How to Spend a Smutty Christmas With John Waters

If the yuletide cheer of the holiday season makes you want to gag, then you can’t do worse than spend a night during December with ‘The Pope of Trash,’ John Waters. The “Pink Flamingos” director returns to New York next month with his acclaimed one man show, “A John Waters Christmas.”
