About Pop-Up Magazine

Pop-Up Magazine is a touring "live magazine" show, created for a stage, a screen, and a live audience. Contributors tell vivid, new, multimedia stories accompanied by illustration, animation, photography, and an original score performed onstage by our musical collaborators, Magik*Magik Orchestra.

This fall, Pop-Up Magazine is heading on its first themed tour: "The Escape Issue" - produced in collaboration with their sister publication, The California Sunday Magazine. We could all use a little escape. From politics. From the past. From hostile countries and climate change. From the Internet. From negativity. Maybe even from ourselves. Join them for an immersive night of storytelling devoted to escapes big and small, daring and mundane, physical and mental.
