I saw Fences in 2010 and my friends and I were absolutely blown away. Will Fences, (with Denzel), ever come back to the Cort or any other theater in New York?

The play was truly moving. The performances was so real and believable that you got lost in their roles. Only Denzel and Viola could move me the way they did. Im looking into tickets to see the play again with my mom and mother-in-law.

I flew all the way from Bermuda to see the play Fences and of course Denzel on June 2, 2010. Denzel, Viola and the entire cast did a brillant job of mesmerizing me. I enjoyed the entire play from cast, to set to venue. Seeing Denzel in person was a treat and I expect he will do well at the Tony Awards. If I am able to get tickets for Fences I will see it again before it finishes; money well spent!

This is the best play I have ever seen. Denzel has talent on the screen and on stage. The entire cast was superb!!!!! Thanks for a great evening.

Saw this show on June 1st. I've always been a big Denzel fan but hadn't known he did live theatre. We were taken as a surprise by friends and it was the best surprise I've had for years. The tickets were worth every penny (or dollar). The entire cast were fantastic, the theatre was very intimate which made you feel as if you were almost part of the story and Denzel was just stunning. Very simple scenery but used to marvellous effect. My 18 year old daughter thoroughly enjoyed it too although I feel it would be too deep for most children. Would recommend it to all adults and if given the opportunity would perhaps consider another viewing.

This was an excellent production! The acting was incredible. I'm so glad I had the opportunity to see Denzel in the role. Our seats were excellent and provided us with such a great opportunity to see the wonderful set and lighting design. I do have one question..why does the Cort not have to comply with appropriate accomodations for the physically handicapped and/or challenged? This is required by law, and not having ramps or elevators to make it easier to get upstairs or go the the restrooms makes it difficult for seniors as well a those previously mentioned. I love the old theaters, but they need to comply to the law.
