Fences, August Wilson's most popular play, opened on Broadway in 1987 with James Earl Jones in the starring role. It ran for 525 performances, winning the New York Drama Critics Circle Award, the Tony Award for best play, and Mr. Wilson's first of two Pulitzer Prizes. Clive Barnes of the New York Post called it "the strongest, most passionate American dramatic writing since Tennessee Williams Fences gave me one of the richest experiences I have ever had in the theater."
The Princeton University Glee Club demonstrated why it is one of the better collegiate choruses in the area on Saturday night with an ambitious program in Richardson Auditorium. For this concert, conductor Richard Tang Yuk selected works of only two composers, but these were composers whose music has been challenging performers for decades.
