Join us during Phoenix Design Week for the Arizona premiere of Beauty is Embarrassing.
Check-in starts at 6:45PM. Movie starts at 7:00PM.
Part biography, part live performance, Beauty is Embarrassing tells the irreverent and inspiring story of this one-of-a-kind visual artist and raconteur. The film traces White’s career from an underground cartoonist in New York’s East Village to his big break as a designer, puppeteer and voice-over actor on Pee-wee’s Playhouse for which he won three Emmys. It follows Wayne’s success designing and animating for other children’s shows like Beakman’s World and music videos for The Smashing Pumpkins and Peter Gabriel through a dark period of struggle and self-reflection before emerging in his present-day incarnation as a respected painter and performer.
