SF Weekly theater critic Jeffrey Edalatpour is back on the show this week to talk about holiday and counter-holiday plays around the Bay Area. Plus three world premieres from the choreographers Garrett and Moulton, a fire fundraiser at the Schulz Museum, and great indie folk-rock from the Barr Brothers.

Cont. through Dec. 17: Bright Star is a post-war fairy tale set in the South, with a lovely score and a breakout performance by Carmen Cusack

Cont. through Dec. 17: Playwright Lauren Gunderson spins a tale of romance for the brainy in Miss Bennett: Christmas at Pemberley.

Cont. through Jan 14: Making a deal with the devil in The Black Rider; what could possibly go wrong?

Cont. through Jan. 14: Watch on the Rhine is a timely play about the dangers of not intervening in the fight against fascism.

Dec. 14-16: Garrett + Moulton make dances that are like Rubik’s Cubes, colorful movement puzzles that snap into perfection.

Dec. 8-10: Gregory Porter may look goofy, but his singing is serious and sublime.

Dec. 9: The Schulz Museum in Santa Rosa hosts a fundraiser for fire relief with some of the Bay Area’s top graphic artists.

Dec. 13: The Barr Brothers, the pride of Providence R.I, offer a fresh take on indie folk-rock
