“Fences” Starring Denzel Washington and Viola Davis

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.
