Like a damaged St. Nick for the Christmas corrupted, John Waters — legendary filmmaker («Female Trouble», «Hairspray», «Serial Mom»), raconteur and author of bestselling books, Carsick, Role Models and Make Trouble — hitchhikes into town with a bag full of sticks and stones for the devoted and the damned, spreading Yuletide profanity and perverted piety with his critically acclaimed one-man show, «A John Waters Christmas». This rapid-fire «trigger warning» for holiday traditionalists asks the questions, «Is Prancer the only gay reindeer?», «Is it wrong to steal purses from cars in graveyard parking lots on Christmas Eve while mourners leave flowers?», «Has Santa ever been nude?», and, most importantly, «Should you disrupt living creche celebrations this year in the name of political action?» Miracles really do happen at Yuletide, even if they're false, and Waters prays for a Gaspar Noe Christmas film, and a new sex club that encourages gay men and lesbians to have sex with each other for the very first time. Delving into his love for the annual December warning list of «Unsafe Toys to Give Your Child» and his hatred for email Christmas cards, The Easter Bunny, and any kind of holiday «food issues», the Pope of Trash will give you a Cool Yule like no other. You better watch out, you better cry! John Waters, the People's Pervert, is coming to town.
