Pop-Up Magazine  is a unique series of live-narrated, live-scored, multimedia journalism performances staged at major theaters across the country. Contributors tell vivid, never-before-told stories accompanied by illustration, animation, photography, and an original score performed onstage by our musical collaborators, Magik*Magik Orchestra. We end the night gathered around the bar, performers and audience together. And nothing goes online after—you have to be there to see it.
