William Shakespeare once wrote, “April hath put a spirit of youth in everything.” That certainly rings true April 30 as students at Philadelphia University gear up for their annual fashion design show, “Fashion Fantasy,” at the Academy of Music, 240 S. Broad St. It’s an amazing showcase that is completely run by the students and introduces the best and the brightest of the future world of fashion. PGN took time to speak to Andrew Van Sant, co-producer of the event.

THEATER Birdy The Centre Theater presents the story of two Philly boys who go to war, then try to come back home physically and mentally, through April 26, 208 Dekalb St.


THEATER At Home at the Zoo The first play by out playwright Edward Albee is staged through April 19 at Suzanne Roberts Theatre, 480 S.

“In a Dream,” a remarkable documentary about the Philadelphia artist/muralist Isaiah Zagar, belongs in the company of “Capturing the Friedmans” and “Tarnation,” two other excellent real-life “home movies.

You know how you get that uncomfortable knot in the pit of your gut when you run into someone you haven’t seen in a long time and you’re freaking out because they’ve changed their look to something they think is the bomb but you think is a hot mess? Maybe got some bad collagen, botox, a jacked-up new do or adopted a really unflattering aesthetic, but you just want to get the hell out of there because you know their new look is going to come up and you’re too much in shock to lie and pretend you know what they’re trying to do?

Chris Cornell’s new album, “Scream,” is the sonic equivalent of that moment.
