Trixie Mattel

Despite all the predictable schlock one might expect from a drag queen modeled after an overly exaggerated version of Barbie, Trixie Mattel has proven herself as a master of surprise. Created by Milwaukee native Brian Michael Firkus as a means of “laughing through the pain” of a childhood riddled by alcoholism and verbal abuse, Mattel ruffled more than a few feathers with a controversial impersonation of Ann Frank on the seventh season of RuPaul’s Drag Race yet still emerged as a fan favorite — sparking debate over what many considered an early elimination (hence the hashtag #justice4Trixie) and ultimately making a triumphant return to the “reality” competition series four episodes later. A guitarist and vocalist who worked as a folk singer before diving into the world of drag, Mattel recently made unexpected headlines by dropping Two Birds — a well-received, straight-up country album “narrating the life of a recently heartbroken cross-dresser” (the video for “Mama Don’t Make Me Put on the Dress Again” pretty much says it all). Rey Lopez Entertainment brings the living doll back to San Antonio for a Monday night production of her one-woman stand-up show Ages 3 and Up.
