Sophia Bush Discusses the Importance of Broadway's 'Eclipsed'
Sophia Bush carries an iced beverage while running errands on Saturday afternoon (May 21) in Los Angeles.
The 33-year-old actress was seen in a turtleneck sweater while stepping out the day before.
Sophia was in New York City last week and took in a performance of the new Broadway play Eclipsed, about the story of five extraordinary women brought together by upheaval in their homeland of Liberia.
“The importance of @eclipsedbway cannot be overstated. The beauty of this play that personalizes, and personifies, the stories of women in a war-torn region, highlighting the #BringBackOurGirls abduction, reminding audiences that 219 girls from that school group are still held captive by Boko Haram, is something I fear I can’t adequately describe,” Sophia wrote on Instagram. “The women up on that stage are pouring their hearts out every night. Giving performances that are awe-inspiring, thought provoking, and remind both your head and your heart that we humans are all the same. That girls deserve to pursue their dreams. To be educated. To be doctors. Constitutional lawyers. Whatever their hearts desire. That no child should be forced to be a soldier, or a sex slave. That we must not allow them to be eclipsed by new news cycles and the next story.”
“These girls are our girls. They are valued. They are worthy. We must remember them. Eclipse dedicates each performance to the girls. Every night two of their names are read aloud and repeated aloud by a theatre full of audience members. Tonight’s girls are Patience Jacob and Awa Abughe. Say their names with me. They are you. They are me. We have to change this world for women y’all. We must #KnowHerName,” Sophia added.
