With its staged reading of “Tiny Beautiful Things,” Theater Voices returns to a live performance format for the first time since the start of the pandemic!
“Tiny Beautiful Things” is based upon a collection of letters sent to writer Cheryl Strayed’s online advice column “Dear Sugar.” The column owed its success to Strayed’s nonjudgmental, empathetic responses that drew upon her personal experience. Adapted for the stage by actress Nia Vardalos (“My Big Fat Greek Wedding”), the play is about reaching when you’re stuck, healing when you’re broken and finding the courage to take on questions that have no answers.
Theater Voices will present a staged reading of this luminous play, directed by Michael Kennedy, at Steamer No. 10 Theatre, 500 Western Avenue, Albany, on Friday, April 8 at 8 p.m., Saturday, April 9 at 3 p.m. and 8 p.m., and Sunday, April 10 at 3 p.m. As always, admission is free.
Since early 2020, the company has offered virtual performances that also served as fundraisers for its home base, Steamer No. 10 Theatre in Albany. The improved outlook for COVID has prompted the company to return to its unique staged reading format, which offers fully staged, script-in-hand productions with minimal use of scenery and costumes.
