Tiny Beautiful Things - 2016 - Off-Broadway Tickets, News, Info & More

Academy Award-nominated writer and actress Nia Vardalos (My Big Fat Greek Wedding) makes her Public Theater debut with a richly funny, uniquely uplifting new show based on the book Tiny Beautiful Things by Cheryl Strayed, the best-selling author of Wild.

Vardalos is Sugar, the anonymous online advice columnist—later revealed to be Strayed—who thousands of people have turned to for words of wisdom, honesty and hope. At first unsure of herself, Sugar finds a way to weave her own life experiences together with the deep yearning and real problems of her readers, 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 exceptionally moving new play about reaching when you’re stuck, healing when you’re broken and finding the courage to take on the questions that have no answer.

Running Time:

1 hour and 20 minutes

Even so, what sets her apart from fellow actors is the catalog of engagements she drums up away from the spotlight. Sam (as locals fondly call her) is a gifted, do-it-all thespian: a scenic designer who thinks like a director, a choreographer who innovates posthaste, and a handywoman with a soft spot for power tools. That's not all. A buoyant charm that conspires with a quicksilver pace makes Samantha Cormier the quintessential youth leader of many a theater camp, a role she relishes during the off-season. I'm not sure there's someone more absorbed in various aspects of the theater year-round.

He's just delivered one of his most lauded speeches, 'I've Been to the Mountaintop', and is struggling to write his next, when there's a knock at the door; his encounter with a mysterious woman, sent to deliver him coffee, sends his world into a tailspin.
