As of today, due to extremely limited availability remaining throughout the entire run of Endgame, Long Wharf is no longer able to guarantee tickets for any patrons who take out Library Passes from any of the Libraries participating in the program.

Long Wharf is not able to guarantee seats but will place Library Pass tickets on Standby until theirStandby list is full. We apologize for the inconvenience but after the standby list is full, Long Wharf Theatre will not be able to honor any additional Library Passes or paid tickets. Additional dates will be added to this list as we get closer to the first performance as many additional performances are close to sold out. For the most up to date availability, please visit


Instructions for those who elect to check out a pass:

-       You must call the Long Wharf box office at 203-787-4282 to reserve your space on the Standby list. No spaces will be set aside without call to the box office.

-       Once you have reserved your space, the Theatre will inform you by phone if seats become available. Patrons will be contacted in the order that they were placed on the standby list. This may happen as late as the day of the performance.

-       If you do not receive a call from thebox office, you must show up 45 to 30 minutes prior to the start time of their selected performance, check in at the box office and collect a standby number, which will be assigned in order of arrival at the theater for the performance. Additional instructions will be provided at that time.


-       If you show up to the theatre as a standby ticket holder and are not able to be seated, a member of the box office staff will rebook the Library Passes tickets into another performance where seats are available.
