SAN DIEGO -- “Chico’s Angels,” a spot-on spoofery, will be coming to San Diego on Aug. 12-14 and August 19-21. The Angels are a blend of the Three Stooges, Latino drag queens and some fairly obvious 1970s TV classics.
If you love a campy good time, check out the Angels at the Diversionary Theatre, where they are renting the stage and will be performing with Jai Rodriguez of “Queer Eye For The Straight Guy” fame for the San Diego run of the show.
The Angels work for Chico solving crime around the world with the help of their “Bosley,” “Bossman.” When the girls aren’t fighting crime they can usually be found gallivanting around the country, scantily clad and being fabulous.
Kay Sedia, Frieda Laye and Chita Parol are the best in the business for their price range - which is pesos on the dollar.
Kay, Frieda and Chita sat down with San Diego Gay and Lesbian News recently and dished about how they fight crime, Chico and their expulsion from the police academy.
