Film Icon John Waters Is Coming to Phoenix's Celebrity Theatre

Celebrity Theatre


Director, author, artist, queer icon — John Waters wears a lot of hats.

And you'll hear all about it when he comes to Phoenix on Friday, October 14.

Waters is bringing his "False Negative: An Evening With John Waters" show to Celebrity Theatre. The show is "a rapid-fire one-man spoken word vaudevillean act that celebrates the film career and joyously appalling taste" of the director, according to a release.

Waters is the writer and director of cult classics like Pink Flamingos, Multiple Maniacs, Hairspray, Cry-Baby, and Serial Mom. His most recent project is the book Liarmouth: A Feel-Bad Romance: A Novel, which came out in May.

Tickets for the show go on sale at 10 a.m. on Friday, July 1, on the Celebrity Theatre website.
