Mr. Washington and Ms. Davis prove that lovers don't have to be as young and star-crossed as Romeo and Juliet to generate shiver-making heat and pathos.

What a performance,

I went to see Fences last night and I was blown away. Denzel's performance was Stellar. This actor gives his all to every project I have ever seen. It was great seeing him on Broadway. The cast was on there A GAME. Please go and see this Play; you will have no regrets. I am going to see at least two more times.

 

Wishing the cast best wishes; you rocked the house.

wow,

I was fortunate enough to see the invited dress rehearsal last night and this production is absolutely amazing. I could not believe how good Denzel and Vila were...brilliant ! To be fair, every performance on that stage was equally excellent. The set was gorgeous and played it's own role in this intimate story very well. This was also my first August Wilson play, and I am speechless. I have never experienced so many emotions, so quickly, and related to them on so many levels. FENCES grabbed hold of me and still hasn't let go.

 

I would jump at the chance to see this performance again, but being a limited engagement and the fact that it is sooooo gooooood, i think tickets will be hard to come by. Go see it if you can.

Fences,
Apr 16, 2010
reviewer: from New York
I saw the preview of the play Fences with Denzel Washington. It was absolutely brilliant! August Wilson was an intelligent playwright who had such a great way of telling a story. I was spell bound. I did not want it to end. All of the cast were sensational. Hurry and buy your tickets you will be very sorry if you miss this play.

 

My seats were great.
