Casting Announced For Broadway Revival Of Fences

I can't tell you how excited I am about the new Broadway revival of August Wilson's Fences. Now as much as I love his plays the main reason I want to see the show is because it features one of my favorite actor's of all time. I am talking about the one,the only,two time Academy Award winner.....Mr. Denzel Washington. Last seen on Broadway in 2005 in a production of Julious Casear in 2005 returns to the stage this Spring to star in one of August Wilson's most herald plays.

The show which first opened on Broadway in 1987 won the Tony Award for Best Play as well as the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. It was also announced this week that Tony Award and Academy Award nominee Viola Davis(Doubt) will co-star. Directing the show is Kenny Leon(Raisin In The Sun,Gem of the Ocean).

The show is set to begin previews on April 14 with an official set for April 26. Please note that is is a limited engagement only running 13 weeks. Tickets are expected to go on sale in early March. As with Mr. Washington's last show expect tickets to go very fast. Until next time theatre fans.
