Fences
Directed by Kenny Leon, this Broadway revival of August Wilson's 'Fences' stars two-time Academy Award winner Denzel Washington and Academy Award nominee and Tony Award winner Viola Davis in a story set in 1950s Pittsburgh. The drama follows Troy Maxson (Washington), a former baseball player in the Negro League, who is now reduced to collecting trash. Troy must deal with his headstrong football-player son who has a chance to go much further than he did, as well as his wife, Rose (Davis), who re-evaluates their marriage when Troy comes home with the baby he fathered with another woman. Early word is that Washington is a shoo-in for a Tony Award.
