Paris Through April 9 There can be little doubt that Henri Cartier-Bresson was the preeminent photojournalist of the 20th century. No one else has demonstrated such mastery of what he memorably dubbed ''the decisive moment": that instant when camera, action, and composition come together unforgettably. Yet Cartier-Bresson did not have to be shooting on the fly to show his greatness as a photographer. Few rival his ability as a portraitist, as this exhibit amply shows. Among the sitters on display here are Edith Piaf, Marilyn Monroe, Jean-Paul Sartre, Samuel Beckett, and Truman Capote (not looking at all like Philip Seymour Hoffman).

London Through April 22 It's long been a theatrical truism that during his later years Arthur Miller was much better appreciated -- and far better performed -- in London than New York. The latest argument for that proposition is this production of ''Resurrection Blues." First staged in 2002, it's a very black comedy that the playwright finished revising a month before his death last year. Set in South America, the play relates what happens when a revolutionary leader is captured, sentenced to be executed (crucified, no less), and the international media pounce on the story. Directing the production is legendary filmmaker Robert Altman, and the starry cast includes Neve Campbell, James Fox, and Matthew Modine.

No style in classical music over the past four decades has matched the staying power, or popular appeal, of Minimalism. With ''Minimalist Jukebox," the Los Angeles Philharmonic offers the first significant survey of Minimalism by a US orchestra. Directing ''Minimalist Jukebox" is one of the movement's foremost figures, composer John Adams.
