Every year, puppetry runs amok at XPERIMENTAL PUPPET THEATER. On MAY 18, the Center for Puppetry Arts' evening of wild, adults-only puppet shows spills out from its Downstairs Theater to include film and pre-show art installations. Where else can you catch works as diverse as the samurai-style biblical grudge match David, Goliath and Saul, the grotesque parade inspired by Belgian painter James Ensor in The Frightful Musicians, and a vaudeville escape artist in Who? Dini! $10-$12. Thurs.-Sat., 8 p.m.; Sun., 5 p.m. Through May 21. 1404 Spring St. 404-873-3391. www.puppet.org.
