An Awkward Evening with Mortified Creator David Nadelberg

When: Fri., July 14, 7 p.m. 2017

David Nadelberg somehow persuaded regular people to stop sharing stories and photos from their embarrassing teen years on social media — and instead reveal them to a crowd of strangers. Even odder, people have embraced his quest and now voluntarily participate in Nadelberg's traveling show of profound shame. His Mortified program is now both a book and a TV show, with celebrities providing some of the revelations in the latter. Nadelberg will be at the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis (3750 Washington Boulevard; at 7 p.m. tonight to discuss the dark art of baring your teenage soul to random people. He'll also participate in an audience Q & A and share tidbits from his own teenage years. A pre-selected group of volunteers will read from their old journals and tell their tales of embarrassing dates. Tickets are $20 to $50.
