John Waters - "This Filthy World"
- May 29, 2014 7pm
John Waters is kind of a professional weirdo. Once nicknamed the “Pope of Trash,” Waters has built his career of acting, directing, writing, and producing on a foundation of shock, disgust, and filth—and we love him for it. In This Filthy World, he talks about his origins as a macabre child in Baltimore, his earliest negative influences (among them, visiting a scrapyard and seeing a human bloodstain), sexual fetishes, and more. Despite the fact that Waters has previously said, “I pride myself on the fact that my work has no socially redeeming value,” this show has an 86% “fresh” rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
