Following a critically acclaimed run at the Public Theater, Eclipsed has moved uptown to the John Golden Theatre. Its arrival marks Gurira's Broadway debut as a playwright (she appeared as an actor in the 2009 revival of Joe Turner's Come and Gone). At the same time, her new comedy, Familiar, has audiences rolling in the aisles at Playwrights Horizons. Gurira seems to be having a well-deserved moment right now. Few American playwrights are as versatile and thought-provoking, as this excellent production proves that at every turn.

Under the bright lights of Broadway, where escapist fare or genteel revivals most often thrive, Ms. Gurira’s play, directed with clarity and force by Liesl Tommy, reminds us of something profoundly important, and perhaps too easily forgotten amid our own country’s continuing racial troubles: African lives matter.

-----New York Times
Lupita Nyong’o spends the opening moments of “Eclipsed” hidden from sight. As soon as this “12 Years a Slave” Oscar winner is exposed, however, there’s no concealing the fact that she is a natural in her Broadway debut — powerful, poignant, thoroughly convincing as a 15-year-old girl surviving any way she can during wartime in Africa. It’s a common lament that there are no good roles for women. But Danai Gurira, a playwright and actress known as Michonne on “The Walking Dead,” has packed this harrowing, albeit sometimes heavy-handed, 2008 drama with five of them.
