A John Waters Christmas
Friday, Dec 9, 2011 · 7:30 pm
Like a wayward Santa for the Christmas obsessed, John Waters - legendary filmmaker (“Pink Flamingos,” “Hairspray,” “A Dirty Shame”), raconteur and author of the bestselling book, Role Models - cruises into town with his sleigh full of sticks and stones this December spreading yuletide cheer and lunacy with his critically acclaimed one-man show, “A John Waters Christmas”. Torn between capitalism and anarchy, Waters feels “Christmas crazy” this year, “needy, greedy, horny for presents and filled with an unnatural desire to please.” His rapid-fire monologue explores and explodes the traditional holiday rituals and traditions as he shares his religious fanaticism for Santa Claus, and an unhealthy love of real life holiday horror stories. Delving into his passion for lunatic exploitation Christmas movies and the unhealthy urge to remake all his own films into seasonal children’s classics, “The Pope of Trash” will give you a Joyeaux Noel like no other.For more information on John Waters Christmas show please contact John Kaufman.
