The Agony and Ecstasy of Steve Jobs

Mike Daisey, the king of the lyrical rant and the writer-performer of last season's funny and illuminating "The Last Cargo Cult," returns to Woolly Mammoth Theatre for another idiosyncratic monologue, this one taking on a wizard of Silicon Valley. Tonight’s 8 p.m. performance is pay-what-you-can; the theater notes that lines begin forming around 5 p.m.


This Balkans by way of Denver quartet, best known for its work on the “Little Miss Sunshine” soundtrack, hits the 9:30 Club with a mix of Eastern European folk and indie rock from its latest album, “100 Lovers.” Doors open at 7 p.m.

Paul Taylor Dance Company

Taylor has a uniquely theatrical, witty style, which he combines with dancers of uncommon virtuosity in a trio of three recent works: "Three Dubious Memories," "Brief Encounters" and a tribute to vaudeville, "Also Playing." The performance at the Kennedy Center starts at 8 p.m.
