Your Weekend: A Selective Guide

Movies: “Avengers: It’s Crowded In Here” is unavoidable — why do I think of the Mae West quotation: “Too much of a good thing can be…wonderful.” TV/Streaming” Wanna feel bad?

Nancy Wilson gives it to us “All Night Long.” Books: Antony Sher, who concludes an engagement of “King Lear” this weekend in Brooklyn, chronicles his adventures in the role in “The Lear Diaries.” But the best recent book on the drama is James Shapiro’s “The Year of Lear.” Sports: How can one not love the Yankees’ shortstop Didi Gregorious?
