It started off as the little off-Broadway play that could. But now Elipse—the play with an all-female, all-black cast that features Academy Award winner Lupita Nyong’o—is on Broadway and getting the attention it deserves.
The cast appeared on the cover of Uptown magazine looking stunning. Gurira—one of the play’s writers—and actresses Saycon Sengbloh, Pascale Armand, Akosua Busia, Zainab Jah and Nyong’o all don natural hairstyles and chocolate complexions.
Nyong’o explained that she was drawn to the role because of how unprecedented the points of view are.
