THEATER: You still have a couple of weeks to catch Britain's Kneehigh Theater Group's The Wild Bride at Berkeley Rep, which was extended through the 22nd. SFist Jay enjoyed the production, which he says takes "a particularly dark (and arguably feminist) fairy tale from the Brothers Grimm called 'The Girl Without Hands,' and views it through a Southern Gothic lens, complete with banjo-and-bass bluegrass songs, and a lot of dancing." (8 p.m., Berkeley Repertory Theatre, 2025 Addison Street)

TALK: Obama advisor and MIT economist Jonathan Gruber will discuss his latest book, What It Is, Why It's Necessary, How It Works, which uses comics to explain current and proposed policies. (7 p.m., Jewish Community Center of San Francisco, 3200 California Street)

COMEDY: Three-time Iron Comic champion Sean Keane headlines this week's Eric Show, which will also feature performances by local comics Jason Dove, Josh Marcus, and Shanti Charan, and a special interview and Q&A with Sean following the performance. (8 to 10 p.m., Milk Bar, 1840 Haight St)
