Pop-Up Magazine: Love Stories

“Sweeping the nation with live performances of human interest stories…like an emotionally intellectual rock concert.”—Playbill

Pop-Up Magazine is the acclaimed live magazine show, featuring original and unforgettable true stories, art, music, and performance from the world’s great and emerging storytellers and journalists, accompanied by illustration, animation, film, photography, and an original score performed onstage by our musical collaborators, Magik*Magik Orchestra. Imagine a comedy show, play, concert, podcast, and film—all wrapped into one night.

Pop-Up Magazine will embark on a themed tour this fall: Love Stories. First loves and blind dates, heartbreak and missed connections, life-long companionship and chosen family. What does love mean to you? Pop-Up Magazine: Love Stories will explore powerful, hilarious, and moving stories about love in different forms: marriage, friendship, self-love, redemption, longing, and so much more.

With support from Google, Pop-Up Magazine: Love Stories will feature ASL interpreters, open captioning, and ADA accessible seating. For more information, please visit their FAQ.
