Story for Eclipsed

On the heels of her Academy Award-winning performance in 12 Years a Slave, LUPITA NYONG'O comes to Broadway in ECLIPSED, “an extraordinary work that shines and shines” (AP). The New York Times calls it “rare and powerful, with an all-star cast. The superb Lupita Nyong’o is one of the most radiant young actors to be seen on Broadway in recent seasons.”

ECLIPSED tells the story of five extraordinary women brought together by upheaval in their homeland of Liberia. It’s a stirring tale of hope, humor and resilience – and the only new play by a woman on Broadway this season. Also starring PASCALE ARMAND (The Trip to Bountiful ), AKOSUA BUSIA (The Color Purple, film), ZAINAB JAH (“Law & Order: SVU”) and SAYCON SENGBLOH (Motown ).

Critics’ Reviews for Eclipsed

"Under the bright lights of Broadway, where escapist fare or genteel revivals most often thrive, Ms. Gurira's play, directed with clarity and force by Liesl Tommy, reminds us of something profoundly important, and perhaps too easily forgotten amid our own country's continuing racial troubles: African lives matter."

Charles Isherwood, The New York Times

" "Eclipsed" is a colorful and fiery drama, and one that no doubt stands bracingly apart from ordinary Broadway fare. But there's more here than just that....The performances are top-notch."

Robert Kahn, NBC New York

"The five-member cast - all women - is a true ensemble and must not be missed."

Mark Kennedy, Associated Press
