WEST PALM BEACH (October 8, 2019) 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, Make Trouble and Mr. Know-It-All, hitchhikes into town with a bag full of tricks for the despised and the depraved, spreading Yuletide corruption and cock-eyed piety with his critically acclaimed one-man show, “A John Waters Christmas.” The “Pope of Trash” himself takes the stage at the Raymond F. Kravis Center for the Performing Arts as a part of its PEAK series on December 2 at 8 pm.
This time John Waters is going beyond the valley of bad little boys and girls, over the top of deluded elf-happiness, beneath Rudolph’s slavish cult devotion and the stringent regulations of Santa himself to a whole new level of lunatic holiday cheer. You better watch out, you better cry! John Waters, the cracked Kris Kringle, the psycho Santa Supreme is coming to town. https://www.kravis.org/events/waters/
