The A-list Hollywood actress is marshalling her fans to sign a petition that will see thespians earn better wages.
New York’s Broadway Theatre is the incubator of budding thespians wishing to make it big in Hollywood. A lot of actors and actresses who have starred in a number of Hollywood blockbusters started their journey at Broadway.
Lupita Nyong’o has also featured in a number of plays at Broadway, the most notable being ‘Eclipsed’; a 2015 play about five Liberian women and their tale of survival near the end of the Second Liberian Civil War.
The Kenyan actress has since come forth to reveal thespians starring on plays at Broadway earn ‘peanuts’; she says their salaries are below minimum wage.
“Did you know that Off-Broadway salaries are often below minimum wage?! Join me and sign this petition to show your support for higher wages! Everyone deserves a living wage!” Lupita Nyong’o captioned a video she was grumbling about poor pay.
