His art retrospective is up at the Baltimore Museum of Art, and every year around Christmas he takes the stage as a “St. Nick for the Christmas corrupted” to spread the holiday spirit. And now this Valentine’s Day, John Waters, Baltimore’s beloved agitator and the Pope of Trash, is going to be a date in the very intimate setting of the Baltimore Soundstage.
According to an event description, the one-man show, titled “A Date With John Waters,” will touch on the auteur’s “early artistic influences and his fascination with true crime, exploitation films, fashion lunacy, and the extremes of sexual politics.”
No doubt Waters’ trademark wit and celebration of bad taste will be a welcome break from all the pretenses that typically surround Valentine’s Day.
Tickets go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. through Ticketmaster and cost $44 in advance or $49.50 at the door. For $110, attendees can join the Golden Circle and take part in a meet and greet with the legendary director after the show.
