Item Description

This bear was modeled after The Girl, portrayed by Lupita Nyong'o, in Broadway’s Tony Award-nominated play Eclipsed. The bear's ensemble features a hand-tied wig, a miniature replica of the distressed blue Rugrats T-shirt and a dirtied taupe linen skirt. Her stand is overlaid with original fabric from another costume Ms. Nyong'o wears in the show.

The bear comes autographed under each paw by costume designer Clint Ramos and Ms. Nyong'o. The bear also has an audio feature in the right paw with a personalized message from Ms. Nyong'o.

The winner also will receive two VIP house seat tickets to see one of Eclipsed’s final performances June 16-18, and a special backstage meet-and-greet immediately after the show with Ms. Nyong'o.

Each bear included in this auction was a labor of love made by Wardrobe Supervisor Kay Grunder, Hair and Makeup Supervisor Sarah Jordan and Dresser Liz Lee, with assistance by Adeola Role, understudy to Rita and Helena, and Joniece Abbott-Pratt, understudy to Bessie and Maima.

Special thanks to Clint Ramos for his beautiful costume designs, 101 Productions for all its support and Stephen Byrd and Alia Jones-Harvey for bringing Eclipsed to Broadway.
