Have a Theatrical Halloween!

The best Halloween parties and events the NYC theater scene has to offer.

Looking for a good thrill on Halloween night?

Due to Hurricane Sandy, a number of events in and around New York City have been canceled or postponed – including the Village Halloween Parade and Village Halloween Costume Ball. A late addition to the canceled show list is Sleep No More, which had hoped to go on tonight, but eventually decided it would have to cancel.

But there’s still plenty to do. TheaterMania has compiled a list of NYC-based Halloween treats, and hope to add to it throughout the day as we hear back about events that plan to go ahead.

Cadavaret (54 Below)
A host of Broadway favorites – including Robin De Jesus, Chester Gregory, and Da’Vine Joy Randolph – perform showtunes from such musicals as Little Shop of Horrors, Sweeney Todd, Wicked, and Damn Yankees. (Click here to read TheaterMania’s previous feature on Cadavaret.)

Joe Iconis’s Rock and Roll Haunted Halloween Special IV (Laurie Beechman Theatre)
The award-winning songwriter gathers together some of his favorite performers to sing tunes from scary musicals, cuts from obscure horror movies, and even some Halloween-themed Iconis originals.

The Phantom of the Opera (Majestic Theater)
The longest-running musical in Broadway history centers on the hideously deformed title character who dabbles in murder and seduction.

Silence! The Musical (Elektra Theatre)
This hilarious parody based on the Academy Award winning film pits rookie FBI agent Clarice Starling against Hannibal “The Cannibal” Lecter as they match wits to catch serial killer Buffalo Bill.

Times Scare Haunted House (Times Scare)
There’s no guide to take you through this horror-themed attraction in the heart of the theater district. Expect the unexpected.

Wicked (Gershwin Theatre)
The witches of Oz get a make-over in this hit musical that puts the green-skinned Elphaba at the center of the story, based upon the popular novel by Gregory Maguire.
