NEW YORK (AP) Oscar-winner Lupita Nyong'o will make the leap to Broadway this winter, bringing the harrowing play "Eclipsed" to the Great White Way.

The play by Danai Gurira about how some women might endure captivity and regular rape in squalid, harrowing conditions is currently in the middle of a sold-out run downtown at The Public Theater. It closes there Nov. 29.

It then jumps to the Golden Theatre, with previews beginning Feb. 23.

Nyong'o ("12 Years A Slave") portrays a teenager who finds herself enslaved in a rebel compound during a bloody civil war in 2003 Liberia. The playright is also an actress, who portrays Michonne on AMC's hit series "The Walking Dead."
