The new Uptown Magazine has got gorgeous shades of beauties on its front cover!
Lupita Nyong’o and the women of Eclipsed are taking a historic turn on Broadway. And the timing could not be more perfect. Lupita Nyong’o, Pascale Armand, Akosua Busia, Saycon Sengbloh and Zainab Jah all look picture perfect in pops of different shades of black and gold fashion ensembles.
Lupita Nyong’o on being drawn to Eclipsed:
“I was first cast as the understudy in the role I’m playing now so it was the very first role I under-studied and it was the very first role that I was assigned to at Yale. I was just drawn. I thought it was an incredibly engaging and riveting story and I was just dumbfounded that I never experienced anything like it before — five African women telling their stories and each of the women are so distinct from the other one. And it was so funny and also heart-breaking at times. It was just a very powerful story.”
Nyong’o on Making History:
“I’m very proud to be part of a milestone of a production that is all female…and to be a part of a production like none other that has been on Broadway and is also changing the narrative of what is possible on Broadway.”
