It is the 40th anniversary of the airing of the Star Wars Holiday Special! And time, once again, at The Home For Wayward Girls and Fallen Women for the annual viewing of Cherry's favorite TV show. This year, George Lucas joins us (played by guest star Andy Ross). He claims he is there because, as he has often said, 'If I had the time and a sledgehammer, I would track down every copy of that show and smash it.' But for someone who hates it so much, he seems to revel in singing all the songs! Could it be that he secretly loves the show as much as Cherry does?

Chico's Angels, the comedy drag troupe celebrating their 14th year performing in the bowels of Silver Lake's Casita Del Campo, delivers once again with their latest laugh-filled riot CHICO'S ANGELS 4: CHICAS ARE 4EVER. Think 70's TV classic Charlie's Angels re-envisioned as Latina drag queens at their best (and sometimes tackiest). The Angels have some of the consistently best comic timing seen from any well-oiled, well-coiffed group.
