The West Coast premiere of Nia Vardalos' Tiny Beautiful Things began performances February 9, ahead of a February 14 opening at the Old Globe Theatre in San Diego. The production, directed by James Vásquez, is set to run through March 17.
In Tiny Beautiful Things, based on the bestselling book by Cheryl Strayed, Sugar is an anonymous online advice columnist—later revealed to be Strayed—to whom thousands of people have turned 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.
