Mortified is back! And we're excited to announce: This month we are featuring our very first Deaf performer!
May 6th and 7th, show times at 7:30/10:30 on Friday and Saturday night ALL FOUR shows will be Interpreted!
Witness a night of brave, beautiful people telling stories about their lives by sharing their most mortifying childhood artifacts (diaries, letters, lyrics, poems, home movies) in front of total strangers. Equal parts comedy, theater, & therapy. Get a taste by watching the Mortified Nation documentary on Netflix!
Buy tickets online for $12 before they sell out, or you can purchase standing room only seats at the door for $15 - but don't worry! We reserve a limited number of seats near the interpreters until 5 minutes to showtime so you won't have to stand!
