VIDEO: ECLIPSED's Lupita Nyong'o 'Enjoying Every Moment' of Broadway Debut
Lupita Nyong'o stopped by today's "LIVE" today to talk with hosts Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan about making her Broadway debut in ECLIPSED. "It is a lot of work, but I am enjoying every moment of it," shares the Oscar winner. Watch the clip below!
The new American play Eclipsed by Danai Gurira, starring Academy Award winner Lupita Nyong'o, opened on March 6th, 2016 on Broadway at the Golden Theatre (252 W. 45th Street). The play also stars Pascale Armand, Akosua Busia, Zainab Jah and Saycon Sengbloh and is directed by Liesl Tommy.
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.
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.
