Salon of Shame #34

Chances are that this show is already sold out—and for good reason. Since 2005, the Salon of Shame has exposed some of the city’s most torrid literature to audiences who hang on every star-crossed “t” and heart-dotted “i” as adult authors read their junior high journal entries and unsent puppy-love letters. It is, as the name makes clear, a shameful evening. And shame sells. So quickly, in fact, that some people choose the public humiliation of reading an Ode to ‘N Sync, just so they can get a seat for the rest of the show. If you choose to keep your diary locked, you can just go to and join the “Notification List of Shame” to get a jump on the next event.
