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.

5.0 star rating Tony Alfaro from New Boston, MI


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.

5.0 star rating Mickey Rodriguez from Warwick, NY


I went to the April 23rd showing, and I can say without a doubt that Denzel Washington's portrayl of Troy Maxson was engrossing. I laughed and I cried. Viola Davis and the cast are outstanding. I loved it so much, I will see it again.

I went to see the play on Sun. afternoon. I had heard of Fences as well as other August Wilson's work. This was the first I had ever seen live. It was an amazing journey. I was completely engrossed in each and every actors performance. The opportunity to see Denzel W. and Viola D. is a blessing and should not be missed. I must see it again! The actors were so gracious as they exited the theater, but nypd was just a bit too aggressive with the fans. My friend was actually manhandled by one of the officers. The stars were great about talking to us and posing for pics. I got great pics of Russell Hornsby and Stephen M. Henderson, unfortunately thanks to the NYPD I missed out on pics of Mr. Washington and Ms.Davis. Better luck next time. I hope that more of August Wilson's work is revived.

Claire from NY said stay away from this play because she sat next to a chatty or rude woman. Her entire post was about her experience with this one woman and some of the theater personnel. Claire, why did you then post that one should avoid this play if one wants to avoid impolite people? Does this woman that sat next to you go to EVERY performance? OR are you blatantly categorizing a large population of August Wilson fans (if you're missing what I'm saying, I mean black folk) as impolite. You should examine yourself and your blatant racism. It's a bad thing Claire. It's very bad.

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.

5.0 star rating Ide Cohen from Chicago, Illinois


Love August Wilson's plays and have read them all as well as seen most of them in Chicago. This was outstanding. Spellbinding throughout and well acted by Denzel. This is a must see while in New York! We were lucky enough to get the last seats in the last row of the theatre. No problem with the sightlines and no problem hearing and seeing the action. Don't worry about where you sit, just see it! Ide Cohen
