Broadway Revival Of Fences Now On Sale

Those of you have read my previous blogs know how excited I am about seeing the new production of Fences. Now while I have always enjoyed the work of August Wilson the main reason I want to see the show is because my favorite actor is starring in the show. You may have heard of him. Two-time Academy Award winner Mr. Denzel Washington.

Now besides being a big fan of his screen work I had the pleasure of seeing him five years ago in Julius Caesar on Broadway. Now while I enjoyed his performance I think the lead role of Troy Maxson will be more well suited for him. The role of Troy Maxson was portrayed by James Earl Jones in the original 1987 production for which he won the Tony Award for Best Actor.

Looks like he has some big shoes to fill but if anyone can do it Denzel can. Sure I may be a little bias but there's no denying the man has the skills to get the job done. Be advised the show is only playing a limited run of thirteen weeks. Previews are set to begin on April 14 at the Cort Theatre with opening night scheduled for April 26.

By the way for those of you who have never been to the Cort Theatre it like most theatres on Broadway is very small. Although there are three levels(Orchestra,Mezzanine,and Balcony)it is less than 1100 seats. That means there is not a bad seat in the house. Get your tickets to see Fences on Broadway. Expect it to be a big contender at this year's Tony Awards.
