ANNOUNCEMENTS

UPDATE 4.07.21 – THIS EVENT HAS BEEN RESCHEDULED FOR MAY 14th 2022. Tickets purchased for previous concert dates will be honored for the rescheduled date.


ABOUT THE EVENT

This live performance is part of a two-day John Waters Festival which includes screenings of Polyester on Friday, May 13th at 9:45 pm, and Hairspray (1988) on Saturday, May 14th at 4:30 pm. Tickets sold separately.  

This Filthy World is John Waters’ rapid-fire one-man spoken word “vaudeville” act that celebrates the film career and joyously appalling taste of the man William Burroughs once called “The Pope of Trash”. Updated and expanded from the original film version that enjoyed critical success at the Edinburgh, Toronto, and Berlin Film Festivals, the live performance of This Filthy World focuses on Waters’s early negative artistic influences, his fascination with true crime, exploitation films, fashion lunacy, the extremes of the art world, Catholicism, sexual deviancy and a love of reading.
