Trixie Mattel Live at Cork Opera House

Trixie Mattel, Drag Race star will be coming to Cork Opera House on Paddy’s Eve March 16 with her brand-new one-woman comedy show: ‘SKINNY LEGEND’.

“…as we dial down and dig deep into the psyche of the life-size legend. Step back into her pink cowboy boots and see the world through Trixie’s iconic eyes. Expect some music and surrealist comedy that only Trixie Mattel could hot glue together- guitar picking, razor-sharp reads, and hair teased to the sky!”
