But whether you’re doing so because of a job loss, working from home situation or otherwise taking part in the mass effort to stay safe, chances are you’ve been bored once or twice while living under quarantine.

Thankfully, some very talented people have been creating extra-special performances and experiences that you can enjoy to help you cope with the new normal and that don’t break any social distancing rules. Additionally, some services are extending their free trial periods or dropping their paywalls in order for you to access their content.
