things to do this weekend


When “Fat Ham,” an adaptation of James Ijames’ “Hamlet,” set in the southern United States, debuted as a streaming-only production at the Wilma Theater in Philadelphia last year, my colleague Jesse Green praised it as “a rare leap that actually takes off.” I did. This week’s ‘Fat Ham’ won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and started performing at New York’s Public Theater.

I’m listening until I can see Companion Playlist Ijames and the play’s director, Saheem Ali, have curated on Spotify. Includes selections from Emily King, Radiohead and Joan Armatrading. How about making a soundtrack for the week?

Another contender: “This is a photo” by Kevin Morby. Grayson Haver Currin describes it as “a confident 45-minute sha-shei through fragile piety and existential reflection, melodic folklore and clapping souls.” Or make it with Bad Bunny’s “Un Verano Sin Ti” and repeat all summer long.

You can also stick to the Pulitzer theme and prepare a new album by Kendrick Lamar, the first in five years. (He won the Pulitzer Prize for Music in 2018.) Then listen to the poet Ada Limón share his work. Award Winner of the YearCheck out Diane Seuss, and Limón’s new collection, “The Hurting Kind.”

This weekend I want spring weather where I can stop the temptation and commit myself. Wherever you are, no matter the season, you want to be able to go outside to see what’s going on. There is a new production in Detroit of Anthony Davis’ first opera, “X: The Life and Times of Malcolm X”. Lauryn Hill, Usher and TLC headlines in Las Vegas lovers and friends festival. There Grilled Cheese Festival in Sacramento. A three-week art festival in Brussels. A piano bar revival is underway in New York. (A song that enchants the entire room? “A Thousand Miles.” by Vanessa Carlton.)

You can think about planning a trip for the next few months. Perhaps a historic resort in Mexico? A nightlife tour of Ibiza? Check out the latest news from Rome. And in outer space. Or stay on-site and make breakfast for dinner with one of 24 egg recipes (Melissa Clark picked out her favourites below), and in Sally Rooney’s “Conversations with Friends”, which debuts in Hulu on Sunday, Admire the dreamy depiction of Ireland.

What did you plan for the weekend? tell me about it

The splendid New York weather that lasted for several days gave me spring fever, making me want to spend all my time outside, not in the kitchen, as I do more often. At this time, the egg comes to the rescue. Eggs are not only a symbol of spring, they are quick and easy to cook and versatile. Celebrate eggs, as evidenced by New York Times Cooking’s latest special package. For example, Eric Kim’s clever egg rice (Egg Rice). At the heart of this Korean pantry meal are two brown butter fried eggs, condensed and caramelized, seasoned with sesame oil and soy sauce. I suggest to put a fluffy egg on top of the hot rice and topping it with seaweed (roasted seaweed). But I also like to shove them into buttered toast, and eat them out of reach outside when I can.

Dallas Mavericks v Phoenix Suns, NBA Playoffs: The Suns set an NBA record this season. It seemed that veteran point guard Chris Paul would finally win the championship. Then they met Luka Doncic. The 23-year-old Mavericks superstar is so good that he sometimes appears to be alone against other teams. The Suns couldn’t find a way to stop Doncic. They have one more chance. Game 7 is Sunday at 8:00 PM EST on TNT.
