About the Play:

Tiny Beautiful Things is a full-length dramatic comedy adapted for the stage by Nia Vardalos. An online dating columnist draws from her own life to help thousands of readers navigate life, love, grief, and forgiveness. Based on the best-selling same-named book of collected advice columns written by Cheryl Strayed, under the pen name Sugar.

Tiny Beautiful Things is a play about reaching when you're stuck, healing when you're broken, and finding the courage to take on the questions which have no answers. Sugar is an unpaid, anonymous online advice columnist. Thousands of people have turned to her column Dear Sugar for words of wisdom, honesty and hope. At first unsure of herself, Sugar uses empathy and her personal experiences to help those seeking guidance for obstacles both large and small, creating a beloved column. It was later revealed that Sugar was Cheryl Strayed. Nia Vardalos adapts the book, weaving together the real letters to explore the monstrous beauty, endless dark and glimmering light which are at the heart of being human.

Tiny Beautiful Things premiered in 2016 Off-Broadway at the Public Theater in a sold-out run with Academy Award-nominee Nia Vardalos in the role of Sugar.
