2023 - 2024 Season

Welcome to an Amazing Year of Theatre at the Playhouse!

Tiny Beautiful Things

Based on the Book by Cheryl Strayed
Adapted for the Stage by Nia Vardalos

Tiny Beautiful Things personifies the questions and answers that “Sugar” published online from 2010 to 2012. When the struggling writer was asked to take over the unpaid, anonymous position of advice columnist, Strayed used empathy and her personal experiences to help those seeking guidance for obstacles both large and small. Tiny Beautiful Things is a play about reaching when you’re stuck, healing when you’re broken, and finding the courage to take on the questions that have no answers.

CRITIC’S PICK! “Tiny Beautiful Things is about the endangered art of listening and really hearing and responding to other people…it works beautifully as a sustained theatrical exercise in empathy.”-The New York Times.

“Catharsis, that ancient communal ritual of purging and healing…a show that aims to open our eyes to the tiny moments when the world surprises us with care.” -New York Magazine

“It’s provocative, poignant, and rich.” -New York Daily News.
