Gloria Steinem, Alfre Woodard, and John Turturro Welcome Lupita Nyong'o to Broadway
Danai Gurira's new drama, Eclipsed, directed by Liesl Tommy, celebrated its opening night at the Golden Theatre.
Directed by Liesl Tommy, the work comes to Broadway after a sold-out run at the Public Theater in 2015.
Eclipsed is a look at the Liberian Civil War from the perspective of women held captive by a Liberian rebel officer. With the arrival of a new woman who can read, and the return of an old one who can kill, their possibilities are quickly transformed.
The company is led by Oscar winner Lupita Nyong'o, who performs alongside Pascale Armand, Akosua Busia, Zainab Jah, and Saycon Sengbloh.
Following the show, the cast and their guests headed to Gotham Hall to celebrate.
