UCLA Live: John Waters' This Filthy World Goes Hollywood - Wed, Feb 23, 2011

John Waters
with special guests Elvis Perkins, Matthew Gray Gubler
This Filthy World Goes Hollywood
Wed, Feb 23, 2011 at 8:00 PM
Royce Hall
$28/38/48 ($15 UCLA students)

As a screenwriter, director, artist, actor, and all-around filth elder, John Waters has become a rotten renaissance man of unprecedented cultural influence. Not only was his movie Hairspray turned into a wildly successful Tony Awardwinning musical, his recently published memoir, Role Models, has been called “alarmingly refined.” Waters’ one-man vaudeville act, This Filthy World Goes Hollywood sends up show business, the art world, and his own lunatic career in a rapid-fire performance. Dynamic modern-rock recording artist Elvis Perkins opens the show with a solo set, and actor Matthew Gray Gubler hosts as the evening’s emcee.
