Monday was the opening night for August Wilson’s “Fences” on Broadway at the Cort Theatre starring Denzel Washington and Viola Davis. “Fences” is probably one of my favorite plays and I absolutely love teaching this play. Many critics felt August Wilson’s plays were “simple,” but they were not used to someone writing about the struggles of African-Americans and so they did not understand. This play is definitely a classic. Set in the late 1950s many of you will be able to connect with the struggles and triumphs of the Maxson Family. Here are some photos from opening night.
