An Evening with John Waters
Christened “The Pope of Trash” by William S. Burroughs, John Waters is a filmmaker best known for his avant-garde, often searingly controversial body of work. Many recognize him as the force behind the original Hairspray movie, which was produced on Broadway decades later and then remade as a musical film. But his cinematic canon is far more extensive than that. Making fellow Baltimoreans proud—and queasy—since the ’60s, his repertoire includes Cry-Baby, Serial Mom, and Pink Flamingos, all of which brim with the giddy satire, subversive values, and gleeful violence that earned him his papal title in the first place.
Most recently, Waters and his trademark pencil mustache hitchhiked across the country and turned his exploits into a book called Carsick, which encompasses a sprawling, hilariously abject tapestry of high and low. In An Evening with John Waters, he pontificates on his favorite things and reflects on his body of work while drawing laughs—and maybe gasps—from the audience.
Bergen Performing Arts Center
In 2004—on a mission to bolster its community’s wellspring of creativity and education—the nonprofit Bergen Performing Arts Center took over the former John Harms Center, an art-deco-style movie and vaudeville palace built in 1922. Today, in the same antique theater where Frank Capra screened his first car chase, the venue hosts 150 yearly events that bring dance, music, and theatrical productions to an estimated 250,000 annual audience members. Networks such as HBO, PBS, and MTV all have filmed international broadcasts on the stage, which has seen the likes of Diana Krall, Heart, and ZZ Top.
