WeAreMarried LLC (WAM) is the performance collaboration of transgender actors and longtime friends Jay Eisenberg (he/him/his) and Shelby Richardson (they/them/theirs). WAM creates and produces dynamic, original shows & events, while always remaining committed to paying trans and queer artists thriving wages. Your fun & pleasure is non-negotiable. Remember: we are here to make your life more bearable.
WAM is built on relationships. We formally launched WAM in 2021 as a public investment in our friendship, an experiment in challenging existing models of theatre-making, and a commitment to making compelling, site-responsive art that pays trans and queer artists a minimum of $35/hr. WAM is here to contribute to a healthy, vibrant, artist economy where artist-laborers can count on us for work that sustains, stimulates, and satisfies.
WAM values financial transparency, artistic innovation, and long term partnership with our guest artists (both inside and outside of their work with WAM). Our unique business model draws inspiration from unions, amusement parks, production houses, multi-platform media companies, creative agencies, and lessons from 15+ years of experience working as actors in mainstream professional theater in New York and the Twin Cities.
Past work includes HOUSEFUCKER (Spring 2022), BIGGAME (Fall 2022), INTERVIEW WITH THE CREATOR (Spring 2023), and our beloved speed-meeting game show FAST GAY DATING (recurring). Our next original clown show, RICH DOGS, premieres in Fall 2023.
Our digital platform, Ars Nova Supra, is the home to most of our 2022/23 season offerings! Tune in weekly for premieres created specifically for streaming available live and on-demand with a $15/month, cancel-anytime subscription. LEARN MORE.
