Lupita Nyong'o & Angela Bassett Reunite to Watch a Broadway Show Together!

Lupita Nyong’o and Angela Bassett pose together backstage following a performance of the Broadway play Children of a Lesser God on Sunday (April 1) at Studio 54 in New York City.

The Black Panther co-stars spent their Easter Sunday together watching the performance and they went backstage to greet actors Joshua Jackson and Lauren Ridloff, as well as director Kenny Leon.

“The Queen Mother and I went to see Kenny Leon’s Broadway play, CHILDREN OF A LESSER GOD. It was EXQUISITE!! Lauren Ridloff is luminous – you cannot take your eyes off her, Joshua Jackson is a straight up BAWSS and the rest of the cast is dizzyingly talented and exact. The chemistry in the love story produces solid matter that you will want to snack on. And the costumes by Dede Ayite are poetry,” Lupita wrote in her rave review on Instagram.

Angela Bassett Talks 'Real Life' Wakanda & '9-1-1' on 'The Late Show'

Angela Bassett took to Stephen Colbert‘s couch on The Late Show last night (March 13) and talked all about her experience with the “real” Wakanda, and what it took for her to get into acting.

“I’ve been asking for it,” the 59-year-old actress expressed about playing a Queen in her hit film Black Panther.

“People always ask you about what kind of role you want to play and I’ve always jokingly said, ‘I want to play a Queen’. Never thinking that I would and here it is, realized,” Angela told Stephen.

Angela also shares some secrets about the mysterious African nation Wakanda and talks about her role in 9-1-1, her new series about an LAPD sergeant as she responds to emergency situations – hence the title of the show.
