The Ross Media Arts Center and The Friends of The Ross present John
Waters’ one man show “This Filthy World” live at the Rococo Theatre
(140 North 13th Street, Lincoln NE) on Thursday, April 23 at 7:00 p.m.
John Waters’ one-man show is a “vaudeville” act that celebrates the
film career and obsessional tastes of the man William Burroughs once called
“The Pope of Trash.” Focusing in on Waters’ early negative artistic
influences and his fascination with true crime, exploitation films, fashion
lunacy, and the extremes of the contemporary art world, this joyously
devious monologue elevates all that is trashy in life into a call to arms
to “filth followers” everywhere.
There will be a special reception in the Van Brunt Visitors Center 313 N
13th immediately following the show (approximately 9:00-11:00 p.m.).
Attendees purchasing tickets for the reception will have an opportunity to
greet Mr. Waters, get an autograph and/or have their pictures taken with
