The Broadway revival of August Wilson’s Fences with Denzel Washington and Viola Davis just notched its second million dollar week at the Cort Theatre. The gross last week was $1,002,750. That’s just under the $1,008,103.50 that Fences posted for the week of May 9, but it is a big number for a small theatre at a time when Tony Award voters are seeing it gratis. No previous show at the Cort had a $1 million week. Fences, which won the Outer Critics Circle for Best Revival and shared the Drama Desk prize, is up for 10 Tony Awards and has five weeks left to top its own record before ending its limited run July 11. Then, discussions to turn it into a film will begin in earnest.
