Oscar winner Lupita Nyong'o, who is a 2016 Tony Award nominee for her performance in Danai Gurira's Eclipsed at the John Golden Theatre, received a Sardi's caricature on May 19.

Written by Danai Gurira, Eclipsed takes 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. Liesl Tommy directs the production, which played a sold-out run at the Public Theater in 2015.

Nyong'o won an Oscar for her performance in the film 12 Years a Slave. She earned Tony, Drama Desk, and Outer Critics Circle Award nominations for her performance in Gurira's Eclipsed.

Lupita Nyong'o and her caricature are flanked by Eclipsed director Liesl Tommy, cast members Saycon Sengbloh, Akuosa Busia, Pascale Armand, Zainab Jah, and playwright Danai Gurira.
