Photo Coverage: Nia Vardalos' TINY BEAUTIFUL THINGS Celebrates Opening Night at the Public

TINY BEAUTIFUL THINGS began performances on Tuesday, November 15 and runs through Sunday, December 31 at The Public Theater. BroadwayWorld was there for opening night and you can check out photos below!

Academy Award-nominated writer and actress Nia Vardalos makes her Public Theater debut with a new play she has adapted from the bestselling book Tiny Beautiful Things by Cheryl Strayed, the internationally acclaimed author of Wild. Vardalos is Sugar, the online advice columnist who thousands of people have turned to for words of wisdom, honesty and hope. 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. Tony Award winner Thomas Kail (Dry Powder, Hamilton) directs this powerful new play about reaching when you're stuck, healing when you're broken, and finding the courage to take on the questions which don't have an answer.

The complete cast features Phillip James Brannon, Alfredo Narciso, and Natalie Woolams- Torres playing multiple letter writers to the online advice columnist "Sugar," played by Nia Vardalos.

TINY BEAUTIFUL THINGS includes scenic design by Rachel Hauck, costume design by Jennifer Moeller, lighting design by Jeff Croiter, and sound design by Jill BC Du Boff.
