Morbid Anatomy Flea Market

Collect rare books and antiques, eerily cute taxidermy and repurposed skulls at this bustling fair full of morbid curiosities. The Morbid Anatomy Museum has culled together some of its favorite artists to bring you jewelry and decor from beyond the grave. Just make sure it's dead before you wear it.

Washington Square Outdoor Art Exhibit

This city tradition feels fresh every spring when artists following in the footsteps of Jackson Pollock and Willem de Kooning set up shop in the park. Hundreds of exhibitors, from NYU students to artists who remember the Village as a creative enclave, display their paintings, sculptures, photography, jewelry and woodcraft.

La MaMa Moves! Dance Festival 2016

The annual La MaMa Moves! festival runs riot with dance: Programs include Ballez's Sleeping Beauty & the Beast (Apr 29–May 8), a queer spin on fairy tales; Tiffany Mills Company's After the Feast (May 12–15), set in an urban dystopia; and Cardell Dance Theater's Supper, People on the Move (May 14–15), a piece about immigration.

Dear Evan Hansen

“I wish that everything was different,” writes Evan Hansen (Ben Platt). “I wish that I was a part of…something. I wish that anything I said…mattered, to anyone.” It’s a letter to himself, because he has no one else to write to; cripplingly shy, he is all but invisible at high school. But his wish comes true via a tragic twist: A troubled, rageful misfit named Connor (Mike Faist)—the brother of Evan’s crush, Zoe (Laura Dreyfuss, delicately sad)—kills himself after stealing the letter; his grieving parents (Jennifer Laura Thompson and John Dossett) mistake it for a letter that Connor had written to Evan.

Mister Sunday

The sun is finally out and teasing you to get out and have some fun! Justin Carter, an avant-garde DJ-composer, and Eamon Harkin, with a flare for Detroit techno, know how to get a party started. This year, the weekly Mister Sunday summer series moves from its previous Industry City location to the outdoor bar-meets-restaurant venue, Nowadays, located on the edge of Bushwick. There’ll be plenty to eat from with Country Boys Taqueria and Nowadays’ vegan and veggie-friendly kitchen, some fresh, locally brewed beer and sangria, sodas from Brooklyn Soda Works and no restrictions on dogs or kids!

Bushwick Flea

Tired of the tourists snatching the best retro threads at well-known fleas before you even have a chance to dig? Bushwick Flea joined the area’s market scene last year, and a few vendors from the original Brooklyn Flea sell their goods, so sift through their prime loot and avoid the masses. Other sellers run the gamut from Alpha & Omega jewelry to Zingara Vintage. Bonus: live music every Sunday!

“Edgar Degas: A Strange New Beauty”

Incredibly, this show is MoMA’s first-ever monographic exhibition of this Impressionist giant who became one of the most enduring and popular figures of 19th-century art. The exhibit spotlights a little-know aspect of the artist’s work: His experimentation with monotypes, a technique invented in 17th-century Italy.

The Woodsman

Even before writer, codirector, set- and puppet-designer star James Ortiz asks the audience to “imagine” in a brief prologue, we’ve already been thrust into a dark corner of Oz, where gnarled branches loom and unsettling noises signal danger. Strangemen & Co.’s immersive and practically wordless adaptation of the writings of L. Frank Baum uses low-tech stagecraft like evocative Bunraku puppets (the wicked witch is chilling), haunting vocal sound effects and a lone violinist (composer Edward W. Hardy) to tell the backstory of Dorothy’s cherished Tin Man (Ortiz), once a mortal axman who sacrificed an arm and a leg and a whole lot more in the name of love. Emotions are communicated through simple gestures, grunts and glances, not one wasted.

Deep Space

Does clubbing in the ’hood sound like a nightmare? We hear ya. But don’t write off dance-music deity François K’s weekly Deep Space shindig at Cielo, which started more than a decade ago as a dub night and now covers all genres of underground dance music. The only thing it skips is a strict dress code. (Cielo’s, by the way is “an open mind.” Cute.) Bonus: While it’s a staple for househeads, the futuristic, fun vibes won’t intimidate less-frequent clubbers who just want to have a solid Sunday night out.

Weiner

Sexting ex-politician Anthony Weiner won’t be remembered for his discretion, but you have to wonder what inspired him to let a documentary crew queasily capture his comeback—even as more allegations arise.

Sworn Virgin

The arrestingly serene Alba Rohrwacher (I Am Love) takes on her most ambitious role to date: an Albanian “sworn virgin,” one of that culture’s unmarried women who pledges to bind her breasts and live out her life as a man. The real-life setup is a knockout, both ancient and timely, and even though Rohrwacher never quite passes—she looks too much like Barbra Streisand’s Yentl—the movie is on to a larger point, namely about the fluidity of sexual identity and our universal penchant for self-reinvention.

Sing Street

Dublin teens growing up in the gritty 1980s turn to Duran Duran, MTV and plenty of hairspray in the euphoric latest from Once’s John Carney. It’s a film about making your craziest dreams come true.

What have you done with this feature? It used to be a readable roundup. Now it's just an assortment of links that I have to open in a million different tabs. As someone who refers to these weekend roundups quite a bit, I respectfully request that you bring back the old format.
