Frequently Asked Questions: The Second Woman

How do I get tickets?

A limited number of timed-entry tickets tickets will be sold in advance for entry at 5pm and midnight on Friday, October 18, and 4am and 8am on Saturday, October 19. Additional tickets will be sold at the venue continuously throughout the 24-hour run via standby line; audience members will be admitted on a rolling basis as space becomes available. Once admitted, audience members can stay as long as they like; all tickets include free re-entry.

Can I share my ticket with a friend?

Please note, tickets to The Second Woman cannot be shared. Each ticket, while valid for multiple entries, can only be used by one individual.

How long can I stay?

Stay for 15 minutes or 15 hours, drop in once or return to see more—the choice is yours.

Are there any breaks in the performance?

Actors take a brief break every two hours starting at 7pm. The breaks will be every two hours thereafter throughout the 24-hour run.

What if I need to leave or go to the restroom?

You won’t have to wait to re-enter after using the restroom. However, if you need to leave the building, you will need to get back on the standby line. You do not have to buy another ticket—your ticket covers the cost of unlimited re-entry.

Will there be food available at the BAM Fisher?

Snacks, wine, and beer will be available for sale throughout the 24-hour run except from 2 to 6am. Coffee, tea, and water will be available free of charge from 2 to 6am. Outside food is not permitted in the theater, but audience members can exit the theater to eat and drink in the local area. If you do exit, you will have to return to the standby line if the theater is at capacity but you don’t have to buy another ticket.

Are food and beverages permitted inside the theater?

All beverages in bottles, in-theater cups, and containers with lids will be permitted inside the theater. Due to the durational nature of this performance, we are relaxing our BAM in-theater cup rule for The Second Woman only.

How long should I expect to wait? When should I arrive to minimize wait time?

We expect the shortest wait times, based on previous performances of The Second Woman, to be between midnight and 6am and the longest wait times to be between 5 and 9pm on Friday and 1 and 5pm on Saturday. We will be posting expected wait times frequently on Twitter (@BAM_Brooklyn) throughout the performance.

What if I have a physical need or disability that makes it difficult for me to stand in line?

We are able to accommodate audience members with a disability. When you arrive, please find a BAM usher who will help you find seating and maintain your position in line.

Is there a coat check?


Will I be able to charge my phone?

We will have a small number of outlets available. Devices must be attended at all times.
