Filmmaker and author John Waters to present one-man show

Add event to my calendar

John Waters, the Baltimore underground filmmaker (Pink Flamingos) turned American cultural icon, will appear in person at the Cinematheque on Saturday, September 27. At 7:30pm that night Waters will present This Filthy World: Filthier and Dirtier, a unique one-man show that has delighted audiences around the world. This “vaudeville act” (as he calls it) is a 75-minute monologue in which the man whom William Burroughs once called “the Pope of Trash” dissects his checkered film career and unusual tastes. Listen and laugh as the outré auteur with the pencil mustache details his early negative artistic influences—from true crime and exploitation films to lunatic fashions—and explores the extremities of the contemporary art world. Waters’ talk will be followed by a Q&A, then by a book signing. (Copies of his new tome Carsick: John Waters Hitchhikes Across America will be sold.) Special admission is $40; Cinematheque members and CIA I.D. holders $30; age 25 & under (at the door after 6pm on Sept. 27, if seats remain) $25; no passes, twofers, or radio winners will be honored and no one under 18 will be admitted. No reserved seats. Advance $40 & $30 tickets are available here.

Note that This Filthy World: Filthier and Dirtier is a completely updated presentation of Waters’ one-man show This Filthy World, which is available on DVD. Photo of John Waters by Greg Gorman.
