What do Karl Marx and garlic aioli have in common? They're both great with satire. If you're intrigued (and think you'll be hungry next week), stop by the Summit on 16th for the "Dirt Cheap Money Cabaret," presented by Vermont's Bread and Puppet Theater. Founded in 1963, the nonprofit troupe is the mastermind behind those large-scale puppets you've probably seen at political protests over the years. Taking aim at hot topics ranging from billionaire bonuses to U.S. health care, their mission is serious but hardly heavy-handed. Along with a live band, dancing and the aforementioned appearance by Marx, Bread and Puppet will live up to its name with chunks of bread (and spread).

When: 7:30 p.m. Monday, March 29

Where: The Summit on 16th United Methodist Church, Campus
