A John Waters Christmas

John Waters (Pink Flamingos, Hairspray, A Dirty Shame) to perform an unforgettable night of holiday mischief with his critically acclaimed one man show, A John Waters Christmas! Waters pokes fun at the holiday season with adult-appropriate humor, effectively "putting the X in Xmas," developing a show for the open minded and slightly left-of-center audience.

The cult classic, Baltimore-born filmmaker began his Hollywood success with now Broadway classic, Hairspray in 1988. Claiming his playful nicknames "Pope of Trash" and "Prince of Puke," he maintains his image through his filmmaking and his personal presentation. Regarded as a shocking entertainer, John Waters carefully chooses his material and exploits it through a dirty lens. "It's my obsession with Christmas: what I want for Christmas, what you should want, how to handle every holiday disaster," Waters says.  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.
