  • Women & Their Work: Violent Delights

    Ann Wood's fantastic art incorporates two- and three-dimensional pieces – entire taxidermied deer, for instance – into a rococo outcropping of landscape that references topiaries, floral bouquets, and pastry decorating. But, note: The death and decay lurking below the surface or hovering nearby is, you might say, more than just the icing on this complex cake. Recommended. Through Nov. 17.

    Women & Their Work, 1710 Lavaca, 512/477-1064

  • Toil and Trouble

    Subtitled "A Troubling Turn on Shakespeare's Macbeth," here's the latest from Trouble Puppet Theatre Company, the bunraku professionals who've brought us fantastic adaptations of Upton Sinclair's The Jungle, Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, Russell Hoban's Riddley Walker, and more. This dark and bloody tale is adapted and directed by Connor Hopkins – with music by Graham Reynolds, lighting by Stephen Pruitt, sound design by Buzz Moran, and imagery by Chris Owen – for a classically twisted night of ghosts, witches, and murder most foul. (Pro tip: Ask about their opening-night special.) Oct. 31-Nov. 18. Wed.-Sat., 8pm; Sun., 6pm. $10-25

    Salvage Vanguard Theater, 2803 Manor Rd., 512/474-7886
