Fences Tickets and Show Schedule
Wed & Sat 2pm
Wed through Sat 8Ppm
Fences tickets have rapidly become one of the most sought after on Broadway and for many good reasons. The play by August Wilson won a 1987 Pulitzer Prize , Tony Award for Best Play, Stars Denzel Washington and is a limited engagement which has people rushing to the Cort Theatre before the production is much too soon taken away.
Denzel Washington plays the character of Troy Maxson, a Pittsburgh garbage collector who played in the Negro leagues with success. Denzel delivers a genuine performance which beautifully embodies all the nuances of Maxon's character, which include hard-working, headstrong and unreasonable to name a few. The character is complex to say the least but Denzel can bring believability to the man he is portraying and that is vital for the depth and emotion of this heartfelt and moving play. The acting is met with nothing less than heart thumping cheers from the audience each performance. While many shows have seen a lack of ticket sales Fences tickets have been selling out each week at the box office.
"Fences is one part of August Wilson’s master life long achievement referred to as the "Pittsburgh Cycle". The work includes ten plays covering the 20th century history of the African-American experience. Each play covers a specific character of an important time period (each play covers a decade) and each play has the character in an significant place of the period being captured. Fences is only the second play of the "cycle" and many would debate far from the best play in the bundle, yet much of Mr. Wilson's writing genius is ever present with each line being delivered to the audience.
For those who have seen some of the other plays in the "Pittsburgh Cycle" getting Fences tickets will not be a disappointment. For those who want to catch a glimpse on what the buzz is about then and witness a great Broadway performance by Denzel Washington as he brings Troy Maxson's character to life on the stage you are sure to leave without regrets. The limited-engagement for the show means that it will be closed at the Cort Theatre on July 11, 2010, which is already causing most performances to sell out. While getting tickets from the box office will keep Fences tickets around $60.00 to a little over $100.00 per ticket expect to pay much more if the show time you need has sold out.
