Denzel Washington returns to Broadway

| Leave a comment

NEW YORK, April 25 (UPI) — Hollywood actor Denzel Washington says he started thinking about his next Broadway project soon after wrapping up his run in “Julius Caesar” five years ago.

The double Oscar-winning star of the films “Glory,” “Philadelphia,” “Malcolm X,” “The Hurricane,” “Training Day,” “Inside Man” and “American Gangster” returned to the New York stage this month when he began previews in the Broadway revival of the late August Wilson’s drama “Fences” at the Cort Theatre. The production co-stars Viola Davis, Chris Chalk, Russell Hornsby, Mykelti Williamson and Stephen McKinley Henderson, and is scheduled to run through July 11.

“(Producer) Scott Rudin actually came to me with the screenplay (for a film adaptation of ‘Fences’). I think it was the only screenplay August wrote of his own plays and Scott asked me: ‘Whatever you want to do. Do you want to direct it? Act in it? Produce it?’ So, I read it,” Washington told UPI at Sardi’s restaurant in Manhattan recently. “Then I went and read the play and cried and laughed, and thought this is just a great, great play. And I went back to Scott and I said, ”OK, but I want to do the play.’ And he said, ‘We’ll do it on Broadway,’ and I said, ‘Yeah.’ And here we are.”

So, does that mean a “Fences” movie might follow the show’s limited engagement?

“Maybe. Nothing’s in stone at all. There’s nothing at this point but a script,” Washington said.

Despite his fame and success in Hollywood, the 55-year-old Mount Vernon, N.Y., native said he relishes getting back to the stage in the Big Apple because it allows him to exercise different acting muscles while being part of an ensemble.

“What I love about theater and what I love about it now, given the position I’m in, is that it gives me the chance to just be one of the guys. I’m another member of the cast,” Washington said.

“I have a role to play,” he added. “This is what I love; this is how I started as an actor, in the theater right up the block at Lincoln Center and when I left New York in 1982, I was doing a Pulitzer Prize-winning play. I had just done ‘When the Chickens Came Home to Roost’ and I followed that up with ‘A Soldier’s Play,’ which won the Pulitzer Prize and I left to go to Los Angeles to do what I thought was a 13-week job called ‘St. Elsewhere.’ Four kids, 20-whatever years later, I started working my way back. I never really felt Los Angeles was my home; New York’s my home. Now we have a home here. My children are getting to an age where I could come back. I couldn’t do eight shows a week (when they were younger) because I couldn’t get home to Los Angeles. … The kids were raised there, their friends are there, so I didn’t want to uproot them. So starting five years ago with ‘Julius Caesar’ and I’m here now and I plan to be here more and more, and do more and more plays.”

Wilson died of cancer at age 60 in 2005. Cast members and Kenny Leon, the director of “Fences,” said they feel the spirit of the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of “Joe Turner’s Come and Gone,” “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom,” “Two Trains Running” and “King Hedley II” in the theater as they work.

“He is (present),” Washington acknowledged. “He lives on forever as long as there are actors or people to speak his words, he lives on forever.”

For the actor, the opportunity to perform in a Wilson work is one to treasure.

“Very rarely do you get to interpret the work of a master, a grand master,” Washington said. “And he is one. He is Eugene O’Neill, he is Tennessee Williams, Arthur Miller. This is a masterpiece. I’ve been around. I’ve read a lot of plays and screenplays. He’s as good as anybody I’ve ever read or seen. So to get that opportunity and knowing he’s gone and, I, fortunately, got the chance to meet him (before he died). You can feel it. His plays are spiritual. They’re specific about this African-American family, but the themes are universal — the husband-wife relationship, the bitterness over not being successful in life, the dreams deferred, father-and-son relationships. All those themes — black, white, blue, green, or yellow — we all relate to them.”

Stop Trying to Escape!! – Daily Word April 22, 2010

Good morning my good folks! Today’s Daily Word is dedicated to escaping reality! Fat shout to my twitter folk @Khaotik for the assist!

The only way to fix an issue is to confront it head on!! Life trials and tribulations are here so that we can become stronger not weaker!! Trying to escape will only weaken our ability to solve problems and make us more dependant on our vice!!

Time to take your power back!!

Updated 11:17 AM CDT, Tue, Apr 13, 2010

A Gary, Indiana native will make history next month as the first black valedictorian from the University of Notre Dame.

Katie Washington, 21, is a biology major and minor in Catholic social teaching with a 4.0 GPA.

“I am humbled,” said Washington to the Northwest Indiana Times. “I am in a mode of gratitude and thanksgiving right now.”

University officials said they couldn’t recall ever having a black valedictorian, and don’t keep record of their race.

The valedictorian has been accepted to five schools, including Harvard, but she plans to pursue a joint M.D./Ph.D. at Johns Hopkins University, according to nwitimes.com.

“Katie works so hard,” Washington’s mother Jean Tomlin said. “I told her when she went to Notre Dame, ‘You are representing your family, your church and the city of Gary. Make us proud.'”

She has definitely made her family proud and is following in their footsteps. Her father is a doctor, her mother and sister are nurses, one brother is completing his residency and another brother who works for British Petroleum.

“I have had so much support, people who really wanted to see that I reached my full potential,” Washington told nwitimes.com. “They all had my best interest at heart.”

Washington will address the class of 2010 at commencement on May 16.

Hello! Good Morning! and welcome to a new chance to do it better!! Today’s Daily Word is dedicated to following that little voice inside. One of the strangest things about success is that when it’s all said and done and you are doing what you ought to be doing you will look back and realize that life had been pointing you in that direction all along. You know more than you think you do and the sooner you realize that fact the sooner you can enjoy your happiness!! Stop fighting that little voice in your head that is trying to guide you!! Call it intuition or call it your gut feeling but whatever you call it, it will never steer you wrong! Without self-trust success will become more difficult to attain!! Stop fighting it!! You know best whats good for you!! Enjoy the week! Let’s Make it Great!!

Good morning la familia!! Welcome to the hump day!! Today’s Daily Word is dedicated to staying busy!! I said this once before and I will say it again: Idle time will get you into idle mess!! If you are going through any trials and tribulations your best remedy is to stay busy. If you are feeling stagnate without a direction on which way to go; the remedy is to stay busy. If you are having negative thoughts about your progress and where you think you should be…….. STAY BUSY!!  Action is the best remedy for all of those symptoms! Action cures stress, indecisiveness and also gets rid of fear!! Get Busy! Keep Working!! Stay on your grind!! Even if you don’t have the answers now by keeping yourself occupied your brain will give you the answers you’ve been looking for! Don’t let idleness, and stress win!! Get to work!! Grind Hard and when that doesn’t work Grind Harder!!!
