Mysteries of the Unseen World
American Museum of Natural History
If science wants to stop getting run out of Real America on a rail, maybe it should stop reminding everyone of facts like this one: There are more organisms teeming on your body at this moment than there are people on earth. That point is made scarily well in Mysteries of the Unseen World, a marvelous look-at-those-micro-beasts freak-out screening every day at the American Museum of Natural History. It’s the museum’s first 3-D digital protection, and its big-screen parade of the teensiest life is a perception-widener: Relish the flutter of butterfly wings slowed way down, and tremble before those fanged cat fleas blown way up. Director Louie Schwartzberg laces the itch-inducing wonders with up-to-this-month science — it’s so arresting it might even win ’em over in Creationism Country.

Best Buy Theater @ 8:00p.m.
Schoolboy Q hasn’t released an album in two years, but those two years have been the biggest of his career regardless. As 2012 ended, the A$AP Rocky–featuring “Hands on the Wheel” gave the L.A. rapper his first spins on New York radio. The following year, his “Collard Greens” and “Man of the Year” both became national hits, and his Macklemore collaboration, “White Walls,” exposed his raspy flow and dense, conflicted lyrics to an entirely new audience. Tonight, following the release of his long-awaited new LP, Oxymoron, said to be even darker than past affairs, he plays the Best Buy Theater with Tennessee’s Isaiah Rashad and Vince Staples, another Californian.

A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder
Walter Kerr Theatre
Any chance to see Tony–winner Jefferson Mays (I Am My Own Wife, Gore Vidal’s The Best Man) on the boards is not to be missed, but his role in A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder should be a treat eight times over. In this story, gentleman Monty (played by Bryce Pinkham) has learned he belongs to a noble family and could become the next Earl of Highhurst, except for one big problem: There are eight relatives ahead of him in line for the title. Mays plays all of the heirs as they meet their untimely deaths. Darko Tresnjak directs Robert L. Freedman and Steven Lutvak’s musical comedy.
