Craig Ferguson

Sun., Nov. 25, 8 p.m.

Great Scott! Though it has been just four years since the Scottish American comedian stepped away from The Late Late Show desk, former host, \king of quirk, and flirt Craig Ferguson has found a new, albeit, transient stage. Since taking his U.S. citizenship test on air, Ferguson has fleshed out a stand-up routine full of work-related celebrity encounters (including the time he pissed off Kate Winslet), as well as snarky, quick-witted observations on everything from unbelievable headlines, his struggle for political correctness, and that time Fabio got speared by a goose while riding a rollercoaster. $39.50+

You can’t keep this elf on the shelf. OK, so Will Ferrell may not be reprising his role as everyone’s favorite oversized non-elf elf, Buddy, but returning this year to the Fox Theatre is ELF: The Musical, a fresh take on Buddy’s journey from the North Pole to the Big Apple in search of his birth father, true identity, and some dang spaghetti and maple syrup. Inspired by the 2003 new Christmas classic, ELF: The Musical is a classic in its own right with a slew of original songs, holiday hijinks, and lots and lots of sugar. $35+

Kate Silvio: 'You can never go home again'

Through Nov. 24, 6 p.m.

In a new solo show, artist Kate Silvio — a woman “on the cusp of what society defines as ‘middle age,’” according to a press release — offers new works that reflect upon aging, self-acceptance, and motherhood. “How did I get here?” Silvio writes in an artist statement. “Was it an action or a reaction? The realization is that you may not be able to recall the exact moment when you made these decisions, but it must be you who made them.” The sculptor, a College for Creative Studies alum who now lives in Grand Rapids, creates multimedia works made from metals, rubber, felt, and wood, among other materials.
