You owe it to yourself to see this musical rendition of the best low-budget horror saga to ever exist. It has the blessing of both Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell, and it has a hell of a score, with songs such as “All the Men in My Life Keep Getting Killed by Candarian Demons” and “What the Fuck Was That?” If you’re not a horror person, it retains the same comedy of the films, and it’s a musical. If you’re not a musical person, it’s Evil Dead, dude. All performances begin at 8 p.m.; 2301 Woodward Ave., Detroit; olympiaentertainment.com; tickets start at $50.

Edward Gorey’s masterful pen-and-ink drawings that illustrate his captivating books conjure a vaguely Edwardian world of handcars, boater hats, and Dickensian children. With titles such as The Hapless Child, The Loathsome Couple, and The Fatal Lozenge, Gorey’s protagonists often meet an untimely demise. Despite the subject matter, his work transcends the mere macabre, offering instead a dark humor that has found contemporary resonance with cultural phenomena from Goth and steampunk to Lemony Snicket and Tim Burton. Although Gorey’s métier was the illustrated novel, his talent and reach extended to other creative realms. Museum Admission: ArtMembers (Join Now!) FREE, Children 12 & Under FREE, General $10, Seniors (65 and over) $8, Students with ID $6.http://www.cranbrookartmuseum.org/future-exhibitions/
