“A heart-tugging, emotionally rewarding evening.” —HuffPost

A celebration of the simple beauty of being human, this funny and deeply touching exploration of resilience is based on Cheryl Strayed’s (Wild) journey as the beloved anonymous advice columnist for “Dear Sugar.” Over the years, thousands of people turned to Sugar for words of wisdom, compassion, and hope. At first unsure of herself, Sugar finds a way to weave her own life experiences together with the deep yearning and heartrending questions from her readers. Brilliantly adapted for the stage by Nia Vardalos, the Academy Award-nominated writer of My Big Fat Greek Wedding.

Reviews of "Tiny Beautiful Things"

"Exhilarating ... Strayed barely leaves her kitchen. But her passage through Tiny Beautiful Things is as resonant as her 1,100-mile mile trek through the Western wilderness and filled with collectible, golden treasures." - The Oregonian
