The best theater to stream anytime
With Broadway not starting up again until 2021, most of the theatrical productions that you can catch at the moment are recordings. And while you can still tune into the many live shows and offerings we highlight in our weekly roundup of the best live theater to stream each day , there is also plenty of streaming theater, dance and music that's available to watch whenever you feel like it. So we’ve put together a big list of the best shows you can watch anytime. (As a bonus: Most are also free!)
Editors’ essentials

Things To Do Editor
Hidden from busy Vanderbilt Avenue in Prospect Heights, Olmsted’s backyard is a leafy oasis for those not into the dining-on-the-street scene. The deli pickle fried chicken and the BYO-BLT are both sure to satisfy.
Grab a booze-infused slushy at Slush Astoria, which offers nearly two dozen frozen cocktails and dessert drinks to cool off with. Its Jamaican Punch (Pina colada, mango, dark rum and grenadine) is refreshing and its Banana Mudslide (ice cream, banana, coffee liqueur, Irish cream syrup and vodka) is a real treat.
Sputnik Yoga, famous for its disco yoga sessions, is holding classes across the city, from Rockaway Beach and Astoria Park to Bed-Stuy and Chelsea Piers. Get your fitness fix in the great outdoors.
Order this lovingly-baked challah over Instagram
Dolly Meckler’s new venture, Challah Dolly, began when she began turning to baking challah rather than sourdough at the height of lockdown during spring. (She couldn’t find any yeast.) Surprisingly, her humorous vlogs and documentation of the process resulted in a following eager to bite into the loaves themselves. She’s now baking challah like crazy out of her Upper East Side apartment and currently has three delicious varieties available to purchase through Instagram: plain ($10), everything ($12) and honey cinnamon ($10).
The best Labor Day Weekend getaways
Well… that was a weird summer! And now, believe it or not, we’re already nearing the end of it. The weekend after next is Labor Day, so now’s the time to start planning a getaway for the holiday. Check out our full list of great trip ideas to celebrate the end of summer, including the two fun, escape-the-city ideas below:
See art in the Berkshires
This region of Massachusetts is full of amazing art opportunities. Check out true Americana art at the Norman Rockwell Museum, the fantastic architecture and magnificent collection of theClark Art Institute and the largest collection of contemporary visual and performing arts in the country at MASS MoCa.
Stroll the quaint streets of New Hope
This Bucks County jewel is unhurried and unassuming, with indie boutiques (onetime East Village staple Love Saves the Day), seasonal-focused eateries (Tastebuds) and forget-all-your-troubles B&Bs galore. We also suggest cruising on a rented bike down the Delaware Canal towpath.

Grab a pay-what-you-want vegan curry bowl tomorrow
The café and bar Short Stories on Bowery has introduced a new way to help out their fellow New Yorkers. A few weeks ago, they began offering pay-what-you-want vegan curry bowls on Wednesdays for those who can use a little extra help right now. “We’re in a completely different reality than we were last year,” says Ashwin Deshmukh, a co-owner and general manager. “But our job is still to take care of people. ” The curry is similar to a Japanese-style version that tends to have a more stew-like consistency, but they've added their own touches with curry leaves, ginger and coconut milk. They cook up different vegetables depending on the week.
What’s on at the Brooklyn Museum
This week, museums across the city are finally beginning to open at 25 percent capacity, and the Brooklyn Museum has announced that the institution will be joining them on September 12. "We are thrilled to again open our doors to our visitors," said Anne Pasternak, the museum's Shelby White and Leon Levy director. "In a time of great uncertainty and profound isolation, I am hopeful that visitors can find comfort and inspiration at the Museum.” We’ve got a look at the full slate of exhibitions that will be on view when the museum reopens its doors, including the Studio 54: Night Magic that was cut short due to the pandemic and a new KAWS exhibit.
