Located at the Theatre at the Ace Hotel. 

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.

Past shows have included bestselling authors like Michael Pollan, Alice Walker, Susan Orlean, and Baratunde Thurston; Oscar-winning filmmakers; public radio and podcast personalities from shows like
This American LifeRadiolab, and Another Round; renowned photographers like Larry Sultan, Alec Soth, Cheryl Dunn, and Richard Misrach; artists and actors like Beck, Sasheer Zamata, and John C. Reilly.

Your favorite story may come from someone you're discovering for the first time.

Afterward, we stick around for drinks and conversation—performers, producers, and an audience as interesting as the people onstage.

The show is unrecorded, and one night only. You have to be there.
