Danai Gurira, who plays the fearless Michonne on “The Walking Dead” and will appear in Marvel’s upcoming “Black Panther,” was at Synchronicity Theatre in Midtown on Sunday for the closing-night performance of her acclaimed play “Eclipsed.”

The play has been nominated for six Tony Awards. The plot: “Caught in the grips of civil war, five Liberian women struggle to negotiate power, protection and peace in this stunning tale of hope and resilience.”

Gurira, who played Afeni Shakur in the locally filmed Tupac Shakur biopic “All Eyez on Me,” will reprise her “Black Panther” role as Okoye in the two “Avengers” movies filming this summer.
