Avenue Q

Mondays-Sundays. Continues through Oct. 7

Boasting one of the most unique warnings in Broadway history, Avenue Q wants you to know that it is full of puppet sex — full-on puppet sex. The debaucherous “triple crown” (that’s best musical, best book, and best score) Tony Award-winning musical spins PBS into XXX territory. The show follows puppet Princeton, a broke college graduate and his search for purpose. Each of Avenue Q’s 11 puppet characters is animated and voiced by actors in full view of the audience, making for a four-dimensional theatrical experience. Avenue Q is not just raunchy — it’s delightfully inappropriate. Want proof? Catch musical numbers “If You Were Gay,” “The Internet Is for Porn,” and “Everyone’s a Little Bit Racist.” $17-$28

4U: A Symphonic Celebration of Prince

Fri., Sept. 28, 8 p.m.

The untimely death of icon Prince Rogers Nelson has left a Corvette-sized hole in our collective hearts. The last time Prince performed in Detroit he took to the Fox Theatre stage for a sold-out performance announced just days before as part of his Hit and Run Tour. Fittingly, just three years later, the only Prince Estate-approved tribute will honor the Purple One on the same stage. 4U: A Symphonic Celebration of Prince will draw from his extensive music catalog as performed by a full symphony orchestra, as curated by Prince superfan, Questlove, along with a live band accompanied by archival photos and video footage. $29.50+

Russell A. Taylor is better known by his moniker Satori Circus — the chalk-faced cabaret performer who, for the better part of three decades, has both seduced and confounded audiences. Taylor is both the creative director and main performer in what can only be described as performance art meets rock opera. By fusing music with pantomime, film-inspired elements, spoken word, slapstick, and a veil of hyper-subversive sexuality, Satori Circus has the freak flag on lock. These back-to-back, career-spanning performances will include special guests as well as vignettes from his most recent piece, "Stroke." $20

Star Wars: A New Hope

Fri., Sept. 28, 8 p.m., Sat., Sept. 29, 8 p.m. and Sun., Sept. 30, 3 p.m.
,

Long before roly-poly android BB-8 and Adam Driver’s super-square torso, there was Star Wars: A New Hope — the remarkable journey that sparked a worldwide fascination with a galaxy far, far away. The first film in the beloved franchise introduces us to a remarkable cast of characters, all of whom search for meaning as they confront their own struggles with light and dark. Perhaps one of the most integral characters in the film is one that is not seen, but heard. The iconic Oscar-winning score by John Williams will be performed by the Detroit Symphony Orchestra in time with a screening of the timeless film. $50+
