Oooh, spooooky — The Adler Planetarium is running a 360-degree Halloween Show: The Curse of the Blood Moon. Get $5 tickets (+ service fees) at Goldstar! This looks really cool:
Who knows what lurks in the dark planetarium? For one night only, terror takes over the Adler’s Grainger Sky Theater with The Curse of the Blood Moon. This Halloween fright show combines live theater, 360-degree visualizations and hair-raising drama. You’ll explore the autumnal night sky as a live guide recounts historic cosmic events — from planetary alignments, to meteor showers and comets — that unnerved ancient civilizations and resulted in fatal outcomes. In a unique blend of special effects, audio design and dramatic live theater, you’ll witness horror unfolding all around you in the oldest planetarium in the Western Hemisphere. If you survive the blood moon’s curse, you can continue the frightening fun with a Scream Photo Booth, Museum Flashlight Tour and a Slime Science demo.

Jonathan Larson’s acclaimed Broadway hit Rent follows a year in the life of a group of penniless young artists and musicians on New York City’s Lower East Side, struggling to survive and create under the shadow of HIV/AIDS. Winner of the Tony Award for Best Musical and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, this timeless and romantic story, based on Puccini’s La Bohème, is brought to vivid life through its modern rock score, including such favorites as “La Vie Bohème,” “What You Own” and the showstopper, “Seasons of Love.”

Based on journalist Mitch Albom’s real-life friendship with his favorite college professor, Tuesdays With Morrie chronicles the lessons Albom learns during visits while his mentor and friend is dying from Lou Gehrig’s disease, or ALS. The two delve into the themes of life, love, wealth, aging, dependence, peace and death. It’s through these weekly visits that Albom realizes just how much he still has to learn about values and priorities. Albom’s 1997 book by the same name has sold more than 14 million copies worldwide to date, was adapted into a successful film in 1999, and premiered as an off-Broadway play, written by Albom himself, in 2001.
