Sesame Street Live! Let’s Party!

This weekend, Sesame Street fans can sing and dance along with all their favorite characters — such as Elmo, Abby Cadabby, Big Bird, and Cookie Monster — to a soundtrack of pop ballads and familiar songs, like “I Love Trash” and “C is for Cookie.” Sesame Street Live! takes audience members on a fun, sensory adventure, imparting a valuable lesson about the power of friendship and teamwork, along the way. $20+. Through Jan. 30. Fox Theatre, 2211 Woodward Ave., Detroit; 313presents.com

Mosaic Evolution

Mosaics are an ancient art form, traditionally created from meticulously arranged pieces of stone or colored glass. But over time, mosaic artists have expanded the breadth of their craft, by implementing unique materials, applications, and techniques. Northville Art House exhibition Mosaic Evolution celebrates these developments. No cost. Through Feb. 12. Northville Art House, 215 W. Cady St., Northville; northvillearthouse.org

The Lion King

The Serengeti comes to life on stage, with striking visuals and familiar tunes by Tony Award-winning artists Elton John and Tim Rice. Based on the beloved 1994 Walt Disney film of the same name, The Lion King follows young lion prince Simba in a coming-of-age tale full of hope and adventure. The production has won six Tony Awards and has been viewed by more than 90 million global audience members. $25+. Jan. 27-Feb. 20. Detroit Opera House, 1526 Broadway St., Detroit; broadwayindetroit.com

An Evening with Bruce Dickinson

Though best known as the frontman for iconic heavy metal band Iron Maiden, Bruce Dickinson is a true multi-hyphenate. And his wide-ranging experiences as a motivational speaker, actor, podcaster, New York Times best-selling author, aviation pilot, and international fencer have given him plenty to talk about. An up-close and personal evening with Dickinson will offer a humorous and often satirical first-hand look into the musician’s perspective on the world, complete with anecdotes from his time with Maiden and his daring exploits, as well as some of his darker moments. $35+. Jan. 30. The Fillmore Detroit, 2115 Woodward Ave., Detroit; screamforme.com

The Sicilian Tenors

The Sicilian Tenors have showcased the glory of the Italian tenor voice everywhere from Los Angeles to Las Vegas to New York’s Carnegie Hall. Their stage show delivers a diverse setlist, swinging from the thrilling high notes of “Nessun Dorma” to passion-filled arias from The Phantom of The Opera. But Caruso, Scaccio, and Vitale keep the evening light, interspersing these poignant ballads with bouts of playful humor. $28+. Jan. 28. Andiamo Celebrity Showroom, 7096 E. 14 Mile Road, Warren; andiamoshowroom.com
