Pop-Up Magazine

Saturday, June 3 @ 7:30pm – 10:00pm
Harris Theater 205 E. Randolph Drive 60601 Chicago , IL

A fascinating cast of radio and podcast producers, filmmakers, writers, and photographers performs new, true multimedia stories about the world around us—politics, food, art, pop culture, design, science, and more. Stories comes to life with animation, photography, sound, illustration, film, and original scores, performed live by house band Magik*Magik Orchestra. The night ends gathered around the bar, with the cast and audience mingling together. Performances are one night only and are not recorded — you have to be there to experience it. “A sensation” - New York Times
