If you are looking for a treat after the kids go to bed, you are spoiled for choice.

The world according to Jeff Goldblum, for example, uses “ deceptively familiar objects ” such as trainers and bikes as an excuse to share Goldblum at its craziest. Each 30 minute episode is stimulating, eerie, and friendly.
If you love musicals, try Encore! – a reality TV show that brings together the cast of high school musicals to reprise their roles, 10 to 50 years later. While host Kristen Bell doesn’t spend more than a few minutes onscreen throughout the series, that doesn’t matter. The show is smart, the “ cast ” is adorable, and the episodes will let you sing from the rooftops (it’s still self-isolating, right?).
Better yet, Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Hamilton is available to stream on Disney +. With the original Broadway cast of the musical. In fact, the show was taped in 2016 with Miranda in the lead role, giving Broadway fans around the world the best (and cheapest) seat in the house.
Beyoncé’s Black Is King, a visual album that doubles as a musical celebration of black empowerment, shouldn’t be missed either. As a companion to the 2019 album “ The Lion King: The Gift ”, it’s a thought-provoking and truly stunning multimedia masterpiece.
