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!

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 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

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.

5.0 star rating Thomas 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.

5.0 star rating Donald Martin from NYC


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.
