Past Event A John Waters Christmas: Holier & Dirtier


The Warhol welcomes back the legendary and incomparable writer and director John Waters to the opulent Carnegie Music Hall, with his critically acclaimed one-man show A John Waters Christmas. Torn between capitalism and anarchy, Waters offers his hilariously incisive take on “Christmas crazy,” spreading his subversive yuletide cheer and lunacy while feeling “needy, greedy, and horny for presents and filled with an unnatural desire to please.” The performance is co-presented with Carnegie Museum of Art and in conjunction with the exhibition Warhol By the Book.

Directly following his performance, Waters will hold a book-signing for performance ticket buyers only featuring his recent titles, such as Carsick, Role Models, and Shock Value, as well as his annual Christmas t-shirt (available exclusively at the tour show dates). All items will be available for purchase on site.

Please note this performance contains adult subject matter and strong language.
