Mortified Then, Funny Now. How We Survive Our Childhood @ MASS MoCA Saturday [Berkshire on Stage]

Mortified

Turning lemons into lemonade is what the longest-running project of its kind, Mortified, began to do in the late 1990s when Dave Nadelberg unearthed a wonderfully awkward love letter and shared it with friends. “I like to share that because of the pretentiousness of my 17-year-old self. I wrote drafts upon drafts upon drafts of this love letter. Then I forgot about it,” Nadelberg says. “It was a gateway to a past life. Reading it was really funny to me because I thought this kid was so ridiculous, but I was fascinated because of how similar I still was to this idiot who wrote this melodramatic – trying way too hard – love letter.”
