Event description

Join us for a night of humorous storytelling from everyday people in Chicago. We’ve all experienced some kind of embarrassment in our lifetime. Come out and commiserate over some cold beverages at the historic Music Box Theatre.

Prepare to break out your lightsabers for a Star Wars edition of Mortified on May 4 (the second most embarrassing holiday).

Witness “personal redemption through public humiliation” in a refreshing show that is equal parts comedic, cathartic and voyeuristic. Mortified is the largest and longest running project of its kind featuring a cast of Chicago’s bravest souls. Share the shame.

Mortified stars everyday people reading aloud their most embarrassing, pathetic and private teenage diary entries, poems, love letters, lyrics and locker notes… in front of total strangers.

Mortified Chicago is generously sponsored by Goose Island.


Selecting the VIP add-on during check-out allows you early access to the theatre and complimentary beers from Goose Island!


Join us after Mortified Live to celebrate the 40th anniversary of STAR WARS: RETURN OF THE JEDI! Don’t miss your chance to relive the magic of this timeless classic. To secure your spot, note your interest during checkout. The movie will start promptly at 10:15pm in the same auditorium as Mortified. No need to do anything, all you have to do is rsvp!

This is a free screening, but seating is limited. Make sure to get your tickets in advance! May the fourth be with you!

Covid-19: Masks strongly recommended.

Open captions will be provided.
