FIRST FRIDAYS*
Charles Darwin would have turned 200 this year. The Natural History Museum celebrates the scientist at its monthly First Friday event. At 5:30 pm take a tour of the Ornithology (bird) Collections with Kimball Garrett; then follow that up with the 6:30 pm book signing and discussion on “Darwin's Evolution” with writer Lyanda Lynn Haupt. If that’s not enough to entice you then stay for the music and (7-10 pm) by The Little Ones and Plants and Animals, and DJ sets by The Phatal DJ and DJ Kutmah.

PREVIEW
La Ronde is an examination of love, passion, sex and heartbreak by Arthur Schnitzler, who penned the play in 1897. It previews tonight at 8 pm the Zephyr Theatre and runs through Feb.1. This original multimedia presentation is delivered in “one-act episodes ranging from serious drama to farce-like fantasies.”
