FRIDAY Party Down Megan Mullally (“Will & Grace”) stars in this comedy series about Hollywood caterers with dreams of making it big.

Everybody knows “Dreamgirls” is the story of Diana Ross and the Supremes, but in this post-“Behind the Music” world, it could be about so many artists.

You wouldn’t think Sam Van would have any trouble getting a date. He’s smart, fit and cute. (Heck, he’s the kind of guy I’d like if I went for that XY-chromosome type.) But after meeting guys online who were apparently turned off once they saw his picture, Van started a dating site for gay Asian men, www.loveGAM.com. PGN caught up with him as he was waiting for a tennis date.

THEATER Avenue Q The Tony Award-winning hit featuring people, puppets and irreverent songs runs through June 20 at Kimmel’s Academy of Music, 240 S.

“I don’t know how we’d do the festival without him. He’s the logistics guy. I take care of the entertainment and the parade and he does all the rest,” said Franny Price, the more visible half of the duo responsible for organizing Philadelphia’s Pride Day this Sunday. Price is referring, of course, to Chuck Volz. “He makes sure all the vendors and staff are in the right places and that everything works. Chuck knows Penn’s Landing better then the people who work there. What’s rare and wonderful is that Chuck is the kind of guy who will do all of the work and not take any of the credit. Usually, it’s the other way around. But he is content to let others shine; it’s the work that’s important to him.”

PGN decided to shine a little light on the man who has quietly kept one of Philly’s favorite events going for more than 17 years.
