What's On: Halloween and other ghoulish delights

It's Halloween weekend. But why should the kids get to have all the fun?! There are many seasonal options for adults as well. Here are some of them:


The (Improvised) Shining
Oct 30
Bad Dog Theatre

If you know the Stephen King novel, on which the classic film was based, this will be a lot of fun. If you don't, it will still be a lot of fun! Organizers ask you to look on as the "Torrence family's eventful stay at the Overlook Hotel [turns] into a hilariously creepy show."

Good Evening: A Night of Improvised Suspense
Oct 31
Bad Dog Theatre

"In a world where birds attack children, motel owners stab women and Jimmy Stewart stares out a window; what horrors will befall our actors on this night of improvised suspense?" ask the show organizers.
