Denzel Washington’s adaptation of August Wilson’s “Fences,” has set an initial limited theatrical opening in New York and Los Angeles on December 16, followed by a nationwide roll-out on December 25, Christmas Day.

Washington and Davis are reprising the roles they played in the Broadway revival of “Fences” that was directed by Kenny Leon, both giving strong performances that would earn them the highest honor in the theatre world, the Tony Award for Best Actor and Best Actress in a Play. Could they be in contention for similar honors (Best Actor and Best Actress Academy Awards) in 2017?  There is certainly a possibility of that happening given the talent in front of and behind the screen (including the man who created the source material, the late August Wilson).
