Performance has the capacity to make us feel and experience powerful new emotions, just like becoming a parent or realizing that you've fallen in love with the Quaker Oats man. Awaken unknown sentiments with today's Groupon: for $15, you get two tickets to see Mortified at Shattuck Down Low on Friday, July 22, at 8 p.m. (a $30 value).
A critically acclaimed show, Mortified brings average adults onstage to relive past pits of awkwardness and embarrassment through the reading of youthful journals, letters, and other writings. Performances are carefully curated by Mortified's crack team of humiliation experts, digging through volunteers' juvenilia to search out the pieces that offer the most entertaining and cathartic evenings as well as the most effective blackmail. Today's deal allows viewers to cringe with commiserating delight at Shattuck Down Low, an intimate bar, lounge, and music venue with cozy booths and couches that give viewers a comfortable perch from which to watch the readings. A guest band and large dance floor provide a post-show opportunity to shimmy and shake mortification away or bring it raining down with ceremonial awkwardness-summoning moves.
Seating at the venue is limited and provided on a first-come, first-serve basis.
