Lupita Nyong’o is headed Off Broadway! 2013's breakout star is set to make her New York stage debut when she stars in Eclipsed, a 2009 play written by The Walking Dead's Danai Gurira, later this year. The play, directed by Lisel Tommy, is described as a "feminist reading" of the Second Liberian Civil War. Set in 2003, Eclipsed follows a group of women who are abducted and made the wives of a rebel commander. The show will begin previews on September 29 and will run at the Public Theater from October 14 to November 8.
