Congratulations goes to the cast of the off-Broadway show, Eclipsed! The play, which stars Oscar winning-actress Lupita Nyong’o, is headed to the “Great White Way” after completing a very successful run at The Public Theater November 29.
As previously reported, Eclipsed is set in 2003 at the end of the civil war in Liberia and follows a group of women who are captives of rebels fighting the government. The production is written by The Walking Dead star Danai Gurira and features Nyong’o alongside Pascale Armand, Akosua Busia, Zainab Jah and Atlanta’s own, Saycon Sengbloh.
Eclipsed on Broadway will begin previews February 23 and will officially open on March 6 at the Golden Theater for a limited 17-week run.
