August Wilson’s play “Fences” is a must-see. The play brings an energy on stage that’s palpable, never disappoints. The cast of “Fences” give a riveting performance, and Lester Purry’s imposing presence fills the stage with the delivery of his lines that have both comedy and drama in it.

Palm Beach Dramaworks never disappoints with the choices it makes in productions, whether it’s a comedy, musical or drama, like in this case. The craftsmanship of the set is more than you would expect from a regional theatre. But it is dramas like “Fences” that make PBDW’s tagline “theatre to think about” glimmer like a neon sign on Broadway. To read the rest of the article, visit West Palm Beach Magazine.
