Scary stories about madness, S&M and the ghosty tales of our youth are popping up on stages all around town. ’Tis the season for indoor entertainment with maybe a touch of the spooky. Trick or treat: Here are three new shows this weekend:

Avenue Theater, now back in the hands of John Ashton after a hiatus of several years, is going through some changes. Ashton says he’s shaking up the venue’s season, redlining some shows and adding others (what those will be is still up in the air) with a goal of raising the quality at Avenue. In the meantime, the theater is not treading water: Up next is the previously scheduled Equus, Peter Shaffer’s powerful drama about a disturbed teen and his psychiatrist, who has troubles of his own. It's directed by Warren Sherrill and stars Paul Borillo and UNC drama student Spencer Althoff. Check out Avenue’s new look; discounted tickets will be offered for the preview on Thursday, October 29.
