Denzel Washington shooting for the 'Fences' on Broadway

DenzelLike so many of his Hollywood counterparts recently, Denzel Washington is headed for Broadway. He'll star in a revival of August Wilson's "Fences," Culture Monster reports.

The show opens in April and will run only through July.

We're excited!

With the likes of Scarlett Johansson, Daniel Craig, Hugh Jackman, Abigail Breslin and Jude Law hanging out in New York, Broadway can make some of those ads like Macy's runs, where all the famous people show up in the department store after hours and have dinner together and act as if they're great friends.

Except it would be in a theater. And they'd all probably still be in way-heavy stage makeup. And some people might just send their understudies because, really, who wants to keep hanging out in the theater that late at night, especially after leaving it all onstage?

Maybe it would be a better idea if we were talking about the Broadway.

Alas, we date ourselves.
