The return engagement of Tiny Beautiful Things opens at The Public Theater October 2 with Nia Vardalos reprising her starring role. Based on the book by Cheryl Strayed, the play is adapted for the stage by Vardalos and co-conceived by Marshall Heyman, Tony-winning director Thomas Kail, and Vardalos.
Tiny Beautiful Things debuted at the Public Theater Off-Broadway in 2016 in a sold-out run starring Vardalos. The Oscar nominee plays Sugar, an online dating columnist who draws from her own life to help thousands of readers navigate life, love, grief, and forgiveness.
The encore run began performances September 18. Vardalos is joined for the return engagement by a cast made up of Teddy Cañez (A Streetcar Named Desire), Ceci Fernandez (Twelfth Night), DeLance Minefee (HONKY ), Hubert Point-Du Jour (Sojourners ), and Natalie Woolams-Torres (Julius Caesar).
