Pop-Up Magazine is a live magazine—a night of new, true stories about the fascinating world around us. With photography, film, radio, and original music all mixed together and performed live onstage by a big cast of talented people.
Past shows have included bestselling authors like Michael Pollan, Alice Walker, and Susan Orlean; filmmakers like Ava DuVernay, Alex Gibney, Phil Lord and Chris Miller, and Barry Jenkins; public radio and podcast personalities like Ira Glass (This American Life), Jad Abrumrad (Radiolab), and Another Round; renowned photographers like Larry Sultan, Alec Soth, Autumn de Wilde, Katy Grannan, and Richard Misrach; artists and actors like Beck, Sasheer Zamata, Kumail Nanjiani, John C. Reilly; and more.
Your favorite story may come from someone you're discovering for the first time.
Afterward, we stick around for drinks and conversation—performers, producers, and an audience as interesting as the people onstage.
The show is unrecorded, and one night only. You have to be there.
