THIS PERFORMANCE IS SOLD OUT*
John Waters returns to the Luckman with an all-new version of his solo stand-up performance. Waters’ joyously devious monologue celebrates his film career and obsessional tastes.
A celebrated filmmaker, director, and writer, John Waters has built a reputation for shocking his audiences. Many of the cult legend’s films satirize suburban America as well as many social conventions and attitudes. He started out making short experimental films in the 1960s, often using friends as actors and holding renegade, underground showings in offbeat locales. Roman Candles (1966), one of his early works, marked the first time Waters worked with Divine, the larger-than-life drag queen now synonymous with Waters’ body of work.
Turning to feature films, Waters made Mondo Trasho (1969), Pink Flamingos (1972), Hairspray (1988), Cry-Baby (1990), Serial Mom (1994), Pecker (1998), and Cecil B. Demented (2000).
