Oct. 31: Halloween Circus
Just because you’re too old to go trick or treating, doesn’t mean you have to stay home tonight. The Black Cat is hosting a Halloween Circus, which will include costumes, burlesque performances and live music by Jonny Grave & the Tombstones, Sean K. Preston & the Loaded Pistols and Miss Shevaughn & Yuma Wray. You can join the party at 8 p.m.

Oct. 31-Nov. 30: The Woman in Black
Crave a quieter evening? You can see The Woman in Black, which opens tonight at The Keegan Theatre in Northwest. In this adaptation of Susan Hill’s novel by the same name, a lawyer elicits help from a skeptical young actor in an effort to rid himself of the fear that grips his soul. As the pair delves deeper into the lawyer’s darkest memories, the borders between reality and the imagination begin to blur. You can see this ghostly tale through November 30.
