General admission is $12; seniors and students, $10; children 6-12, $6; under 6, free. (New York Coliseum, B'way and 59th St.)
BEAUTY TIPS: The Beauty &;the Beast Worldwide Newsletter, called The Beauty Bulletin, asked Marc Kudisch who plays "Gaston" at the Palace Theatre for a beauty tip. His advice: "Stretching. True power and grace is only achieved through length and fluidity of muscle. I stretch before I go to bed at night to release any stress from the day. This will assure you of better 'beauty' rest."
