12. Avoid the TV trap
You’ll be hanging around home, but don’t just sit in front of the TV all week. Try some entertaining alternatives: Theater : The Glass Menagerie just opened at the American Repertory Theater in Cambridge. Starting March 8, Boston’s Huntington Theatre Company stages A Raisin in the Sun, while Oliver! runs at the Wheelock Family Theatre, in the Fenway, through February 24. Film: The Institute of Contemporary Art on Fan Pier is screening Oscar-nominated short films throughout February and March. If you’re staycationing because you’ve just welcomed a new bundle of joy, try the “Bring Your Baby” matinees at AMC theaters in Framingham, Burlington, and on Boston Common the first Tuesday of every month. Events: If you opted out of a trip to Orlando, you can still see “Disney on Ice Presents Rockin’ Ever After” at the TD Garden in Boston through February 24.
