FILTHY PEOPLE OF THE WORLD, UNITE! We come together for one night only to carry on the tradition of Sexploitation, a John Waters Cabaret! This year we get more depraved with amazing additions to our cast. Join us in celebrating the Sultan of Sleaze himself as we provide lewd and crude performances that will send your morals into a frenzy.

Filmmaker, director and writer John Waters, sometimes called the "King of Bad Taste" or the "Pope of Trash," has built a reputation for shocking his audiences.
Today, John Waters is a brand. He acts, hosts TV shows, writes books, performs one-man shows, and terraforms the mainstream into a place that can stomach everything he was dishing out in the 1970s. He hasn’t made a film since 2004’s A Dirty Shame, but he’s still the man who turned Divine, a.k.a. Harris Glenn Milstead, Dreamland’s resident drag queen, into the co-star of Hairspray, a major motion picture in not-quite-progressive 1988. His humor snuck into Hollywood with movies like Serial Mom, Pecker, and Cecil B. DeMented. On paper, Waters’ filmography reads like a miracle—and it shouldn’t go unnoticed (Matt Patches, The Dissolve SEPTEMBER 02, 2014)

Prepare yourself to swoon over 'Cry-Baby' Walker, watch the miracle of a chicken laying an egg LIVE, drag performance to Serial Mom, the duo competing for "Filthiest People" Raymond and Connie Marble, QUEEN Carlotta herself from Desperate Living and MORE!
