The 32-year-old Oscar winning actress will reprise her role in the Broadway production, which is set to begin previews in February at the Golden Theater with an official opening of March 6.
The Walking Dead‘s Danai Gurira wrote the script for the play.
“Broadway will be better for having ‘Eclipsed’ on it, and I hope it will break a barrier that will stay broken, if it proves that shows like this can make it on Broadway,” Oskar Eustis, the artistic director of the Public Theater (where the show is currently running), said in a statement. “It’s an incredibly emotional play, and by the end very deeply touching and harrowing, and yet Danai has written it so beautifully it ultimately feels life-affirming, about how women in horrible circumstances are able to find their own agency.”
