    John Waters films released us. His world and perceptions allowed film and comedy to explore the other side. His body of work is so forward thinking and unique. I would be ever so grateful to start my Holiday season with him!

      I have wanted to attend this every year but sadly I have never been able to afford it. I tell everyone that all I want to be in life is a John Waters character and my style and attitude about life reflects that. Would love to see this legend in person.

      Legendary icon!!
      I would love to experience some Waters magic
      Yes, please.

    Love John Waters, would be a fun show.

  13. Christy November 6, 2018 at 1:48 pm #

    I’m from Baltimore as is Mr. Waters. I’ve grown up with his work and marvelous antics. My partner and I have been wanting to make it to A John Water’s Christmas for years. We always seem to be broke so it never happens. It would be amazing to finally have the chance to go. I recently watched a video on BBC news relating to a show of Mr. Water’s art which is currently running at the Baltimore Museum of Art. If anyone is interested check it out here: https://www.bbc.com/news/av/world-us-canada-46067093/changing-faces-of-an-innovative-artist You can gain a little insight into the mind behind the work. :)

  14. Michelle Blake November 6, 2018 at 1:57 pm #

  51. Hilary P November 10, 2018 at 4:05 am #

    We were postcard Penpals back in 1985! I still have those amazing promo cards from The King of Bad Taste adorned with glam shots of Divine and the cover of his book Crackpot. My favorite was the signature Baltimore MD stamp cancellation. One of those treasured postcards had a Squeaky Fromme stamp. So deliciously toe-curlingly tacky! I have a deep burning spiritual love for the Pope of Trash. Please assist me on my pilgrimage to experience the holy essence of John Waters.

  52. Dott November 10, 2018 at 9:07 am #

    I am totally in love with his movies. Seeing him live would be the bomb!!!

    It was ther 70’s and I was an “outlaw” Butch Texan playing NYC at a private parties at Serendipity (Judy Buies Boot Shop) and O’Lunneys Steak House when I was given front row tickets to see Divine in “Women Behind Bars – an off off Broadway play. ( It was so far off Broadway, we had to walk 16 blocks just to find a cab that would pick us up – such a bad neighborhood supposedly.)

    The house lights were flashing as we entered the theater- our giant 5” brim cowboys hats caused lots of murmuring as we were seated. Divine stopped the play’s start, looked around the not-yet-up curtain and made a few flirty comments to us.

    The play cast was made up of a lot of John’s acting group. This was before all of John’s movies came out. My band and I became huge fans that night and followed everything else that Waters’ and Divine did after that! He is a genius.

    I am lucky to live in Portland now, and I do not want to miss this show!

  106. Asher Brill November 27, 2018 at 2:24 pm #

    My best friend will be in town – I haven’t seen her for 19 3/4 years due to us both having real struggles with our health, but it’s finally happening, on The weeknd John Waters is in town! We both LOVE John Waters films, we were both introduced to films like Polyester at a young age by our drag queen friends. This would be the most important event – we’d show up in our finest Cha Cha heels ! Thanks for this chance to enter. I’m keeping my fingers crossed until Friday night.

  107. Meredith Wrinkle November 27, 2018 at 7:24 pm #

    I’d love to take my boyfriend to this!

  108. nic November 28, 2018 at 2:02 pm #

    Sunday is my 37th birthday. Last month I brilliantly quit my job. I moved across the state to save money and find peace. I planned to study for my lsat and apply to law school… then I got dumped. It had been a six year relationship that I incorrectly thought supported my plan. Now I am trying to be rational, and focused, and sober (ugh). I’m trying to concentrate on logic and reasoning and comprehending impossibly boring reading passages, and keeping my crying on the inside, and on not hanging myself with a Christmas stocking, all while my ex sits on a beach in Hawaii. John Waters you say?! Well, that would be just marvelous.

  109. Mike November 29, 2018 at 5:39 pm #

    I’ve wanted to go to John Waters productions in past years, though I keep missing the window to try to buy tickets, so it would be great to get a chance this year.
