Recommendations for things to do in NYC in October?

Mr. Stardust and I are planning a long weekend trip to New York City in late October. I want to make sure we have a great time there.
A few of the things I'm already thinking about doing: visiting the High Line, taking in a Moth event or perhaps a Dances of Vice event, going to The Strand for books. Mr. Stardust likes musicals, and he wants to see Wicked. I prefer Shakespeare. Will there be other events/places that have special appeal for geeky/gothy people we should look at?
We are also interested in kinky shopping or activities, so we may stop in at Purple Passion or other similar places. Recommendations along those lines are sought.
Also, if you are aware of restaurants that cater to a low-carb/paleo lifestyle, I'd love to hear recommendations. I know most places will let you get the food without the starchy sides, but if there are places known for quality meat (no shellfish, please) and veg, I'd like to hear more.
