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?

5.0 star rating Melissa Jesurum from NY


I was fortunate enough to see my favorite actor in person, on stage and he did not disappoint for one minute. The rest of the cast was superb as well but I must point out that Viola Davis was gripping, she made me cry....I felt everything her character felt. I would recommend this play for anyone and especially those that don't think it can be entertaining to go to the Theatre, this play definitely suspends your disbelief!

Denzel Washington is my all time favorite actor. I went to see Fences on 5/15. This was my second time seeing Denzel in a broadway play. As in his movies and previous plays, he is and will always be magnificent. I did not want the play to end. It is emotional and funny. It was so close to home for me and others. I have to say everyone played their part extremely well. I feel blessed to have been able to be in the company of Denzel and Viola to see this play. I am planning on seeing it again. I feel there is a message in this play for all. I have told many, please purchase a ticket to see this play. Thank you Denzel.

Wow! I have always been a Denzel fan, his performance in this play was out of sight... Ms. Davis and the supporting cast was beyond description... This is a must see play... It is well deserving of its 10 Tony award nominations!

I haven't seen the play yet and I already know it is 5+ STARS because DENZEL IS IN IT! I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE IT. I'M ON MY WAY !!! I LOVE DENZEL!!!

5.0 star rating Renee M from Bermuda


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 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.
