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.

Your favorite story may come from someone you're discovering for the first time, or an old favorite you've admired for years.

The show is unrecorded, and no performance is the same as the last. You have to be there.
