This Week's Critics' Picks

Degenerate Arts Ensemble; Bread and Puppet Theatre; Dave Brubeck and Ramsey Lewis.


The legendary, agitprop troupe Bread and Puppet Theater comes to Consolidated Works for just one weekend with its life-size, hand-hewn puppets to tell the story of activist/martyr Rachel Corrie in Daughter Courage. 500 Boren Ave. N., 800-838-3006, $15–$18. 8 p.m. Wed., March 8–Sat., March 11. LYNN JACOBSON


The Degenerate Art Ensemble applies its usual evocative mix of invented instruments and atmospheric Asian dance to the myth of the cuckoo, which lays its eggs in other birds' nests—the usurper bird and the displaced bird grow up in parallel universes. Moore Theatre, 1932 Second Ave., 206-292-ARTS, $11.50–$18.50. 8 p.m. Sat., March 11. GAVIN BORCHERT


When icons get older, they team up. Case in point: Dave Brubeck (pictured) and Ramsey Lewis, a pair of jazz-piano titans who bring their first-ever joint tour to the Paramount Theatre. 911 Pine St., 206-467-5510, $27.50–$42.50. 7 p.m. Sun., March 12. MICHAELANGELO MATOS
