Looking to celebrate Christmas with a decidedly different twist? Maybe A John Waters Christmas at the Wilshire Ebell Theatre this Thursday, Dec 6th. is your ticket. The Baltimore filmmaker and artist best known for his edgy cult films, bawdry comedy, and pencil thin mustache, promises to deliver a performance far afield from your regular Christmas fare (and no doubt not appropriate for children.)Like a wayward Santa for the Christmas obsessed, legendary filmmaker and raconteur John Waters (Pink Flamingos, Hairspray, A Dirty Shame) rides into town on his sleigh full of smut, spreading yuletide cheer with his critically acclaimed one-man show, “A John Waters Christmas.” Putting the “X” in Xmas, Waters’s rapid-fire monologue explores and explodes traditional archetypes as he shares his compulsive desire to give and receive perverted gifts, a religious fanaticism for Santa Claus, and an unhealthy love of true crime holiday horror stories. (From promotional materials.)
