Lupita Nyong'o To Star in Off-Broadway Production, "Eclipsed"

Lupita Nyong'o will be making her New York stage debut this fall in the Off-Broadway production, Eclipsed. The play was written by Danai Gurira, the actress who plays Michonne on The Walking Dead.

Eclipsed is about a group of women being held captive during the Liberian civil war, and the play is billed as a "feminist reading of the Liberian Civil War, a war that was ended by women."
The play will run October 14 through November 8 at the Public Theater. Previews for the show begin September 29.
