In a world where everything is recorded and replayed ad nauseam, this show in NYC truly offers an experience, at each show, that you can only live once.
Pop-Up Magazine is a “live magazine” coming to The Town Hall in Manhattan on Thursday, June 8 and Friday, June 9. 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. Truly unmissable, but there’s a kicker, NOTHING will go online — you have to be there to experience it.
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. These prominent contributors perform new, true multimedia stories, each live-scored by a band.
After the show, you’re invited to meet the performers and producers over drinks in the lobby of the theater. The show is unrecorded, and one night only, so roll up and find out why the New York Times called the show “A sensation.”
