‘A John Waters Christmas’ — Dec. 16

Legendary filmmaker and raconteur John Waters (Pink Flamingos, Hairspray, A Dirty Shame) rides into town on his sleigh full of smut, spreading yuletide cheer with his one-man show, A John Waters Christmas, Dec. 16 at 8 p.m. at the Barrymore Theatre, 2090 Atwood Ave., in Madison. Tickets are $38 for general admission. Special Gold Circle VIP tickets are $115. Waters pokes fun at the holiday season with adult-appropriate humor, effectively “putting the X in Xmas.” 608-241-8633 or barrymorelive.com
