Monday, December 3rd at Tarrytown Musichall

Like a wayward Santa for the Christmas obsessed, John Waters – legendary filmmaker (Pink Flamingos, Hairspray and more) raconteur and author of the bestselling book, Role Models – cruises into town with his sleigh full of sticks and stones spreading yuletide cheer and lunacy with his critically acclaimed one-man show, A John Waters Christmas.

Torn between capitalism and anarchy, Waters feels “Christmas crazy” this year, noting he’s “needy, greedy, horny for presents and filled with an unnatural desire to please.”  His rapid-fire monologue explores and explodes the traditional holiday rituals and traditions as he shares his religious fanaticism for Santa Claus – and an unhealthy love of real life holiday horror stories.

Delving into his passion for lunatic exploitation Christmas movies and the unhealthy urge to remake all his own films into seasonal children’s classics.

For this special Christmas edition of his show, Waters will be joined by special guest, singer / songwriter Kimya Dawson. Dawson is a Grammy winning, platinum selling singer songwriter most widely known for her work on the JUNO soundtrack and her former band, The Moldy Peaches.

This is the only New York City area show for 2012.
