Got questions? We’ve got answers!
This FAQ is focused on logistical and practical details.
For information about content and the artists behind the show, please check out our “About the Show” page:
Do I have to run?
ENDURE is designed to be enjoyed at a walking pace. You will not be required to run, and are welcome to choose your own pace for the show. You will be required to be on your feet, periodically walking, for approximately 75 minutes.
Where is the meeting place for the show?
We will email you with detailed information the evening before your performance, including the exact meeting place. Be prepared to be at the south end of Central Park, near Columbus Circle, about 15 minutes before showtime. If you don’t receive something from us, double-check your spam/junk folder in your email. If there’s nothing there, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What if I’m late?
Please arrive 15 minutes early for the show. The performance will begin promptly at the published performance time. Due to the nature of the performance, latecomers can not be accommodated.
Why don’t you publish the meeting place on your website?
Due to the nature of theatre in public space, we may need to slightly adjust the meeting place based on changes within the park. We’re also following the guidelines from the Mayor’s Office to avoid encouraging large congregations in public areas.
What are your Covid-19 safety protocols?
All of our crew will remain masked for the performance. Our performers are fully vaccinated and will not be masked. We ask that you remain masked and maintain 6 feet of distance from your fellow audience members for the duration of the show. If you have proof of vaccination, you are not required to wear your mask. (Valid proof of vaccination is an Excelsior pass or vaccination card with a name that matches your ID.) The audio device and provided headphones will be sanitized prior to each performance. All audience members will be asked to sign a waiver prior to attending the show.
Is there a bag or coat check?
There is no bag or coat check available, so please travel light.
How long is the show?
You will be required to be on your feet, periodically walking, for approximately 75 minutes.
What should I bring/wear?
Please wear comfortable clothing and closed-toe shoes. Bring water, sunscreen, and bug spray. Be prepared to be outdoors throughout the performance. The show travels through varied terrain, including some trails and off-road areas.
Are there any content warnings?
The show includes suicidal thoughts and mild sexual content. Endure is not for children under 16.
I didn’t receive a confirmation for my ticket.
Double-check your spam/junk folder in your email. If there’s nothing there, please reach out to us at email@example.com.
I’m confused about the audio players.
ENDURE is a physical performance accompanied by an audio track: a monologue set to music. Audiences will be issued a listening device at the start line, which must be returned at the completion of the performance.
Can I bring my own headphones?
If you prefer to bring your own headphones, please bring ones using a standard 3.5mm/1/8” plug, not a proprietary connector.
I’m concerned I won’t be physically able to do the show.
We understand! The word ‘marathon’ is intimidating. The show travels over 3 miles of the park and most people can enjoy the show at a walking pace, following the performer as the story unfolds. If you have specific mobility concerns or other issues related to accessibility, please reach out to us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Are there any public restrooms?
There are public restrooms in Central Park: one near Columbus Circle, one near Tavern On The Green, one near Heckscher Playground, one near Central Park Zoo. See the full list of restrooms in Central Park here. https://centralpark.org/restrooms/
What if it’s raining?
We monitor the weather almost constantly. If the weather looks bad or conditions unsafe, we’ll send ticket holders an email at least a day before to let them know a show cancellation is possible. We’ll give them a clear timeline of when we’ll make the decision. In the event we do need to cancel a show, we’ll reach out to rebook your ticket.
Oh no! I’m at the end of your list and I still have a question that hasn’t been answered!
If you have any remaining questions, please email email@example.com.
