Actress, radio personality and author Alani Nicole Anthony — better known as La La — has joined the producing team of Eclipsed, the celebrated drama that will mark the Broadway debut of Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o. The drama, by playwright-actress Danai Gurira (Michonne on AMC’s The Walking Dead), was presented earlier this season at the Public Theater, where critical acclaim and sold-out houses led to the Broadway move. The play, set in the violent chaos of the Liberian civil war, is staged on Broadway, as it was at the Public, by Liesl Tommy. Eclipsed is slated to begin previews February 23 at the Shubert Organization’s John Golden Theatre and open on March 6, with a limited run through June 19.
