Super Secret Arts is our answer to the question: if theater was invented today, what would a modern theater company look like? 

Super Secret Arts was conceptualized in the summer of 2020 and formalized in the summer of 2021 by theatrical collaborators Toby Singer and Kevin Laibson.

 

We hope to change the economic orthodoxy around theatermaking, by replacing traditional forms of arts funding with a membership model granting unlimited access to all of our shows, for one reasonable monthly fee - like Netflix for theatre.

Streaming platforms have democratized the television and film industry by leveraging monthly, recurring revenue across a huge user base. This spreads the risk across millions of subscribers and enables a diverse array of projects to flourish while reducing the individual pressure to succeed. Super Secret Arts is essentially taking that model and superimposing it on live theatrical arts. We hope to use this new theatrical economic paradigm to promote access to the arts, help audiences expand their artistic horizons, and most importantly, do our part in repairing the toxic, broken economic reality of theater-making, for artists, creatives, crew, and staff.

Super Secret Arts is both a place where audiences experience thought-provoking art across many genres and also a place where they feel connected to a community with a greater purpose. We’re creating an artistic environment where adventurous art has a chance to breathe, a place that is safe for everyone to express themselves in the way they wish, and perhaps more than anything else - a place that is kind.

We intend to create and produce art that is full of the seriousness, the meaningless, and the preciousness of life, all at once.

We seek to bridge the gap between interdisciplinary live performance and immersive digital content.

While we're a theater company, we think theater can mean music, comedy, improv, dance, cabaret, drag, inscrutable stuff, singalongs, immersive experiences, and yes, Theatre.  

 

While we stand for joyful art, we stand even more for joyful art-making.

We see genre as a hat to wear. One should own a number of hats.

 

We are driven by a responsibility to make art that shines a flashlight on a troubled, badly broken world, even if we don’t understand if or how our contribution helps. We must do our part, even though that is almost certainly not enough.

We’d like to acknowledge that the space we're in today occupies the unceded land of the Munsee Lenape People. We pay respect to them and to the many indigenous nations of this region.
