Based on the bestselling book by Cheryl Strayed and adapted for the stage by Nia Vardalos, “Tiny Beautiful Things” personifies the questions and answers that “Sugar” was publishing online from 2010-2012. When the struggling writer was asked to take over the unpaid, anonymous position of advice columnist, Strayed used empathy and her personal experiences to help those seeking guidance for obstacles both large and small.

“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 that have no answers.

Contains adult themes and language.

Please be advised that this show is not recommended for children and there may be topics that, while treated compassionately, may be difficult for some members of our community.
