4. DVD: Happily Divorced: Season One
Fran Drescher gets to once again display her dazzling comic skills opposite John Michael Higgins in the first season of her TV Land sitcom (now on DVD) produced by her now-out ex-husband, Peter Marc Jacobson, and loosely based on their life together. Also, Drescher will earn her bona fides as an icon to the LGBT community when she officiates the weddings of three gay couples March 6 in New York City. Watch her answer your dating questions here.
3. DVD: The Skin I Live In
Pedro Almodóvar breaks away from the candy-colored kitsch that's the trademark of many of his best films with this baroque horror thriller (now on DVD) that reunites the auteur with his sexiest discovery, Antonio Banderas. The Spanish heartthrob is magnetic as a mad doctor who uses his isolated estate to hide a suicidal patient in a body stocking. That's just the beginning of this complex, often witty, frequently shocking cinematic labyrinth.
2. PERFORMANCE: Miss Coco Peru: There Comes a Time
As a benefit for L.A.’s Gay and Lesbian Center, the relentlessly talented Peru will reprise her hit show from last spring in which she finds rich comic material in the memorial for her late pal Bea Arthur and her own her turn as the original Angel in the “backers’ audition” of Rent. At the center's Renberg Theatre through March 4.
