For Black Boys Who Have Considered Suicide When the Hue Gets Too Heavy Tickets - Garrick Theatre

Following three sold-out seasons, For Black Boys Who Have Considered Suicide When The Hue Gets Too Heavy is back in London’s West End in 2024 at the Garrick Theatre.

'I found a king in you and now I love me
I found a king in me and now I love you'

Fashion tips and father figures. African empires and illicit sex. Lost loves and jollof rice. Bad days and good days.

Six young Black men meet up for some group therapy and allow their hearts – and imaginations – to run wild.

Taking its inspiration from Ntozake Shange's ‘*For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide / When the Rainbow Is Enuf*’, For Black Boys... sits on the joyful threshold of fantasy and life's brutal realities: a world of music, storytelling, movement, and verse – where six young men clash and connect in a bid for survival.

After playing sold-out seasons at the Apollo Theatre, Royal Court Theatre, and New Diorama Theatre, Ryan Calais Cameron’s multi-award-winning, and Olivier-Award nominated *For Black Boys Who Considered Suicide When The Hue Gets Too Heavy* is back in the West End and will showcase for 9 weeks at the Garrick Theatre.

The Garrick Theatre is a medium size West End theatre which has a capacity of 735 seats. Studying the seating plan in detail before purchase is highly recommended as there are numerous support pillars and circle overhangs that restrict the view from many seats. Patrons will also often hear the rattle of the underground trains during productions as tube lines run directly below the theatre.

The best views in the theatre are in the Stalls and Dress Circle section and sitting between Row D and J in the Stalls offers an excellent and unrestricted view. The Dress Circle also offers clear and detailed views of the stage and is a brilliant vantage point although this does tend to be reflected in the ticket price.

The best budget seats for those looking to secure cheap For Black Boys tickets can be found towards the rear of the Stalls, where seats are regularly discounted due to the many support pillars and overhang from the Dress Circle. Value can also be found in the clear-view seats in the Upper Circle for a cheap alternative.

How Can I Book Cheap Tickets at the Garrick Theatre? 

The Garrick Theatre is not the largest venue in the West End and we do anticipate that tickets will be in big demand at weekends and during peak times. Having said that there is some opportunity to get some proper value in the cheaper sections of the theatre during off-peak weeks and for midweek performances. The midweek matinee is also a great opportunity to secure a bargain during performances where the understudy takes on the lead role.

Is Booking Tickets To Shows At The Garrick Theatre Online Cheaper Than From The Box Office? 

This will depend heavily on when you wish to see the show. If you are booking during peak periods or for weekend performances including Friday evenings then it could be cheaper to book tickets directly from the box office to avoid incurring booking fees from third-party agencies. When booking tickets for midweek performances, however, or during quieter off-peak weeks such as the weeks that follow school holidays then the opposite can often be the case as websites will often then be selling at pre-negotiated rates from the theatre enabling them to pass on any discounts they are receiving onto the consumer. For bargain hunters looking to book cheap or discount theatre tickets in London, it pays to be as flexible with dates as possible to ensure maximum value in the ticket price.

Should I Avoid Booking Tickets To Garrick Theatre That Have A Restricted View? 

There are quite a few seats that feature restrictions to the view in the Garrick Theatre but not all tickets that feature a restriction should necessarily be avoided. There are three levels in the theatre – the stalls on the ground floor looking directly at the stage, the dress circle on the first floor, and the grand circle on the second floor looking down. Some seats in the stalls have a slight restriction with the view of the top of the stage being slightly obscured from the overhang of the dress circle from row N and beyond. The raking of the seats isn’t apparent up until row G, and this can sometimes cause a few issues with the sightline for the very front rows up to row E in some productions. In the dress circle, there is no obstruction from the overhang from the upper circle, but for those in the last row, the ceiling can feel a little low and possibly claustrophobic for some people. In the upper circle, there can be an issue with legroom in some seats and a slight obstruction from the railing at the front but this should always be reflected in the price of the ticket and can offer big savings during peak performances.

It is always highly recommended that you study the seating plan before booking tickets to ensure complete transparency and peace of mind over your purchase. All tickets that do feature any form of restriction should be marked as such.
