While 'Walking Dead' fans were tuning in to watch Michonne chop a few zombies in half last Sunday, Michonne actress Danai Gurira’s play 'Eclipsed' was debuting on Broadway. Guria wields both the pen and the sword, acting and writing.
Although the holiday season can be less-than lucrative for Broadway, 2015 ended on a high note for the Great White Way. Wicked alone grossed nearly $3 million dollars during Christmas week and, overall, Broadway grossed over $43 million dollars the following week. This marks a .68% jump from last year and, now, a new production 'The Humans, Hughie and The Crucible' is making their debut on Broadway in 2016.
Oscar-winning actress, Lupito Nyongo, will make her New York stage debut this fall appearing in the Public Theater's new war drama, "Eclipsed."
