Another week means a new search for things to watch and do online.
Every afternoon we’re rounding up some of the best things we’ve found to watch for the evening.
This weekend we told you about a way for you to attend a cocktail party at Downton Abbey, watch “Phantom of the Opera” for free, and attend an opera series at the Met.
Today is 4/20, which means we’ve found a few cannabis-focused events worth taking a look at if you want to virtually celebrate. We also found a way to watch a play at Shakespeare’s Globe Theater in London, and a way you can catch a few tunes at a New York piano bar each night.
Use the arrows at the bottom of the page to navigate through the slideshow to the next suggestion. On the last page, you’ll find a rundown of some of the great things we’ve found in the past that you can experience whenever you want.
Find something amazing we haven’t written about yet? Tell us about it in the comments and we might feature it in a future post.
London’s Globe Theater, a replica of where many of Shakespeare’s plays were originally performed, is rolling out access to six of its productions for free. Each play launches on a Monday and stays live for two weeks before it’s replaced with a new one.
Today’s installment is “Romeo and Juliet,” which launches today and will be available until May 3. On May 4, it will be replaced with “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.”
West Village piano bar Marie’s Crisis might be closed, but the show is still going on. Piano players that would traditionally perform at the bar are live-streaming their sets from home on the bar’s Facebook page each night.
Performances typically run from 4pm-7pm ET and 7:30pm-9pm each night, with a later set typically happening on Saturdays.
To watch you’ll need to join the Marie’s Group Facebook page, which requires you to tell the Admins what your favorite show tune is. The bar is also asking for you to make donations to the performers you listen to if you can in the form of Venmo or PayPal tips.
