First Look at Lupita Nyong'o Making Her Broadway Debut in Eclipsed
Danai Gurira's new Broadway drama Eclipsed opens Sunday, March 6, at the John Golden Theatre.
Oscar winner Lupita Nyong'o (12 Years a Slave) makes her Broadway debut alongside Pascale Armand, Akosua Busia, Zainab Jah, and Saycon Sengbloh, who round out the all-female cast.
The story offers 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 piece, which played a sold-out run at the Public Theater in 2015, as well as a run at Yale Repertory Theatre in 2009.
