We welcome back the legendary writer and director, John Waters (Pink Flamingos, Hairspray, Cry Baby), to the Carnegie Lecture 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 posing provocative holiday questions, such as “Is Prancer the only gay reindeer?” and “Should you disrupt living crèche celebrations this year in the name of political action?”

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

VIP tickets include general admission seating and post-show meet and greet.

Doors open at 7:00 p.m.

This event is co-presented with Carnegie Museum of Art.
