Chalk, Hornsby among those joining cast
Chris Chalk, Stephen McKinley Henderson, Russell Hornsby and Mykelti Williamson will join the cast of the upcoming Broadway revival of August Wilson’s “Fences.”
Headlined by Denzel Washington and Viola Davis, Kenny Leon’s production begins previews April 14 for an April 26 opening at the Cort Theater.
Chalk appeared last season in Pulitzer winner “Ruined.” Henderson previously played Broadway in Wilson’s “King Hedley II” and “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom.” Hornsby (“In Treatment”), Williamson (“Forrest Gump”) and Chalk all will make their Rialto debuts in “Fences.”
Carole Shorenstein Hays and Scott Rudin produce the revival.
