"A John Waters Christmas" is a little decadent, a little sleazy and a whole lot of fun, in a way that only Baltimore's proudest degenerate could get away with. Wonder how the man responsible for "Pink Flamingos" and "Desperate Living" celebrates the holidays? Have your sensibilities merrily shocked as Waters riffs on perverted gifts, true holiday crimes and religious fanaticism. You'll never have more fun being shocked. "A John Waters Christmas" is set for 8 p.m. Dec. 21 at the Patricia and Arthur Modell Performing Arts Center at the Lyric, 110 W. Mount Royal Ave. Tickets, available through Ticketmaster at 800-551-7328 or ticketmaster.com, are $35-$65. Information: 410-685-5086 or lyricoperahouse.com.
