“Star Wars and the Power of Costume”

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

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+
