Johnny Depp: a Retrospective on Late-Stage Capitalism

Join Johnny Depp – pre-teen heart-throb turned wino forever – for a retrospective on every film in his entire career, even the ones we didn’t watch, in order to ask… what happened? Bring your Edward Scissorhand poems, your Gilbert Grape anecdotes and Jack Sparrow memorabilia to toss onto the shrine turned dumpster fire Depp has created for himself. Part ritual and part drunken singalong, Johnny Depp: A Retrospective features rum, promiscuity and $30,000 worth of candles which we can pay for to watch the rich consume us all.
"Surrounded by enthusiastic Deppean super fans who had seen most of his films and who had fallen in and out of love with him since adolescence, I felt as out-of-place as a Puritan wearing a winter coat at a nudist beach. And yet, I enjoyed the evening... I had no idea what it was all about. Call me crazy,
but I loved the show.”
"...a hilarious look at an icon of 90s cinema pop culture invites us to look critically at our support of such icons."
"...a case study on the amount of ego and money steered into self-destruction"
