Dyllón Burnside is to make his London stage debut in BLACK SUPERHERO which will begin previews at the Royal Court Theatre on March 14th, ahead of an official opening night on March 21st, and performances set to run until April 29th. Tickets to BLACK SUPERHERO are available to book online.
The plot of BLACK SUPERHERO follows the fortunes of a man whose life is spiraling out of control, in a time where press material states: “our idols are Kings and our superheroes Gods.”
The Emmy-Award-winning actor Dyllón Burnside will play the title character and Daniel Evans will direct playwright Danny Lee Wynter, alongside Eloka Ivo, Ben Allen, Rochenda Sandall, Dominic Holmes, and Ako Mitchel.
Wynter commented on the production, stating: “I feel lucky to have this extraordinarily accomplished group of artists come together to tell this story about a messy, funny, complicated, often savage group of queer friends who drive a man towards his journey of healing and self-acceptance. I wanted to write a big, epic story that asks difficult questions about who and where we are… I have tried to present his myriad flaws, his fears, his sensuality, and his intimate desires. To celebrate him, and those like him, by ultimately allowing him to own all of it; by becoming the hero of his own story”.
The creative team behind the show features sound design by Tingying Dong, set design by Joanna Scotcher, costume design by Kinnetia Isidore, and lighting design by Ryan Day.
Booking & Theatre Info For BLACK SUPERHERO
The Royal Court Theatre is a small off-West End venue located on Sloane Square with a capacity of 389 seats and has three levels compromising of the larger Jerwood Theatre Downstairs and the slightly more intimate Jerwood Theatre Upstairs. There is flexible seating to suit each production however, as it is a small venue, there are generally very good views of the stage throughout the auditorium.
The best seats are in the Stalls which have a decent rake and offer great views of the stage, although the intimate auditorium allows for close-up views wherever you are sat. The Circle is also a great place to sit for a clear overall view of the stage from an elevated position.
Patrons on a budget or just looking to book cheap Black Superhero tickets can find good value either in the Balcony on the second floor, or the Slips in the Circle where tickets are moderately priced and offer a clear view of the stage.
