Lupita Nyong’o will be making her New York stage debut off-Broadway in the Public Theater’s new drama Eclipsed, written by The Walking Dead actress Danai Gurira.
“Danai Gurira has written a brilliant play, ripped from the headlines, that looks at the terrible conflicts in post-colonial Africa with an eye that is both incisive and deeply compassionate,” Artistic Director Oskar Eustis said in a statement. “A feminist reading of the Liberian Civil War, a war that was ended by women, Eclipsed is both heart-breaking and profoundly life-affirming. We are delighted to welcome the extraordinary Lupita Nyong’o to The Public in this vitally important play.”
The show is set to begin on September 29 and run through November 8.
Rose Byrne tries to beat the sweltering heat in a maxi dress while walking around the East Village on Wednesday afternoon (July 29) in New York City.
The 36-year-old Australian actress was joined by her boyfriend Bobby Cannavale, with whom she held hands.
Rose recently revealed her daily makeup routine.
“Growing up, my mum never wore a lot of makeup, she was very natural. However, it’s important to take care of yourself and it doesn’t hurt to put on a bit of lipstick,” Rose told Violet Grey. “I discovered I was allergic to all these chemicals and we put together a very strict bible of all the products I could use. I actually wear makeup everyday. I use a NARS tinted moisturizer. I love those Fresh lip stains. I wear them religiously. They are terrific in a berry color. I try to put on a hat if I can.”

Raven-Symone is opening up about being fat shamed on the set of The Cosby Show when she was only 7 years old. "I remember not being able to have the bagel or anything at [craft services] - we call it crafty - where it's just a table of food ready for you to eat whenever you want," the former child star recalled. "And I remember people were like, 'You can't eat that. You're getting fat." Watch the clip here...
Trevor Noah is all smiles while speaking to the press at his The Daily Show with Trevor Noah panel during Viacom Networks portion of the 2015 Summer TCA Tour on Wednesday (July 29) at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif.
Also in attendance were Rachel Brosnahan and John Benjamin Hickey onstage during their Manhattan panel discussion for the WGN America portion, as well as director Angela Bassett for her Breakthrough panel discussion at the National Geographic Channel portion.
Trevor, 31, opened up to reporters about what changes we can expect from The Daily Show.
“In terms of the show, physically, we are obviously changing the set a tiny bit,” Noah expressed (via IGN). “We still want the show to be recognized as The Daily Show because that’s what it still is. In terms of content on the show, I guess we’re still dealing with the same issues. The issues are not really changing in America and in the world, so really it’s just a different angle that we are looking at things from, and it’s my angle, really, but the show still has its voice. It’s just that I’m at the helm taking things in a slightly different direction but still trying to get to the same end place.”
