UM . . . YOU FORGOT SLEAZERRIFIC
Polyesterlicious? Pink Flamingotastic? Hairspraymazing? That's John Waters, the iconic cult-film director who transformed low-brow cinema into high art, and he explains it all at ALOUD's An Evening With John Waters: On Neurotic Happiness , an onstage conversation with Hollywood's own antiestablishmentarian Bruce Wagner (Force Majeure, anyone?). While the talk may run the gamut, from lesbian porn to the Vatican, and Johnny Mathis in between, it's all inspired by the filmmakers' latest memoir, Role Models , a tribute to the real-life saints and sinners who have shaped Waters' ironic, outlandish and totally trashy tastes. Aratani/Japan America Theatre, 244 S. San Pedro St., Little Tokyo; Tues., June 8, 8 p.m.; $25. (213) 680-3700. --D.T.
