The revival of August Wilson's 1983 Pulitzer Prize winning play, Fences, starring Denzel Washington and Viola Davis, opened last night at Broadway's Cort Theatre and the reviews are in. This play is often considered one of Wilson's best and this revival has not disappointed. The production is, according to the reviews I've read, stunning and the acting is top notch. Both Denzel Washington and Viola Davis are said to be riveting and the supporting actors don't detract. Tony nominations in those three places is seeming more and more likely.
