In conversation with Jason Freeman

“A greater National Treasure than 90 percent of the people who are given ‘Kennedy Center Honors’ (The Washington Post), filmmaker, actor, and writer John Waters was also lovingly described as “The Pope of Trash” by William Burroughs. His movies include Pink Flamingos, Hairspray, Cry Baby, Serial Mom, and Cecil B. Demented, and his many books include Shock Value, Crackpot, Role Models, and Carsick, in which, provisioned with only his trademark mustache, wit, and a cardboard sign that read “I’m Not Psycho,” Waters met America’s citizenry as he hitchhiked to the west coast. Make Trouble is a manifesto for all those who seek happiness on their own terms. 

*Book included with ticket
