Denzel Washington and Viola Davis are heading back to the stage where they will star in the Broadway revival of Fences.

Washington will portray the role of Troy Maxson, a middle-aged sanitation worker and sharecropper’s son living in 1950s Pittsburgh.  Davis will play his steadfast wife, Rose.

The 13-week limited engagement will play the Cort Theatre, with previews beginning April 14, and an opening set for April 26. Kenny Leon will direct the production.
