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!

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!

5.0 star rating Terry Brigman from Black Mountain, NC, USA


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!

5.0 star rating Margaret Massey from Peterborough, England


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.

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 James from New Jersey


I dont have words after seeing this play, and I may never want to see a play again after this, because I am so floored by what I saw, that I dont think another play can match up to what I just experienced. Cried and laughed; the cast was just amazing - and Denzel is the Man!!! I could not take my eyes off of him and his work. I am still reeling inside. GO SEE THIS WHILE YOU CAN!!!

5.0 star rating Joanna Weiss from New York, NY


I saw this with a friend on the 10th of June. He was as always amazing. Unbelievable performance. Remembering all the lines non-stop with great emotion were deservedly award winning. Go Denzel!
