The Public Theater has announced the complete cast for the encore Off-Broadway engagement of Tiny Beautiful Things this fall. Based on the book by Cheryl Strayed, the show is adapted for the stage by Nia Vardalos, co-conceived by Marshall Heyman, Tony-winning director Thomas Kail, and Vardalos.
As previously announced, Oscar nominee Vardalos, who starred in the sold-out fall 2016 run at the Public, will return to the role of Sugar for the return production. She will be joined by Teddy Cañez (A Streetcar Named Desire), Ceci Fernandez (Twelfth Night), DeLance Minefee (HONKY ), Hubert Point-Du Jour (Sojourners ), and returning player Natalie Woolams-Torres (Julius Caesar).
Performances of Tiny Beautiful Things will begin September 19 ahead of an October 2 opening.
Vardalos has adapted Strayed’s book about an anonymous online dating columnist named Sugar. The show “weaves together the real letters to explore the monstrous beauty, unfathomable dark and glimmering light which are at the heart of being human,“ read production notes from the Public.
