Are You Still Afraid of the Dark? 

When: Fridays. Continues through Nov. 11 2016
Price: $12
For those of you who want your scary stories not too scary, here's a tribute to Are You Afraid of the Dark?, the long-running Nickelodeon series from the 90s that combined eerie urban legends and ghost stories with bracing lessons about friendship. This Midnight Society of five talented performers throws in improv comedy too. The team works well together: the characters and story are mostly coherent, the jokes are funny, and everyone gets a chance to shine. If the most recent tale, "The Morbid Golf Course," wasn't exactly terrifying, well, that's a minor failing. The opening act, Horror of Terror, a group that creates improvised horror flicks, is slower, more awkward, and not nearly as funny. —Aimee Levitt
