"This Filthy World, Volume 2"

The visionary filmmaker John Waters comes to Basilica Hudson for an exclusive single performance to take on taboo topics with his one-man show "This Filthy World, Volume 2" on October 18 at 8pm. Proceeds will benefit Basilica Arts and AIDS Council of Northeastern New York. Celebrating 50 years in the film industry and a recent bestseller, Carsick: John Water Hitchhikes across America, Waters will also read and sign at Finch: life curated, located at 613 Warren Street, at 2 pm.

Known to his legions of fans as "the Pope of Trash," Waters was branded "O for Offensive" by the Catholic Church, a distinction he cherishes. Waters has earned his bad reputation throughout the years by turning bad taste into high art. Some of his more popular work includes Cry Baby, Polyester, and Hairspray. Tickets for the performance are $125 for general admission, $175 for preferred seating including cocktails, and $50 for students (with valid ID).
