Lupita Nyong'o on Her Bold NY Stage Debut, Ellen's Famous Oscar Selfie and Rediscovering "Normalcy."

The "vitally important" play is a story of survival and resilience set in post-colonial Africa. Here's how the show is billed: "Amid the chaos of the Liberian Civil War, the captive wives of a rebel officer band together to form a fragile community – until the balance of their lives is upset by the arrival of a new girl. Drawing on reserves of wit and compassion, Eclipsed reveals distinct women who must discover their own means of survival in this deeply felt portrait of women finding and testing their own strength in a hostile world of horrors not of their own making."

Eclipsed is being produced on Broadway by Stephen Byrd, Alia Jones-Harvey, Paula Marie Black, Carole Shorenstein Hays, Willette Klausner, Michael Magers and The Public Theater. Complete cast, creative and additional information will be announced shortly.  For more information visit
