How Lupita celebrated her 33rd birthday

Kenyan actress Lupita Nyong’o on Tuesday celebrated her 33rd birthday at the theatre with her colleagues.

Ms Nyong’o took a break from her busy schedule on Wednesday evening to post a photo of her birthday gift on social media.

The academy award winner captioned the photo, “Yesterday’s birthday celebration at the theater. Thank you Eclipsed on Broadway cast and crew for making merry with one of my favorite things: #macaroons! And thank you to my entire online community for the messages and tributes.”

Ms Nyong’o has been the lead cast of the play Eclipsed which is set in Liberia during the civil war.

The play is set to open on Broadway theatre on Sunday after Lupita’s February debut on Broadway which saw the start of previews.

It was written by Zimbabwean-American playwright and Walking Dead actress, Danai Gurira.

Eclipsed centers on a group of women who are kept captive by a rebel leader in war-torn Liberia.

It stars other talented actresses; Saycon Sengbloh, Pascale Armand, Akosua Busia and Zainab Jah.
