Academy Award winner Lupita Nyong’o (12 Years a Slave) makes her Broadway debut in Eclipsed following its sold-out, critically acclaimed run at The Public Theater. Written by playwright and “The Walking Dead” star Danai Gurira, Eclipsed is the story of five extraordinary women brought together by upheaval in their homeland of Liberia. They forge a close-knit community... one that inspires them to feats of increasingly greater strength. This marks the first production in Broadway history to feature an all-female cast, playwright and director. Eclipsed, directed by Liesl Tommy, began performances on February 23rd ahead of a March 6th Opening Night. On May 3, Eclipsed recieved six Tony Award nominations including Best Play, Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role (Lupita Nyong'o) and two Best Performance by an Actress in a Featured Role nominations (Pascale Armand and Saycon Sengbloh).
