Step right up and get your tickets for the emotional rollercoaster that is April’s theatre offerings. The comedy highs are extra high like Broadway’s Best III with all the great songs from musicals and none of that pesky dialogue. But the drama lows are there, too, with shows like Bent, which explores gay life in Nazi Germany. Not even Prozac could make that subject cheery. For those more ambivalent about the happy/sad mood swing, try Marvin’s Room. Whether you end up with laugh lines, puffy cry-eyes or maybe a bit of both, you’re certain to be entertained. Marvin’s Room April…

Decorating your windows is like accessorizing – a little goes a long way. (You hear that, Mr. cubic zirconia earrings, bracelet and matchy-matchy oversized belt buckle!?) But when we laid eyes upon the “Until Dawn” curtains by Dutch designer Tord Boontjes, we knew that our drapes were moving up the ranks from window-supporting cast member to spotlight-stealing diva. Made of Tyvek, a hard-to-tear but easy-to-cut paper material, “Until Dawn” curtains look like a cracked-out version of the paper snowflakes you made as a kid. Except this time, instead of simple geometric shapes there are intricately laser-cut flowers and animals. Not…

Travel is like crack for the gays. We want it all the time, and we don’t care how much it costs. But not all of us have the vacation time of a schoolteacher and the budget of a CEO. So when we go on holiday, we want every second to count, whether it’s sitting under an umbrella sipping cocktails on the beach with a Jackie Collins novel or shaking a tail feather at 3:00 a.m. at the local nightclub. When heading to a new destination, it’s important to research the gay scene. There’s nothing worse than spending six days and…

Smell that? It just reeks of equinox. And with this weekend’s outings you might just get a whiff of the unexpected, too. Delight the senses with eau de Tuna (of the Greater variety), the sparkle of Diamond (as in Neil) and a touchy tank full of stingrays (Crikey!). If that’s not enough, you can tiptoe through the tulips. Just make sure to wear your rubbers – in case of Spring Showers, of course. Tuna Does Vegas Through March 30 Jaston Williams and Joe Sears are back with their first new show in 10 years, proving two of the fundamentals of…

There are so many ways to demonstrate your undying devotion for that special someone. You can send roses (yawn), get your tuchas tattooed with his name or pull a Glenn Close in Fatal Attraction and boil his bunny just to show you care. But if you are looking for a way to really get his attention, without getting served with a pesky restraining order, it’s all about The Cookie Company’s Billboard Cookie. A far cry from the goodies mama used to make, these are desserts 2.0 that feature a photo realistic image made of edible icing on a tasty sugar…

Friends don’t let dogs drive. Or cats, for that matter. Even though they’d probably be less dangerous behind the wheel than that guy you saw on Central Expressway this morning talking on his iPhone and shaving, it just ain’t right. But your pets are busy and they have places to go, things to pee on. And you don’t always have the time to get them where they need to be. With Pet Taxi Service from Taddy’s, your dog or cat will never miss an appointment. Think of Taddy’s as a personal chau-fur. Whether your fuzzy baby has a day at…

Schadenfreude – it’s German for “happiness at the misfortune of others,” and we like to think of it as one of our best qualities. Apparently we are not alone. T-shirt makers Y-Que has jumped on the malicious glee bandwagon and created an entire line of tees devoted to celebrity mug shots. Really, each one is a winner in its own right, but there are some definite stand outs. Macaulay Culkin is certain to be a hit, even though he’s not doing the requisite hand-to-cheeks Home Alone pose. Or go the Hugh Grant route and wow everyone with your pop culture…

Sexy and 20/20 haven’t likely been uttered in the same sentence since Hugh Downs and Barbara Walters last teamed up. Perfect vision, however, is always in fashion. And whether you need something fabulous for your far-sightedness or just a pair of bodacious bifocals, the new West Village optical boutique, Optique, has some kick-ass frames to perk up your peepers. Even if you’ve shelled out a couple grand for laser eye surgery, you just might want to pick up a pair of glasses simply for their stylishness (plus, it’s always more fun to accessorize with something you truly don’t need). And…

A pack of dogs, a group of bears, a Christian pop star, several hundred lesbians and the Easter Bunny walk into a bar. Believe it or not, that’s not a joke setup. It’s what’s in store over the next seven days of springtime fun. Easter in Lee Park Sunday, March 23, 11:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. It’s the 23rd anniversary of one of the city’s most festive celebrations. Register for the Pooch Parade at 11:00 a.m., watch the parade of adoptable dogs at 12:45 p.m., followed by the pooch costume parade at 1:00 p.m. Then relax until 3:00 p.m. when…

Why it seems like just yesterday Fred Rogers was teaching us the importance of a midday outfit change. Who would have guessed that Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, which made its television debut in 1968, would become the impetus for the modern day Metrosexual movement? After all, he was the founding forefather of fashionable footwear. And in honor of what would have been Mr. Rogers’ 80th birthday on Thursday, March 20, Family Communications Inc. (the non-profit agency started by Rogers himself) is asking everyone worldwide to wear their favorite sweater. Whether it’s an Indie-inspired cardigan, a crochet number that grandma whipped up…
