the internationally acclaimed author of Wild. Vardalos plays Sugar, an online advice columnist whom thousands of people turn to for words of wisdom, honesty, and hope. As anonymous readers come to her with their deepest personal problems, Sugar — who in real life revealed herself as Strayed — finds a way to weave her own experiences together with theirs, creating a column about the monstrous beauty, darkness, and glimmering light at the heart of being human. Tony Award nominee Thomas Kail (Hamilton) directs this new play about reaching when you’re stuck, healing when you’re broken, and finding the courage to take on the questions that don’t have an answer.
