Filmmaker John Waters earned his reputation outside the mainstream. And he helped put his hometown of Baltimore on the map as a hipster hot spot. But his outsider status eventually translated into hundreds of millions of dollars, and his work slowly became part of the mainstream.

Fresh on the heels of the release of his latest book, "Role Models," John Waters will perform his one-man show "This Filthy World" at Centerstage Theater in Baltimore on Thursday, June 24.

He speaks with Stephanie Kaye about whether the world really is as filthy as he says it is, and how he helped put the 'charm' in Charm City.
