‘Tis the COVID Season: Best Entertainment Bets 2020


There is a nip in the air, a droopy pumpkin on the porch, a pie in the oven, and even in this year of all years, still an occasional concert in the hall.

Even in these socially distanced times, the season offers a rich array of performances, both holiday-themed and more broadly conceived, in the city, towns, and frosty villages, casting their spells over laser-sync’d arenas and candle-lit chapels, from locals to legends, no matter how tired and recycled, orchestras, bands, duos, soloists, extravaganzas, classic combis, counter-intuitive collaborations, travelling troupes, raconteurs, and franchise films.

Keep a keen eye and ear for these trending tickets, as we reach across the lonely distances, if only for an hour.
