Seattle Rep Announces Production Change For 2018/19 Season

Seattle Repertory Theatre today announced that due to unexpected schedule conflicts with the creative team, it will postpone its previously scheduled production of Lydia and the Troll by Justin Huertas until the 2019/20 season.

In its place, Seattle Rep will produce Tiny Beautiful Things, based on the book by best-selling author Cheryl Strayed (Wild) and adapted by Nia Vardalos (My Big Fat Greek Wedding). Tiny Beautiful Things will run May 17 - June 23, 2019 in the Leo K. Theatre and single tickets will go on sale in 2019. "We are committed to Justin Huertas and his team of collaborators for Lydia and the Troll. In order to work through these unexpected scheduling conflicts, it became clear that delaying the production is in the play's best creative interests," Braden Abraham, Seattle Rep artistic director said.

Time Out says Tiny Beautiful Things "knocks you down with its avalanche of kindness"and The New York Times raves that it is "a deeply reciprocal relationship between a show and its audience." When a struggling writer is asked to take over the unpaid anonymous position of advice columnist, Strayed used her own empathy to help those seeking guidance for life obstacles both large and small. Based on Strayed's real-life experiences as an agony aunt columnist, Tiny Beautiful Things is a 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 answers.

Seattle Rep was founded in 1963 and is currently led by Artistic Director Braden Abraham and Managing Director Jeffrey Herrmann. One of America's premier not-for-profit resident theatres, Seattle Repertory Theatre has achieved international renown for its consistently high production and artistic standards, and was awarded the 1990 Tony Award for Outstanding Regional Theatre. With an emphasis on entertaining plays of true dramatic and literary worth, Seattle Rep produces a season of plays along with educational programs, new play workshops, and special presentations. Seattle Repertory Theatre's 2018/2019 Season is sponsored in part by ArtsFund.
