Regardless of whether you’re doing this due to job loss, working from home, or otherwise participating in the mass effort to make sure, you’ve probably been bored once or twice while living in quarantine.
Fortunately, some very talented people have created very special performances and experiences that you can enjoy to cope with the new normal, and that don’t break the rules of social distancing. In addition, some services extend their free trial periods or drop their paywalls so that you can access their content.
