  Tiny Beautiful Things at Pasadena Playhouse

Tiny Beautiful Things

Pasadena Playhouse
39 S. El Molino Ave. Pasadena

The Huffington Post called it, ďa heart-tugging, emotionally rewarding evening.Ē A celebration of the simple beauty of being human, Tiny Beautiful Things is based on Cheryl Strayedís (Wild) journey as the beloved anonymous advice columnist for Dear Sugar. Over the years, thousands of people turned to Sugar for words of wisdom, compassion and hope. At first unsure of herself, Sugar finds a way to weave her own life experiences together with the deep yearning and heartrending questions from her readers. This funny and deeply touching exploration of resilience at The Pasadena Playhouse was brilliantly adapted for the stage by Nia Vardalos, the Academy Award-nominated writer of My Big Fat Greek Wedding.

Los Angeles Times - Recommended

"...The self-help journey has privileged the individual over the collective, but whatís refreshing about this play, which opened on Sunday at Pasadena Playhouse, is the understanding that our actions have ethical as well as emotional fallout. And that try as we may, these realms really canít be separated."

Stage and Cinema - Recommended

"...Well, there certainly is nothing wrong with good advice. And thereís plenty of that in the structurally unconventional Tiny Beautiful Things, Nia Vardalosís stage adaptation of Cheryl Strayedís epistolary best-selling book which, in the incarnation at Pasadena Playhouse starring Vardalos herself, feels like a warm little hug when it could have been gripping and cathartic."

"...In need of a good laugh? A good cry? A message of comfort and joy in these particularly troubled times? Then look no further than the Pasadena Playhouse, where My Big Fat Greek Wedding star Nia Vardalos has set up house this month with her powerful stage adaptation of Cheryl Strayedís Tiny Beautiful Things."

"...Highly theatrical, Strayed's lyrics of care sweep the play along in individual episodes. They touch the heart. Sugar responds in what she reveals in one scene as Unconditional Positive Regard. She is harnessed to her own truth."

Stage Raw - Highly Recommended

"...Theatergoers, be warned: After seeing Tiny Beautiful Things, now playing at the Pasadena Playhouse, your heart may feel like a raw nerve. Itís a show that sneaks up on you ó how moving can a few actors reading advice columns aloud be?"
