Lupita Nyong’o Takes On NYC Stage!
Lupita Nyong’o is taking on The Big Apple!
The Oscar-winner will be making her stage debut in the New York City premiere of Danai Gurira’s drama Eclipsed.
Previews begin on September 29th, and the play will “look at the terrible conflicts in post-colonial Africa with an eye that is both incisive and deeply compassionate.”
Public Theater artistic director Oskar Eustis told press, “A feminist reading of the Liberian Civil War, a war that was ended by women, Eclipsed is both heart-breaking and profoundly life-affirming. We are delighted to welcome the extraordinary Lupita Nyong’o to The Public in this vitally important play.”
