Bard Spiegeltent hosts John Waters, Sandra Bernhard

Bard’s Spiegeltent presents a pair of cultural icons on consecutive nights in the surreal environment of the traveling Weimar performance tent. On Friday, July 7, the legendary camp filmmaker John Waters (Cry-Baby, Pink Flamingos, Hairspray) launches the Spiegeltent season with his one-man show, This Filthy World. Part confession, part vaudeville, This Filthy World takes on taboos with charisma and charm, resulting in a hilarious and uncensored evening with an American treasure. Tickets ($45 and up) remain for the first of his two shows, at 6 p.m.

On Saturday, July 8, Sandra Bernhard presents her piece Sandra Monica Blvd., a journey to find the soul of America via the backroads and the byways on a gas station map, with a soundtrack that you might find on an AM radio station. Shows begin at 6 and 8:30 p.m. Tickets cost $45 and up.

Bard College is located in Annandale-on-Hudson. For tickets and additional information, visit
