Photo Flash: Stevie Wonder Attends ECLIPSED on Broadway
ECLIPSED originally played a sold-out engagement at The Public Theater, which closed on November 29 after having been twice-extended during its celebrated run. The production marks the fastest-selling new play in recent Public history, with a bevy of starry audience members in attendance over the course of the run including luminariesOprah Winfrey, Denzel Washington, Stevie Wonder, Spike Lee, Sally Field,Chris Rock, Alfre Woodard, Harry Belafonte, and Common, among many others.
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. Directed by South African-born Liesl Tommy (The Good Negro, Appropriate), Eclipsed is a stirring tale of hope, humor and resilience-and the only new play by a woman on Broadway this season.
