 “Tiny Houses” is one of those special pieces of modern theater that both delights and causes audiences’ to think.  Is tiny better?  Is minimalism good for society and individuals?  Can we live deliberately?  Was Thoreau all wrong, “a nut job,” in his search for authenticity?  Whatever, go, see, be delighted, and learn how tiny houses are built!

Sometimes, trying to simplify your life can get complicated. That's what happens in the world premiere of Chelsea Marcantel’s “Tiny Houses” at Cleveland Play House, as Bohdi and Cath’s idealistic plan to build a miniature home runs into some roadblocks. ... 
Eastman’s characterization as Cath seems rather flat compared to the others, even given the fact that most of them are very quirky. Cath doesn’t truly connect with another character until well into the play.
