Quotes & Highlights

Check out the website for opening act Elvis Perkins.
Matthew Gray Gubler of Criminal Minds fame has a quirky cool website.


As a screenwriter, director, artist, actor, and all-around filth elder, John Waters has become a rotten renaissance man of unprecedented cultural influence. Not only was his movie Hairspray turned into a wildly successful Tony Award-winning musical, his recently published memoir, Role Models, has been called  “alarmingly refined.” Waters’ one-man vaudeville act, This Filthy World Goes Hollywood sends up show business, the art world, and his own lunatic career in a rapid-fire performance. Dynamic modern-rock recording artist Elvis Perkins opens the show with a solo set, and actor Matthew Gray Gubler hosts as the evening’s emcee.
