Membership FAQ

 

How do I get a ticket to a show?

 

Super Secret Arts doesn’t have tickets the way most live arts producers do. We’re built on a membership model. It’s essentially Netflix for live performance.

 

To come to a Super Secret Arts show, you either purchase a membership and then reserve a seat (for free), or come as a one-off guest of an existing member. Membership gives you unlimited, free access to all the shows happening on a monthly basis, space permitting. It’s like a $25 ticket that gets you in all month long. Going forward, that’s about 25 shows a month. It also gives you the ability to bring guests for $15/person to any of those shows.

 

Beginning in April, that membership will also entitle you to access to an array of digital offerings, including virtual reality versions of our live shows, exclusive video and audio content, and digital-only installations.

 

Does my membership auto-renew?

 

Yes, on a monthly basis, for the same rate of $25.

 

How do I cancel my membership?

 

Pause your membership first! Go to 'your account' and click 'join new plan'. Select 'Super Secret Membership Pause' - this plan is free, and keeps you in our community until you are able to attend again.  If you prefer to cancel, you can do so from inside 'your account'.

 

Do I have to sign up in advance? Or can I just show up and buy a membership at the box office?

 

It helps us streamline the process if you do sign up and reserve seats in advance, but you can absolutely sign up (and purchase seats for any guests) when you arrive at the venue. QR codes linking to the sign-up page are prominently displayed in the lobby and entrance foyer. Simply scan the code, sign up, and show your confirmation email to the staff member at the door.

 

Can I buy a ticket for a guest at the door?

 

Yes, you can buy access for guests for $15/person at the door, whether you bought your membership ahead of time, or at the venue. We accept Venmo, cash, and credit cards.

I just want to come to one show. Can I just buy a single ticket?

 

If you only want to come to a single, specific show, you have two options: 1) You could go with someone that is a member as a guest of theirs for $15, with no further obligation on your part or 2) we have a limited number of single tickets available at the door ($30 for repertory programming, $39 for mainstage shows).

 

Ok I’m a member- what does this $25 monthly subscription give me?

 

Your membership gives you unlimited, free access to all of the shows happening in our Gowanus venue, space-permitting. Going forward, that’s about 25 shows a month. It also gives you the ability to bring guests for $15/person to any of those shows.

 

Beginning in Q1 of 2022, that membership will also entitle you to access to an array of digital offerings, including virtual reality versions of our live shows, exclusive video and audio content, and digital-only installations.

 

Where do the shows happen?

 

Currently, all shows happen at our Gowanus venue on the second floor of 400 3rd Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11215. We’re a short walk from 4th and 9th FGR, and the B103 stops right outside our door. We’re around the corner from the Gowanus Whole Foods, if that helps.

 

What are your COVID policies?

 

We want everyone to be safe and stay healthy as we all traverse what is hopefully the tail end of the pandemic. We require proof of vaccination and a matching photo ID for entrance to any of our shows and events. We encourage mask wearing while not actively eating or drinking.

Janelle Lawrence

Janelle Lawrence is an interdisciplinary artist who specializes in highlighting the complexity and layers of our lives. What does it mean to specialize in this? Well, it means they use every tool: music, soundscaping, dialogue, poetry, conversation, body, movement, etc., to present and occasionally replicate the parts of us that are unique, special, and still shared. They have had their musicals, plays, and performance art presented in various theaters; The Kennedy Center, Legoland New York, Joe’s Pub, Seattle Public Theater, and National Black Theatre - but they no longer want that to define their artistic depth and experience. They have been crafting stories, examining (people), and attempting to dis/uncover how we grow together with their whole life; storytelling is what they do.
