When you really think about it, the concept behind Traces isn’t all that original. Over the past several years, shows that specialize in acrobatics, circus-like theatrics, stunts and aerialists have become all the rave, but few capture the intimacy and edge-of-your-seat attention as this show from the Montreal-based 7 Fingers (or Les 7 Doigts de la Main). With only seven cast members to pull off the challenging feats, Traces is a solid 90-minute marvel of impressiveness from otherwise ordinary-appearing young adults — only they clearly aren’t, as they send themselves flipping, flying and tumbling toward risky obstacles, all for the pleasure of a safely seated audience $20 and up

Lovers of irreverence can rejoice greatly, for the potty-mouthed puppets of Avenue Q are bringing their song-and-angst routine to Theatre Charlotte, May 17–June 2. Recent college grad Princeton is the newest tenement tenant on this queer city block, wondering how he can parlay an English degree into a livelihood while instantly smitten — how could he not be? — by equally anxious and awkward Kate Monster. The song list is self-recommending to anyone who has ever suffered through the varnished truths of Sesame Street and Mister Rogers, including such hits as “It Sucks to Be Me,” “Everyone’s A Little Bit Racist,” and the imperishable “The Internet Is for Porn.” Blue-chipper Billy Ensley is directing a formidable cast that stars Andy Faulkenberry as Princeton and KC Roberge as Kate. Genders be damned, the supporting cast includes Matt Kenyon as Lucy the Slut and Veda Covington as Gary Coleman. Yes, that Gary Coleman. $25-$27
