Why Does a Play About the Internet Have a Realistic Set?

urban excavations: It might be about strangers communicating on the vast and anonymous internet, but Tiny Beautiful Things is a play of personal moments and intimate environs.

Now playing at the Public in their Shiva Theater space, the show adapts the online advice columns that Cheryl Strayed wrote under the pseudonym “Sugar.” Three actors play scores of her readers, asking for insights on love, life, and relationships, and Nia Vardalos plays Sugar herself, responding with the insight that made the original columns a sensation.
