About Tiny Beautiful Things

In 2020, the Kennedy Center shares another original production that captures the strength of human nature. From 2010 to 2012, thousands of people wrote letters asking for advice from an anonymous online columnist named Sugar, who drew from her own life experiences to answer in a candid, often brutally honest exchange. It was later revealed that Sugar was the pseudonym of Cheryl Strayed, a struggling writer. Based on the best-selling book by Strayed ("Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail") and adapted for the stage by Nia Vardalos ("My Big Fat Greek Wedding"), "Tiny Beautiful Things" is about reaching when you’re stuck, healing when you’re broken, and finding the courage to take on the questions that have no answers.
