More Info: John Waters
June 2014 was the release of CARSICK! John Waters hitchhiked across America and has the stories to share.
John Waters is a man of many monikers: The Prince of Puke, The Duke of Dirt, The Sultan of Sleaze. Anyway you put it, John Waters is famed the world over for his trash epics including “Pink Flamingos”, “Female Trouble”, “Desperate Living”, “Polyester”, “Serial Mom”, “Pecker”, “Cecil B. Demented”, and “A Dirty Shame”. Two of his more surprisingly commercial films have been adapted for the stage. “Hairspray”, winner of eight Tony Awards and “Cry Baby – The Musical” nominated for four Tony Awards. In the summer of 2007, “Hairspray” reinvented itself cinematically as a big-budget Hollywood movie starring John Travolta that became a smash hit worldwide.
“Filthier and Dirtier” is the follow up to Mr. Waters’ rapid-fire one-man spoken word “vaudeville” act that he performed at The Englert during Mission Creek Festival 2011. Expect an updated and current exploration into the mind and life of an artistic genius, the man who William Burroughs once called “The Pope of Trash”.
