UPDATE 9.17.2020 – This Filthy World: An Evening with John Waters has been rescheduled for May 15th, 2021. 

Tickets purchased for the April 18th or the October 10th concert will be honored for the rescheduled date.

This Filthy World is John Waters’s 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.

This live performance is part of a two-day John Waters Festival which includes screenings of Polyester on Friday, May 14th at 9:45PM and Hairspray (1988) on Saturday, May 15th at 4:30PM. Tickets sold separately.
